Burbank Suffers Season Ending Loss

I enjoyed watching and being a part of our eight home games this season at the brand new Titan Stadium. Burbank had a great team this season, going 9-1 and winning the Metro Conference championship for the second year in a row.

But, I knew Oak Ridge was going to be tough. They were. Our season ended with a 30-28 loss in the opening round of the playoffs. This was, by far, the tightest first-round game of the post-season. It came down to the final two minutes.

Coach John Heffernan and staff and players have no need to hang their heads over this one. They played (and coached) their hearts out. Good job. Keep up the great work!

National Letter of Intent Day, 2011

Each November several of our area athletes, usually in advance of their seasons, sign a National Letter of Intent with the college of their choice.

At Sheldon there were three senior softball players off the defending Section championship team announcing their intent, Alexis Cooper who will attend Arizona State, Meshalon Moore who will go to UC-Santa Barbara and Danielle Wiltz, who signed with Nevada-Reno.

Congratulations to all these terrific softball players.
