BURBANK HIGH - It didn't take long for the Burroughs High boys' soccer team to dig itself into a hole during its CIF Southern Section Division IV second-round playoff game against Santa Monica on Tuesday. In fact, it took just 24 seconds. The Vikings took the opening kick and quickly went downfield, tallying the only goal they would need in a 2-0 victory against the Indians at Burbank High. The loss ends the season for Burroughs (10-9-4), which placed second in the Pacific League under Coach Mike Kodama.

BURBANK - The Burbank High boys' basketball team played perhaps its finest half of the season Friday night. The effort was significant because it came in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs against Santa Monica, the division's No. 2 seed and a top-30 team in the state. Not rattled by the Vikings' pedigree, the Bulldogs enjoyed a nine-point lead in the second quarter and carried that advantage into the third. But Burbank couldn't sustain its momentum, struggling in the third quarter, which allowed Santa Monica to surge ahead and escape with a 58-46 win at Burbank.

The study was approved as part of federal legislation signed by President George W. Bush in 2008. Two years later, officials allocated $500,000 to begin the study, which will start with an exhaustive public outreach and exploration process this summer.
