Jeff Tully Burbank High swimming Coach Adam Wright finds himself in a strange position every time his teams compete against Hart. Being a former Hart assistant coach, Wright also coached some of the Indian swimmers in youth programs in Santa Clarita. "A lot of time, the Hart kids will come to the pool and give me hugs and high-fives," Wright said. "And some of my swimmers don't know quite what to make of that. I think it bothers some of them." The Bulldog boys' team didn't appear to be put off by Hart's affection for Wright, as Burbank swam well in the first half of its Foothill League meet Wednesday at Burbank.

All they have to do is look at the success of Santa Clarita schools like Hart and Valencia -- which benefit from many youth organizations -- in recent years to see how beneficial it is for high schools to get players who have experience playing football. However, Burbank and Burroughs highs could be reaping the benefits of a strong feeder program, as the Burbank Vikings Youth Tackle Football program -- the city's lone youth organization -- has seen a resurgence and has been growing the past two years.
