UMe Schools

Alright sports fans. It’s time to rally the troops and get this exciting competition started. For the very first time in the school’s athletic histories, there will be a battle to see who will earn enough points to claim the newest trophy in town- the “myBurbank CUP.”

This trophy will be awarded “in spirit of cross-town competition and the pursuit of athletic excellence.”

The “myBurbank CUP” presented by Trophy King & Gifts will be presented in June of each year to the athletic department of either Burbank or Burroughs High School. The trophy will remain at the school until the winner is decided the following year and so forth.

The winner between Burbank and Burroughs will be determined by the accumulation of points based on head-to-head varsity competition and athletic achievement (league title, playoffs) during the school year. This pertains only to team competition and not individual achievement.

The trophy features a base where each year Trophy King will inscribe the winner of that year’s competition in either blue for Burbank or red for Burroughs.

On top of the base are beautiful acrylic pieces that feature the logos of both Burbank and Burroughs High School.

The top of the trophy features a stunning silver cup that will stand out in the trophy case for the winning high school.

Wear your red or blue with school pride. Each athletic event now carries more meaning in the city than ever before. With that being said, best of luck to both schools.
