2009 Fall Sports Banquet!

November 28, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

On Sunday November 22, Bellarmine-Jefferson High held it’s Annual Fall Sports Banquet to honor athletes from cross country, girls volleyball and football.

This year, besides the normal success from cross country and assorted all-league awards, there was another historical first to celebrate compliments of the girls volleyball team. This 2009 squad was the first team to not only make it past the quarter finals but advance to the CIF finals.

Unfortunately, their run was stopped by Upland Christian Academy. Although disappointed with the outcome, the Lady Guards held their own against top-seeded Upland Christian. Bell-Jeff kept it close in all three games even holding held leads in every game. In the end, Upland Christian just had more experience and went on to win it all. The 4 time league champion CIF Div 4AA Runner Up’s will receive a banner in the gym and with a squad of mostly sophomores a chance to win it all again for the next two years.

Some of the all-league honorees were:


Breanna Pedron, Jocelyn Cervantes (co-MVP’s)

Cross Country

April Tiscareno (MVP), Rishonda Napier, Janell Gabb – Bryan Encerraro (MVP), Isael Farias


Micah Shirley, Alex Davidians (MVP), Abdo Hajj

Bell-Jeff Just Reloading!

Girls Hoops: – One year later and the Bell-Jeff of Burbank girls basketball team just keeps rolling along.

Last year, the Guards won the state Division V championship and this year they want more.

They could be on their way with three new players.

Freshman Leslie Lopez-Wood enrolled in the summer, Layana White transferred from Canyon and sophomore Marilyn Flynn transferred from Burroughs of Burbank.

If that wasn’t enough, Bell-Jeff returns Margeaux Gupilan, Julia Tani, Rishonda Napier and Jasmine Smith.

There should be no shortage of victories for Bryan Camacho and the Guards.

Basketball Madness Kicks Off The Season!

November 19, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Bellarmine-Jefferson High School – The Bell-Jeff Guards 2009-2010 Basketball season officially gets underway Saturday November 21, 2009 at 6pm with Basketball Madness.

“The Small School with BIG Results” will use this annual event to introduce both the defending Div 5A CIF-SS and Div V CIF State Champion girls varsity team along with the new and improved boys basketball program.

Both the girls and the boys programs are now under the direction of CIF Coach of the Year Bryan Camacho who has installed a new system for the boys based on attacking offense and suffocating defensive strategies.

Along with a repeat of last years success from the girls, Coach Camacho predicts the boys program will also do some amazing things this season. He and his coaching staff intend to compete for the Santa Fe league and CIF Championships this year. 

Basketball Madness will feature a different approach this year with the focus on recognizing Bell-Jeff alumni. Several former players from the 1960’s thru the early 2000’s will be in attendance, many who have been practicing on the weekends to scrimmage against coaches, faculty, alumni and current players alike.

Everyone is encouraged to come out and support the kick off event on Saturday night and please come early, because the Guardhouse will be packed!

Also, please mark the date 12/11/09, this will be an all day event with all level’s of both boys and girls playing on that day. The Boys program takes on Providence and the Girls will play Bishop’s from La Jolla, CA. There is also a special jersey retirement celebration planned on that day for former Lady Guard, Kansas University Jayhawk and WNBA player Jaclyn Johnson.
