This is the first in a four-part series looking back on the sports accomplishments of the four local high schools during the 2012-13 year. This installment is Bellarmine-Jefferson High: As was the case the previous two seasons, it was again the Bellarmine-Jefferson High softball team that stood out at the school during the year.

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.

BURBANK - Miguel Segura was a fixture on the sideline of the Bellarmine-Jefferson High volleyball programs for more than a decade. During his tenure, he helped develop a number of all-league and All-CIF Southern Section athletes, his girls' team won seven straight league championships and advanced to the Division IV-A title game in 2009 and his boys' squad made it to the CIF quarterfinals in 2007. However, after heading the boys' program for 11 years and the girls for nine, Segura - a 1996 Bell-Jeff graduate - had stepped down to take over the volleyball programs at rival St. Genevieve.

Burroughs High boys' volleyball player Daniel Jacobs and Stephen Zetterberg of rival Claremont have been dominant players the last two seasons in the Pacific League. Fittingly, the two have led their respective teams to two consecutive league championships, as the Indians and Wolfpack have shared the crown in each of the last two seasons. Jacobs and Zetterberg have also become synonymous with success the last two seasons when it comes to the top award in the Pacific League. For the second consecutive season, Jacobs and Zetterberg have been named the co-league players of the year "I don't mind sharing it with him because he's such a good player," said Jacobs, a senior outside hitter.

SOUTH PASADENA - The South Pasadena High boys' volleyball team had to play Saturday evening's CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinal playoff match against Heritage Christian not at home as scheduled, but a few blocks away at South Pasadena Middle School. A bingo game has been slated for the Tigers' home gym. Yep, South Pasadena got bumped for bingo. No matter. The way the Tigers played for much of Saturday, they would have been successful regardless of the venue, as South Pasadena defeated Heritage Christian in four games, 25-15, 20-25, 25-15, 25-19.
