BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High boys’ basketball team was subjected to a steady diet of three-point attempts in the early going of its opening playoff game. Vista del Lago, from Moreno Valley, came out of the gate of its CIF Southern Section Division IIAA contest and began chucking long-range shots against the Indians. Some of the offerings were five to 10 feet behind the arc and would have been three-pointers in the college game. Luckily for Burroughs, the Ravens couldn’t convert many of their long-distance offerings, as the Indians used a second-half rally to win, 58-48, at Burroughs.

Jeff Tully The Bellarmine- Jefferson High baseball team had a plan when it scheduled its nonleague games. Early in the season, the Guards played nonleague contests against Lake Isabella Kern Valley, Malibu Kilpatrick, North Hollywood Campbell Hall, Bermuda Dunes Desert Christian and Acton Vasquez, schools that all qualified for the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs. It was Coach Hector Perez's philosophy that by taking on tough competition, the Guards would be ready to face the best the division had to offer in the playoffs.
