SOUTHEAST GLENDALE ? Motivation isn?t something lacking inside Burroughs High boys? track and field athlete Dustin Blankenship. Blankenship proved that during Burroughs? Pacific League dual-meet opener Thursday against host Glendale by winning two distance events and the pole vault event to spark Burroughs to a convincing 115-12 victory at Moyse Field. Not many distance runners would find the time to take part in the pole vault, but Blankenship, a junior, just might be the exception.

GLENDALE - Instead of collecting the Bronze Bowl and gathering with it at midfield for a postmeet celebration, the members of the Glendale High boys' and girls' track and field teams opted for something a bit different. Shortly after the Nitros picked up the shiny trophy from the scorer's table, the Nitros took a victory lap around the new all-weather track at Hoover. PHOTOS: Hoover vs. Glendale in league dual track meet There were plenty of participants responsible for Glendale's success, including girls' senior sprinter Kenya Gaskin.

LA CAÑADA - A laid back afternoon produced three unexpected results for the Flintridge Prep track and field program at the team's Prep League cluster meet Thursday afternoon at La Cañada High. Upstart league rival Pasadena Poly upset the Rebels in both the boys' and girls' competitions, 79-56 and 83-70, respectively, on a day in which Flintridge Prep junior Gareth Weiss set the school's all-time record in the pole vault. “Sometimes it's actually a good thing to lose and I really hope this serves as motivation to the team, particularly to the younger athletes who haven't experienced defeat,” Rebels Coach Nick Ponticello said.

CLAREMONT - Plaques were not in short supply for the Flintridge Prep track and field program on what was a banner evening for the boys at the Prep League Finals at Claremont McKenna College on Thursday. The Flintridge Prep boys defended their league title, holding off archrival Pasadena Poly, 82.5-69.5, while earning both a track most valuable player in junior Alan Yoho and a field co-MVP in senior West Nowotny. “We thought going in we'd have a chance to win, but you have to still compete,” Rebels Coach Nick Ponticello said.

GLENDALE - A large crowd flocked to midfield at Moyse Field on Wednesday for yet another big celebration, punctuated by hoisting a trophy in the air. It's become a regular occurrence for the Glendale High track and field program, which continued its domination of cross-town rival Hoover. Backed by some impressive efforts from Lauren Hansen, Andrea Popescu and Mike Williams, Glendale maintained ownership of the Bronze Bowl. Hansen won two individual events and helped win a relay race and Popescu won three individual events to spark the host Glendale girls to a 95-28 Pacific League win against Hoover.

LA CRESCENTA - With the Crescenta Valley High boys' and girls' track and field teams both still in the running for Pacific League championships, every meet is vital for the Falcons. Crescenta Valley was determined to keep those hopes alive Thursday in a tri-league contest against Burroughs and Muir. While the Falcons were concerned about the Indians, who possessed some solid athletes, the Mustangs posed little problem because of a depleted squad. PHOTOS: Track & field event at Crescenta Valley High School   As it turned out, the Falcons only had to moderately worry about Burroughs, as they swept both portions of the meet.
