GLENDORA >> Moving around on the volleyball court is nothing new to Loryn Carter.
In her fourth year of starting for St. Lucy’s Priory High School, Carter will be playing her third position. Carter, who has verbally committed to play at UC Irvine next season, has switched hitting positions, going from opposite to outside hitter. She began her high school career as a middle blocker.
“As long as I am able to hit ball, then I am happy,” Carter said of the changes.

BURBANK 38, MONROVIA 20 MONROVIA >> Any thought of this being a down season for the Burbank High School football team was put to rest Friday.
Darnell Williams rushed for 109 yards and Jake Kelley ran for two touchdowns as the Bulldogs shocked host Monrovia 38-20 in the teams’ season opener.
Guy Gibbs threw for 70 yards and two touchdown and Nicolas Warren had 61 yards rushing and a score for Burbank, which opened the season with a win for the eighth consecutive year.
Asaph Zamora threw for 176 yards and a touchdown for Monrovia, which began the season ranked No. 7 in the CIF-SS Central Division. Burbank is unranked in the Southeast Division. Burbank’s Darnell Williams: “I love winning. This team is a blessing. Everyone said we were going to lose this game by 14. We said, ‘No, we’re better than that.’” Monrovia coach Chris Stevens: We had a fast start and then we just couldn’t get anything going offensively. It was hard to move the sticks tonight and when you play an opponent like Burbank, you have to be able to move the ball, and we just didn’t tonight.” — Stephen Ramirez
