PROVIDENCE HIGH — The Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' volleyball team was hoping to make a positive statement with its play in the 14th annual Providence Tournament. Playing against a tough Cathedral team, the Guards were determined to make a point in a first-round match Thursday. Although Bell-Jeff likely accomplished its goal, it would have preferred to have done so with a victory. The Guards fought back from a one-game deficit and pushed the Phantoms to the brink in the deciding game, only to fall in a 25-19, 18-25, 15-13, opening-season loss in the match at Providence High.

The Burbank High girls' volleyball team was hoping to ride the momentum of an opening-round win in the CIF Southern Section playoffs two days earlier when it took part in a second-round contest Thursday. But the Bulldogs faced a big task in the form of No. 2 seed Whittier Christian, which was hosting the Division II-A match. The Heralds proved too much for Burbank to handle, as the Bulldogs went down in defeat, 25-10, 25-10, 25-19, ending their season. "That team hit harder and they played faster than any team we played against this season," Burbank Coach Sarah Brown said.

When she arrived at Burbank High as a freshman, Katie Hooper was determined to play multiple sports. Along with softball, Hooper competed in girls' volleyball and girls' soccer. However, after enjoying a successful sophomore season on the diamond for the Bulldogs, Hooper said she began to hear rumblings that she should specialize in one sport and not divert her efforts among multiple endeavors. "There were some people who did tell me that," said Hooper, who earned All-CIF Southern Section Division II honors after batting .539 with 48 hits, 45 runs batted in, 32 runs scored and nine home runs as a sophomore in 2010.

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — The Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls’ basketball team isn’t the only program at the school that has the talent to make it to a CIF Southern Section championship. That point was made Tuesday when the Guards girls’ volleyball team earned a spot in the Division IVA title match. Bell-Jeff had little trouble disposing of Desert Hot Springs, as it rolled to a 25-11, 25-18, 25-23 victory at home. The championship run is historic for Bell-Jeff (23-8)

BURBANK HIGH — The first time the Burbank High boys' volleyball team played Arcadia earlier this season, the Bulldogs came two points away from forcing a winner-take-all fifth game on the Apaches' home floor. With confidence that they could possibly turn the tide on Arcadia when the teams met Wednesday at Burbank, the Bulldogs went into the Pacific League contest with high expectations. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, the second matchup against the Apaches ultimately yielded the same result as the first, as Burbank fell in four games, 25-14, 25-16, 22-25, 25-14.

They're twin brothers, born two minutes apart. They are separate stars in two different sports, at two different positions. But beyond that, there is hardly anything separating Burroughs High athletes Lucas and Tyler Yanez. "I don't ever plan on breaking away from my brother," said Lucas, who is older. Tyler echoes his brother's sentiments: "I've never really left him. We've always done everything together. " The pair of seniors star for both the football and boys' volleyball teams at Burroughs.

It's admirable when an athlete can finish his high school career knowing that he left an indelible mark on an athletic program. But to leave that mark on two separate programs is nothing short of impressive. Lucas Yanez did just that at Burroughs High. In football and boys' volleyball, Yanez put up monster numbers in the sports during his senior campaign and emerged as a leader for both teams. But what was more impressive was the way Yanez was able to impact the overall success of the two programs.

Jeff Tully Tommy Boucher calls what he did during the spring of his sophomore year at Providence High a momentary lapse. After playing volleyball as a freshman, Boucher decided to compete for the Pioneer baseball team as a sophomore, taking a chance on a sport he was unsure what success it would hold. Although he did fine in baseball, he decided to go back to volleyball, a sport he truly enjoyed. That decision paid off, not only for the Pioneers the past two seasons, but it also turned out to be a lucrative decision for Boucher.

Oshin Grigorian cheered from the sidelines Saturday as his daughter tried to spike a volleyball at the gym at Pacific Park Community Center. “They are very experienced players,” Grigorian said of his daughter’s team’s opponents. But winning wasn’t the point. Grigorian’s daughter was playing as a part of the Homenetmen Glendale “Ararat” chapter’s girls’ volleyball team for the organization’s fourth annual Friendship Games, which brought out more than 500 young athletes from across the community.
