SOUTH PASADENA - For the first time in the last 37 years, the Burbank High School girls' volleyball program begins a new season with the title of defending Pacific League champions. But the Bulldogs' defense of that championship will have to wait until next week when they open league play against Arcadia, with whom they split last year's title. The first order of business to open the new season was a tough nonleague matchup on the road against South Pasadena, which sits just outside the top 10 in the Division II-A rankings.

BURBANK - After a successful run last year that saw Burroughs High reach the girls' volleyball CIF Southern Section Division II-A quarterfinals, it was time for the Indians to begin a new campaign Tuesday, starting with a nonleague match at home against Division I-A opponent Hart. Burroughs fought out of an early hole to take the first game, but tailed off after that, dropping the next three and losing, 21-25, 25-18, 25-21, 26-24, to the visiting Indians. "I was pleased with the outcome of the first game," said Burroughs Coach Edwin Real, whose team is ranked No. 10 in Division II-A.

BURBANK - It was hard to tell who was more nervous, as the Providence High girls' volleyball team opened its season Wednesday with a nonleague match against Faith Baptist. While the Pioneers' players might have experienced some jitters in their first competition of the campaign, coach James Jimenez was also feeling the pressure. Jimenez was coaching his first match back after once heading the Providence program and leaving four years ago, "Being gone four years and this being my first game back, I think I was more nervous than the girls," Jimenez said.

For nearly a half-decade, the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' volleyball team has been the most successful of the four programs in the city. Under coach Miguel Segura, the Guards had a streak of seven straight Santa Cruz League championships and a league unbeaten string that has swelled to 52. In addition, Bell-Jeff advanced to the CIF Southern Section quarterfinals for five straight seasons. But Segura, who helped the Guards advance to Division IV-A championship game in 2009, has departed to take the head girls' and boys' volleyball jobs at rival St. Genevieve.

When Daniel Jacobs took the floor as a starter for the Burroughs High boys' volleyball team more than three years ago as a sophomore, he knew what he was stepping into. "There is a tradition of volleyball at Burroughs, for sure," said Jacobs, an outside hitter who finished up his senior season. "When you play for club teams or go to tournaments they know about Burroughs volleyball. There is a reputation there. " Players who have come before Jacobs, talented athletes like Tyler and Lucas Yanez, Josh and Daniel Marbach, Ike Nwachie and Robby Rutecki have put Burroughs on the volleyball map in Southern California in a very short time, as the program was revived just six years ago. "We have sent a large group of players to college from our program," said Indians Coach Joel Brinton, who has been at the helm of the program he helped to bring back since 2007.

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.
