BURBANK — The Burroughs High boys' volleyball team was the surprise of the Pacific League this past season.
The Indians rebounded from a fourth-place finish in 2009 to become one of the top two squads in the league.
Along with two wins against Crescenta Valley for the first time, Burroughs also defeated powerhouse Claremont and earned a share of the league crown.
It was the first league championship for a program that has been in existence for just four years — all under Coach Joel Brinton.
The Indians also enjoyed other milestones during the campaign. Along with winning the Crescenta Valley Tournament championship — the program's first tourney title — Burroughs also captured its first postseason contest.
With that type of success, it's not surprising that Burroughs had a group of players who earned all-league honors. In fact, Burroughs had the most all-league selections of any team in the league.
