PROVIDENCE - Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' volleyball Coach Miguel Segura informed his team about a pertinent piece of information prior to its nonleague match Tuesday against Providence. The coach reminded his players that the Guards had not lost to the cross-town rival Pioneers since 2006. Behind the play of seniors Taryn Nelson and Mariah Bankhead, Bell-Jeff increased that winning streak to six with a 25-22, 25-14, 25-18 victory at Providence. The last time the Pioneers defeated the Guards was in 2006 under former coach James Jimenez, as they posted a 25-20, 25-16, 25-20 victory.

BURBANK HIGH - Communication, chemistry and consistency are all important elements to winning volleyball, and the Burbank High girls' squad displayed all three in its nonleague victory Tuesday against visiting Canyon. “The way we played together, our communication, and all the chemistry that we have [paid dividends],” Burbank senior Katie Hooper said were the keys to their second win in as many matches this season. Burbank won, 25-18, 22-25, 25-20, 25-22, to stay unbeaten going into Pacific League play, which starts Thursday against host Muir.

ARCADIA - With a track record of league-title success over the past three decades, opponents can never count on the Arcadia High girls' volleyball team to roll over. Even when Burbank earned a historic sweep against the Apaches last month in the teams' first meeting, the Bulldogs realized they would likely be in for a tough fight in the second matchup. That matchup came Thursday, and Burbank had reason to be leery. The Bulldogs didn't play well from the outset and the Apaches came out fired up and motivated on their home floor.

BURBANK - High implications resulted in a playoff atmosphere Tuesday at Burroughs High when the Indians hosted Arcadia in a battle for first place atop the Pacific League girls' volleyball standings. Perhaps fittingly, the match needed five games to determine a winner, as both teams took turns garnering and sustaining momentum. But it would be the Apaches who played a near-flawless fifth and deciding game to seal the 25-22, 25-12, 15-25, 17-25, 15-10 victory. "We were pretty fired up for this one," said Indians Coach Edwin Real, who guided Burroughs to the CIF Southern Section Division II-A quarterfinals last season after finishing third behind co-champions Burbank and Arcadia.

Burroughs High girls' volleyball Coach Edwin Real was happy with the way his team played early on Tuesday in its CIF Southern Section playoff game. Despite having to travel to Paul Springs for their Division II-A contest, the Indians jumped right in and won the first game. The team was hoping to ride that early success to a win in the opening round. Unfortunately, Burroughs couldn't keep up the momentum, as it lost the next three and suffered a 22-25, 25-22, 25-22, 25-21 loss.

Long before Dylan Walker first competed in a varsity boys’ volleyball match, Flintridge Prep Coach Sean Beattie had an inkling that better days might lie ahead. While Beattie doesn’t consider himself a prophet, he proved to be right about Walker, who would go on to become one of the more decorated players in the program’s history. “I had him in the seventh and eighth grades at Flintridge Prep and could see that he was becoming a great passer who could swing,” Beattie said.

LA CRESCENTA - For quite some time, the Burroughs High and Crescenta Valley boys' volleyball teams had been eager to meet up with the goal of gaining the upper hand in the hunt for the Pacific League championship. The Indians and Falcons met Friday night in the first of two head-to-head contests, with each squad undefeated in league. Thanks to a big effort from Tristan Martin, the Indians are the only unbeaten team standing in league. Martin finished with a team-high 11 kills and Ryan Van Loo contributed 29 assists to power visiting Burroughs to a 25-21, 25-22, 25-18 victory in front of a loud crowd.

When Sarah Brown took over the Burbank High girls' volleyball team in 2007, she stepped into a program that wasn't accustomed to winning. The Bulldogs has a 6-11 record in 2006 and wallowed in fifth place in the Pacific League, missing the CIF Southern Section playoffs. In seven years, Brown changed the culture of the program. Now, instead of battling for a place among the lower teams in the league, Burbank fully expects to be among the league leaders. But, the Brown era ended this week when she officially stepped down as coach.

BURBANK - Weeks of tournament matches, nonleague contests and hours of practice had led the Providence High boys' volleyball team to the moment the Pioneers have been working toward. Providence opened defense of its Liberty League championship by hosting rival Holy Martyrs. The Pioneers weren't particularly crisp, they suffered lapses at times and seemed out of sync on occasion. Despite the problems, Providence was able to overcome its shortcomings to earn a 25-23, 25-19, 25-18 win against the visiting Armens on Tuesday.

BURBANK - The Providence High boys' volleyball team took advantage when it needed to. Trailing inexperienced Bellarmine-Jefferson for most of the second game Monday night in a nonleague contest and down by three and facing match-point, the Pioneers bounced back to even the frame at 24. Then, relying on 6-foot-5 middle hitter Ethan Johnson, along with a couple of well-timed serves, they earned win in the second frame. "Really, we just controlled the ball the way we needed to in order to side out," Providence Coach Josh Eggleston said.

BURBANK - There was plenty of inexperience to go around when the Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' volleyball team took on Village Christian Friday in a nonleague contest. The Guards are young this season with just three returning players. However, things are even younger for the Crusaders, who have just one player back from last season. On top of that, the Crusaders were missing a handful of players; one was competing for the school's basketball team in the state playoffs, another who is a transfer is still ineligible and another who had a school obligation.

BURBANK - Having graduated 10 seniors, a Burbank High boys' volleyball team with plenty of new faces was eager to see how the new squad would gel. The Bulldogs got that chance Tuesday afternoon when they hosted Alhambra in a nonleague game to open their season. In the early going, it didn't look good for Burbank, which dropped the first two games to the Moors. But the Bulldogs battled back and claimed a hard-fought five-game victory, 19-25, 21-25, 25-18, 25-17, 15-12. Since reviving its program three years ago, it was the first five-game win for Burbank.

In the 2013 campaign, Jacobs and Zetterberg shared the Pacific League Player of the Year honor. But Jacobs did graduate with up-upmanship bragging rights over his rival, as Burroughs won the league championship.
