BURBANK HIGH — It is a busy week for the Burbank High and Burroughs track and field teams.
Not only did the squads have to go against one another in their annual rivalry meet Tuesday, but the Indians and Bulldogs — along with the rest of the league — will be back in action Friday for the Pacific League preliminaries at Arcadia High.
"The only other way to do it would be to run the prelims and finals in the same week," Burroughs Coach John Peebles said.
Looking for momentum heading into Friday's meet, the Bulldogs broke some longstanding streaks by sweeping the Indians in Tuesday's event at Burbank High.
While the Bulldogs boys' posted an 82-54 victory, the host girls secured a 74-62 win.
"I know in the girls this is the first time we beat them since 2006," Burbank Coach Darin Wolf said. "And I went as far back at 2003 and we haven't won in boys during that span. So, it was a good day for all of our teams."
