In 1969, former Burroughs star Lynn Shackelford ended a fine career at UCLA by helping the Bruins -- who also featured Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar)

BURBANK -- It's not uncommon for some college graduates to take a break after they finish school and escape to Europe for awhile. Former Burroughs High and UCLA men's water polo star Alfonso Tucay is doing just that. However, unlike other college grads who go abroad to take a vacation, Tucay is going to Europe to work. The 22-year-old, who graduated with a degree in political science and who plans to go to law school -- someday -- has signed a one-year professional contract with Les Frances Naguers Cheminots of the French First Division.

But reality struck hard for Magnante and many players in major league baseball a week ago when they heard of the death of St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Darryl Kile. Kyle died in his sleep June 21. An initial autopsy reveled that Kyle died of coronary atherosclerosis, a blockage of main arteries to the heart.

Jeff Tully If all goes well, a group of young Burbank tennis players will get the opportunity to play at the same venue that has hosted the likes of Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras. Two 12-and-under youth teams from the Burbank Tennis Center will be busy this weekend taking part in the Southern California Assn. Championships at UCLA. If the local boys' and girls' squads do well in the six-member team-tennis format event Saturday at the Sunset Canyon Recreation Center, they will earn a spot in Sunday's finals at the center-court stadium at Los Angeles Tennis Center on the UCLA campus.

Jeff Tully BURBANK -- Alfonso Tucay did all he could to help his UCLA men's water polo team win its third straight NCAA championship. However, despite two goals from the former Burroughs High standout, the Bruins fell Sunday to top-ranked Stanford, 8-5, in the title match at Palo Alto. It was the third time this season Stanford (22-1) defeated the Bruins (16-5). Brett Ormsby also had two goals for UCLA. The Bruins suffered from a sputtering offense early in the match, as the Cardinal jumped out to a 3-0 lead midway through the first quarter.
