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.

After winning its first Liberty League championship in 13 years a year ago, the Pioneers lost two key players, namely All-CIF Southern Section standout Phil Harvey, who graduated. After the team's next-best offensive weapon transferred, even Pioneers Coach Josh Eggleston thought the prospect of his team repeating as league champion was slim at best. But his players kept telling the coach that winning league was something they could do, even if the coach brushed it off. Having to retool the offense and bring up a crop of players from the junior varsity program, Eggleston helped guide the Pioneers in the right direction.

BURBANK - Crescenta Valley High was the latest squad trying to derail the Pacific League juggernaut that is the Burroughs boys' volleyball team this season.

Unfortunately for the Crescenta Valley, it was not able to accomplish either.

BURBANK - Perhaps a year from now, the Burbank High boys' volleyball team will take a game from Burroughs, the Bulldogs' cross-town and Pacific League rival. In their six league meetings since 2012, the year that the Bulldogs restarted their boys' volleyball program, Burroughs has won all nine games, including three in a convincing fashion in Friday's match at Burbank High. The Indians, winners of four straight league titles, needed just 61 minutes to defeat Burbank, 25-14, 25-16, 25-13, remaining undefeated in league and needing one more win to clinch a share of another league crown.

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.
