PAL Re-aligns for 2005

The 2004-05 season may be over, but changes for next season have begun.  The P.A.L. will be split into three, six team divisions depending on region which means there will only be ten league games for 2005-06.  This new 3-division format will last through the 2007-2008 season. The P.A.L. realignment is as follows...

PAL North PAL Central PAL South
El Camino Colts Aragon Dons Carlmont Scots
Jefferson Indians Burlingame Panthers Half Moon Bay Cougars
Oceana Sharks Capuchino Mustangs Menlo Atherton Bears
S.S.F. Warriors Hillsdale Knights Menlo Knights
Terra Nova Tigers Mills Vikings Sequoia Cherokees
Westmoor Rams San Mateo Bearcats Woodside Wildcats

Panthers take 2nd in WYBT

Happy New Year!

Burlingame ended 2005 with a week of sun, surf, and basketball as the Panthers went 3-1 in the World Youth Basketball tournament, which was good enough for second place.

The Panthers opened things up Monday with an opening round loss to the Troy Warriors of Fullerton 60-52.  Senior forward Troy Kalbhenn shot 9-16 for a tournament high 22 points.

Burlingame would rebound after that loss on Tuesday by defeating the Buckley Griffins of Sherman Oaks 59-51.  Kalbhenn shot 6-16 for 16 points and 7 rebounds.  Junior forward Louis Obeidi also pitched in with 8 points and 8 rebounds.

Their winning streak would continue into Friday and Saturday as the Panthers beat the Lodi Flames 49-41 (Friday) and the host Kealakehe Waveriders 58-49 (Saturday).  Obeidi recorded the first double-double of the season Friday shooting 7-13 for 20 points and 13 rebounds (10 offensive).  Senior forward Vince Riggio had 8 steals in the final two games and led the team with 9 steals in the tournament.

Burlingame looks to welcome in 2006 with a win Wednesday, January 4th against the Westmoor Rams.  Following that game, Burlingame will host yet another PAL North school January 7th...the Jefferson Indians.  Both games are at 7:00.
