Burroughs Maintains Hold of the myBurbank CUP

By Rick Assad

Competition is the lifeblood of sports, and when it comes to cross-town high school rivals Burbank and Burroughs, it can mean even more.

The “myBurbank CUP” has been around two years, and for the second time the Indians have taken the prized trophy which was presented to the school recently at the Burroughs’ athletic department office. Burroughs defeated Burbank, 96-56, to conclude the 2014-15 athletic year.

Points are awarded based on head-to-head competition with the winning team getting one point in sports contested more than once, and two points when the sport is contested once.

If a team sweeps, it gets one point. If a team wins the league title, it receives four points, and an undefeated league title means five points. Add one point for a CIF Southern Section playoff appearance, two if the team wins one playoff game, three for two playoff victories, five for three playoff wins, seven for four wins, eight for four wins and a CIF title, and 10 points for five wins and a CIF crown.

If a team makes a state appearance, an additional two points are earned, four if the squad wins a state contest, six for two state victories, eight if the team wins a Southern California Regional game, and 12 points if the team takes the state championship.

“I’ve been part of athletics at Burroughs for a long time,” said Kenny Knoop, Assistant Principal of Athletics and Activities. “I was a football player. I’m a coach and I’m in the athletic department. I know everybody in the athletic department works really hard and the kids work really hard.”

Knoop went on: “When I played football here, we didn’t win many games. Wins were the icing on the cake. But I look at it as at least I got a chance to play, and I was blessed. It’s good to see so many of the programs successful. Of course, football gets a lot of attention because it’s the first sport starting the school year.”

Burroughs Principal Deborah Madrigal was thrilled her school prevailed over rival Burbank in claiming the “myBurbank CUP,” which is presented by Trophy King & Gifts of Burbank.

“I’m definitely proud of all the students who helped us win,” Madrigal said. “There’s a lot of hard work that goes in and working together to create the results. It’s the students, the staff and the coaches that helped us win.”

Madrigal believes winning the “myBurbank CUP” keeps school spirit alive and thriving. “It’s always nice to win,” she said. “When you win, the morale on campus is happy.”

Matt Chambers, Assistant Principal, was effusive in his praise for all concerned in helping Burroughs claim a second “myBurbank CUP.”

“I think the credit for our success in winning this trophy has to go to the athletic department,” he said, “and that’s Athletic Directors Jose Valle and Marty Garrison, along with athletic secretary Debbie Gudzin.”

Chambers added: “They have great support, but it starts at the top and it trickles down to the coaches and the athletes. There’s stability in the athletic department and with our coaches. There are 18 different coaches, and most of them have been around for many years. There’s continuity here and that helps being successful.”

Garrison has been a fixture at Burroughs for three decades. “For me, it’s about having great leaders,” he said. “People like Jon Lloyd and Brian Hurst. I think since 1948 until now, we’ve had five athletic directors. The guys stick around here. Everybody bought in here. We have stability. We teach more than winning. We don’t always have winning teams, but we have successful people.”

Garrison pointed to the cramped office he occupies and noted. “We do a lot with the space we have,” he said. “There’s a lot of dedication here.”

Drum roll please….

Without further ado, it’s time to officially present the winner of the 2014-15 “myBurbank CUP” trophy presented by Trophy King and Gifts.

And the winner is…….John Burroughs High School!

By virtue of its 96-56 victory over Burbank High for the past athletic calendar year, the Indians have won the “myBurbank CUP” for the second consecutive campaign. Burroughs won the battle for the inaugural silver CUP a year ago by a 79-56 score.

myBurbank-Trophy-3579-202x450A challenge was presented to each school’s athletic departments to compete and earn enough points to claim the newest trophy in town.

This coveted and stunning trophy will be annually recognized for “the spirit of cross-town competition and the pursuit of athletic excellence.”

The “myBurbank CUP” presented by Trophy King and 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 winning school to showcase to its community until the winner is decided the following year and so forth.

The winner between Burbank and Burroughs was determined by the accumulation of points based on head-to-head varsity competition and athletic achievement (league titles, playoff success, bonus points for season sweeps against each other) during the school year. This pertains only to team competition and not individual achievement.

During fall competition, Burbank took an early 32-30 lead by taking the head-to-head battles (11-9) while tying JB in athletic excellence (21-21). The highlight of the fall was the first-ever CIF championship in Burroughs’ history when the boys cross country team won the CIF Division I title.

Burroughs responded with a strong winter by knocking off Burbank, 20-8. This included a 6-3 advantage in head-to-head matchups and a 14-5 victory in athletic excellence.

myBurbank-Trophy-3584-268x450The spring sports season arrived with Burroughs holding a 10-point margin, 50-40, in the race for the “myBurbank CUP.” An anticipated close duel turned out to be a mere afterthought as JBHS poured it on with a decisive 16-7 win in head-to-head competition and a 30-9 advantage in athletic excellence as the Indians rolled behind the league titles won by their baseball, boys volleyball and softball teams.

Burroughs took the spring by a total of 46-16 which resulted in a convincing 96-56 win in cumulative points to take ownership of the second annual “myBurbank CUP.”

We would like to thank Burbank’s own Trophy King and Gifts located at 1509 W. Magnolia Blvd. for their incredible kind gesture and generosity. They donated this spectacular trophy that will be kept each year at the winning high school. Please visit at http://burbanktrophies.com or call at (818) 848-3566.

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

myBurbank-Trophy-3582-475x450On top of the base are beautiful acrylic pieces that feature the logos of both Burroughs and Burbank High School.

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

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 next year as the battle for the “myBurbank CUP” resumes.

Without further ado, it’s time to officially present the winner of the “myBurbank CUP” trophy presented by Trophy King and Gifts to John Burroughs High School.

By virtue of its 79-56 victory over Burbank High for the 2014-14 athletic calendar year, the Indians have won the inaugural “myBurbank CUP.”

“It is an honor for our school to win the ‘myBurbank CUP’ because it is the first time that our community has a competition that takes into account all team sports,” said Matt Chambers, Burroughs Assistant Principal of Athletics. “This trophy is not about an individual’s performance, but rather the efforts and success of all programs.”

The spring sports season arrived with Burbank holding a narrow 41-38 lead in the race for the “myBurbank CUP.” An anticipated close duel turned out to be a mere afterthought as JBHS poured it on with a decisive 18-4 win in head-to-head competition and a 23-11 advantage in athletic excellence as BHS struggled down the stretch.

Burroughs took the spring by a total of 41-15 which resulted in a surprisingly easy 79-56 win in cumulative points to take ownership of the first annual “myBurbank CUP.”

“Any success that was earned during the 2013-14 athletic year can be attributed to the commitment of our players, dedication of our coaches, and support from our parents,” said Oscar Macias, Assistant Principal of Instruction at Burroughs and loyal supporter at many Indian sporting events.

Last week myBurbank Sports Editor Dick Dornan presented the “myBurbank CUP” trophy to Burroughs Principal John Paramo and the athletic administration (Matt Chambers, Athletic Directors Marty Garrison and Jose Valle).
