Lisha Elsenbach helped lead her Burroughs High girls' basketball team to an accomplishment no other squad in program history was able to accomplish in more than three decades — capturing a league championship.
The senior and her Indians accomplished that feat Tuesday, easily defeating Hoover to clinch the outright Pacific League title, the program's first in 33 years.
But a day after the monumental milestone, Elsenbach had not allowed herself to sit back and relish the moment, or even let herself contemplate the gravity of the championship. Instead, she had something else on her mind.
"It doesn't really feel like we won it yet, because we still have a game to play," Elsenbach said Wednesday. "After we win on Thursday, then I'll be able to enjoy it."
That Thursday matchup was a game against cross-town rival Burbank, the Pacific League finale for both teams. Burroughs took care of business, handily defeating the Bulldogs, 44-24.
