The Burroughs High girls' golf team had a successful season last year. Along with finishing as the runner-up in the Pacific League behind Arcadia, the Indians advanced to the in CIF Southern Section Central Team Divisional, where they finished seventh. The good news for Burroughs is that it has much of the team from last season back, and Coach Greg Everhart said he is hoping his group can compete for a league title. At Burbank, Coach Branco Sevic also has his share of returning talent, which should give the Bulldogs some much-needed experience.

It was in the winter of early 2007 when I had an encounter at Burroughs High. Then-Indians baseball coach Tom Crowther wanted to introduce me to someone. Crowther said the individual was a new coach at the school, and that he would be helping start a new Indians' sport — boys' volleyball. That individual was Joel Brinton. Although Brinton — a former Crescenta Valley player and assistant coach at his alma mater, as well as at La Cañada — seemed like a likeable guy, I secretly wondered if the new coach knew what he was getting himself into.

It was a successful 2010-11 girls' basketball season for the four local programs. While Burroughs High and Bellarmine-Jefferson won championships in their respective leagues, Providence shared a league title and Burbank was able to advance to the CIF Southern Section playoffs. However, all four of the teams lost their share of talented players from last season, with the Bulldogs taking the lightest hit after graduating three seniors. At Burroughs, the Indians lost nine seniors to graduation, the Guards had two key athletes transfer and the Pioneers lost three significant contributors to graduation, including an All-CIF Southern Section player.

Gary Moskowitz HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- Most of the 15 students who spent this year in the opportunity room at John Muir Middle School used to do their homework, but forgot where they left it or forgot to bring it to class. Many of those same students also had behavior problems and poor attendance. But not anymore. Bruce Osgood, principal at Muir, is proud of the difference made in some students with the help of the opportunity room -- a pilot program at Muir Middle for seventh- and eighth-graders struggling with academics, poor attendance and bad behavior.
