BURROUGHS HIGH — Burroughs High girls’ basketball Coach Vicky Oganyan knew for her team to have any chance of defeating second-seeded Villa Park on Saturday, it had to limit its turnovers. Unfortunately for Oganyan and the Indians, Burroughs couldn’t limit its miscues, and didn’t have the balance, speed or strength that visiting Villa Park possessed. The Spartans forced 11 turnovers in the second quarter en route to scoring 25 unanswered points during the second and third quarters, as they easily defeated the host Indians, 73-36, in the CIF Southern Section Division IIAA playoffs.

BURROUGHS HIGH — Never did one set mean so much. Realizing his team would have a problem playing against a tough singles contingent from Burroughs High, the Villa Park boys' tennis coach fortified his doubles teams for Friday's CIF Southern Section Division II second-round match. Surmising they would have a good chance at earning a singles sweep, the Indians figured they would have to win just one set in doubles to come out of the contest victorious. That win came in the second of three rounds, as the No. 1 tandem of Phillip Lam and Kevin Hoang provided the eventual winning margin in a 10-8 win by the Indians at home.

BURBANK — There was a major roadblock facing the Burroughs High boys' tennis team in its quest to qualify for its first-ever trip to a CIF Southern Section championship match.

Palm Desert, the No. 1 seed, came into the match with just one loss this season, had two CIF titles (1995 and 2002) to its credit and advanced to two championship matches (2008 and 2010)

BURBANK — The playoff road wasn’t paved with success Thursday for the Burbank High and Burroughs boys’ tennis teams. With the squads both playing away from home, the Bulldogs and Indians dropped first-round Division II matches. While Burbank fell to Valencia, 12-6, Burroughs was knocked off by Villa Park, 11-7. Burbank Coach Loi Phan said windy conditions proved to be tough for his players against the Foothill-League-champion Vikings (17-3). “I think without the wind the match would probably have been closer than it was,” said Phan, whose squad finished third in the Pacific League.

Just a four-meter shot from the Southern Oregon coast, Jordan Thompson found time for recreation in and around Floras Lake. Thompson, the hulking 6-foot-6, 240-pound La Canada High boys' water polo player, got the message loud and clear from family members that he needed to strengthen his legs if he wanted to become a larger physical presence once the 2004 water polo season began. So, Thompson retreated to the cozy body of water situated near the Pacific Ocean and began conditioning.
