There is really no easy way to connect the dots linking the two sports Liz Seward has chosen to pursue in her life. And the sports couldn't be more different. When Seward, 25, graduated from Burroughs High in 2006, she was a decorated water polo player, earning first-team All-Area and all-league accolades. But after graduating from UC Irvine, she has decided to go in a completely different direction. Instead of using her talents in the pool, Seward now competes internationally in the martial art of sumo.

Lolita Harper HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- They clapped, stomped, sang and shook their groove thangs. And although the toddlers in the Kindermusik program at Burbank First United Methodist Church are still mastering their coordination and speaking skills, the tuneful tots proved Monday that they can shake maracas with the best of them. For Zahra Beihold of Glendale and her 2-year-old daughter, Emily, a previous class was so beneficial they enrolled for a second session.

tullyBurroughs doesn't have enough to knock off Dana Hills in 14-4 wild-card loss.BURBANK -- It was an accomplishment for the Burroughs High girls' water polo team just to make the CIF Southern Section Division I postseason. The team's coach stepped down early into the season and the Indians were afforded only a handful of nonleague matches, which gave them little experience prior to Almont League play. Although Burroughs was defeated, 14-4, Tuesday in a wild-card match at Dana Hills -- ending its season -- Coach Carlos Ponce has nothing but praise for a group of players who have come together as a team.
