Burroughs earns nonleague sweep


Burroughs d. Gabrielino, 25-12, 25-14, 25-11: The Indians improved to 10-2 with the nonleague win Tuesday at home.

Burroughs, ranked No. 3 in CIF Southern Section Division III, received 28 assists, five kills and two blocks from Tyler Yanez. Lucas Yanez had seven kills and five digs, Robby Rutecki added seven kills and four blocks and Daniel Jacobs had six kills.



Burroughs 8, Arcadia 1: Despite wet conditions, the teams were able to get in their Pacific League opener Tuesday at Arcadia.

Junior pitcher Heather Haynes threw a complete game for the Indians (5-3), giving up four hits and one unearned run to improve her record to 3-0.

Junior third baseman Haley Shulman went three for three with a walk, single, double and triple. She also drove in a run and a stole a base. Junior catcher Shannon Trujillo went two for four with an RBI and sophomore leftfielder Brice Edrington went two for three with four stolen bases.

Burroughs stole six bases in the game.



Bellarmine-Jefferson 7, St. Genevieve 6: The Guards pushed across five runs — all with two outs — in the seventh inning to pull out a Santa Fe League victory Tuesday on the road.

Bell-Jeff (4-2, 2-0 in league) received two runs batted in each from Johnny Karalis and Mitch Kellogg, Ryan Okishii went two for four with an RBI and Brian DelValle went three for four with an RBI.

The Guards scored the winning run with two out in the seventh with a bit of trickery. Karalis was a third base and DelValle was at first with Sam Kachikian at the plate. After a strike on Kachikian, Bell-Jeff Coach Hector Perez had DelValle break for second. But instead of going to the base, he stopped in the base path and fell to the infield, faking a hurt ankle. When the St. Genevieve catcher tried to throw to second, DelValle got up and made it safely at second, as Karalis motored home with the winning run.

“It was one of the wildest games I’ve ever been a part of,” Perez said.
