BURROUGHS HIGH ? Revenge was at stake Tuesday when the Burroughs High boys? tennis team took on San Luis Obispo in a CIF Southern Section Division II playoff match. Last season, the Indians had to travel more than four hours to take on the Tigers in a first-round contest. Unfortunately, the locals lost by six sets. This time around, although the venue was different, the end result was almost identical, as San Luis Obispo defeated the Indians, 13-5, at Burroughs High. The loss was only the second of the season for the Indians (17-2)

The Bulldogs (11-7) ? who didn't qualify for the postseason for the first time in two decades last season ? were the No. 3 team from the Foothill League.

BURBANK ? Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' volleyball Coach Miguel Segura isn't upset that his team has to travel to Santa Barbara for the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs. He's not discouraged that his team has to take on a league champion in Laguna Blanca, and he's put off by the fact that not many give his Guards a chance at getting to the second round. Segura is just happy his squad is in the postseason. "I can't be more happy or more proud of our team to be able to make it to the playoffs," said Segura, whose team is in the playoffs for the first time in nine years.

BURBANK — There were two distinct reactions from local boys' tennis coaches when the CIF Southern Section pairings were released Monday afternoon. Burbank High Coach Paul McNiff was pleased to open Division II play with a home match against former Foothill League foe Hart. "I'm actually pleased to play a team like Hart in the first round," said McNiff, whose squad will host the Indians at 3:15 p.m. Friday. "It's better for us to get a program that has had some success in the past, instead of drawing a team that would be a walk-over."

BURBANK — When Burbank High boys’ tennis player Arthur Karagezian arrived early Friday morning for the CIF Southern Section Individual Tournament, he got a surprise. Karagezian, a sophomore, found himself one of the seeded singles players in the Arcadia Regional at Arcadia County Park. He was rewarded with a bye in the first round, one of only two players who didn’t have to compete in the opening round. “The only problem with getting the bye was that Arthur had to sit around and wait for the second round,” Burbank Coach Loi Phan said.
