BURROUGHS HIGH — Since joining the Pacific League five years ago, the Burroughs High girls' basketball team has had its share of close battles with Crescenta Valley.
During the four-year span, the teams took turns besting one another, as the Indians finished ahead of the Falcons twice and Crescenta Valley finished ahead of Burroughs twice. In addition, the squads never placed lower than fourth place in league.
This season things have changed, however, as the Falcons field a young, inexperienced team and the Indians field one of the most successful teams in years.
That trend was evident Monday, as Burroughs earned a 58-44 home league victory, giving the Indians a season sweep of the Falcons.
The Indians — ranked No. 6 in CIF Southern Section Division II-AA — defeated Crescenta Valley, 49-36, in their first meeting Jan. 4.
