BURBANK - With a crop of good hitters, the Providence High softball team has proven it can score runs this season. The first indication of that came last week when the Pioneers pushed across 16 runs in a victory against Holy Family to open the season. In a nonleague game Tuesday against Oakwood, the Providence offense was at it again, this time to the tune of a 22-run effort. However, the Pioneers' defense did struggle at times against the Gorillas, who were able to take an early lead.

Following that guideline, Bell-Jeff is again going up against top competition this season. Thursday, that competition came in the form of Harvard-Westlake, a Division III program that tied for the Mission League title in 2013.

It was a banner year in 2013 for the local softball teams. Leading the way was Bellarmine-Jefferson High, which won the program's first-ever CIF Southern Section championship after nailing down its fourth straight Santa Cruz League title. Burbank also had a breakthrough season, going undefeated in the Pacific League and securing its first league crown in 26 years. Burroughs and Providence also enjoyed their share of success, as both qualified for the postseason. The good news this season for the quartet is that they all have a solid group of players returning and only the Bulldogs suffered a substantial hit from graduating seniors.

This installment is Burbank High: Coming into the 2012-13 campaign, the Burbank High girls' volleyball, softball and baseball teams had endured decades of futility when it came to winning league championships. The droughts were so lengthy, in fact, that the volleyball program hadn't claimed a title in 37 years, the softball team had gone 26 years without a crown and the baseball team was on its 22nd year without a title.
