Burroughs High girls' water polo Coach Michael Singhanate knows the task facing his team will be a daunting one. But as has been the case all season, he is hoping this recent challenge will provide another learning experience for his players. Burroughs was able to garner the fourth and final automatic postseason berth from the Pacific League and, as its reward; it will travel to face top-seeded Riverside Poly. The Indians will open the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs by heading to face the Bears, the Inland Valley League champion and overall No. 1 seed in the tournament Wednesday.

The previous two seasons, the Burroughs High boys' tennis team was able to play its way to two straight appearances in the CIF Southern Section Division II semifinals. In both years, the Indians were paced by talented singles player Garrett Auproux, who captured two straight Pacific League singles titles while being named the All-Area Singles Player of the Year twice. However, the Indians knew their postseason road was going to get more difficult this season when they were moved up to challenging Division I, where some of the most talented teams in the nation preside.

Last season, the Providence High girls' basketball team went into the CIF State Basketball Championships with wide-eyed wonder. The Pioneers program had never participated in state competition and the team ventured blindly into uncharted territory. But Providence made it seem like it had been there before, defeating Rock Academy, 68-35, and then Orangewood Academy, 44-34, before advancing to the regional semifinals. In the game, Providence saw its season come to an end with a 64-28 loss to Mission Prep.

Despite finishing second in the Pacific League behind the CIF Southern Section Division V tournament's top seed in Crescenta Valley High, Burroughs did not exactly get a favorable draw when Sunday's playoff pairings were released. But Indians Coach Danny Garcia finds himself “pretty happy” with playing Los Padres League champion Lompoc Cabrillio in the first round on Wednesday at 5 p.m., but was disappointed that it will be on the road. “I kinda assumed we would be home because we played at home last year after we finished second,” said Garcia, whose Indians were one of four second-place teams out of six in the division that got road matches.

BURBANK - There were two contests in one taking place during Pacific League girls' soccer action at Burroughs Memorial Field on Wednesday afternoon. The first revolved around a brutish game in which both teams combined for three cards, two ejections, two warnings against the crowd and a physical level of play that perhaps neither the Bulldogs or Indians were aptly prepared. The second and most important, revolving around simple wins and losses and league standing, was perhaps lost in the above interference, as host Burroughs, which, behind a hat trick from junior striker Emma Pineiro, was victorious versus Pasadena, 4-0. “It was definitely a physical game and some of my girls are not used to that stuff,” Burroughs second-year Coach Eddie Garcia said.

VALENCIA - Two games into the season and the Burroughs High girls' basketball team is still trying to work out the kinks. Some of those kinks were evident throughout the first three quarters Wednesday in a pool-play game of the Valencia High Hive Classic against Agoura. The Indians had trouble with their transition defense and didn't shoot the ball well, allowing the Chargers to take a double-digit lead. However, Burroughs battled back in the fourth quarter and actually had a lead.
