This is the second in a four-part series looking back on the sports accomplishments of the four local high schools over the past school year. This installment is Burroughs High:
Records were broken, long standing droughts were erased, state competition was realized and league championships were won.
All in all, it was a banner 2010-11 campaign for a group of Indian teams and individuals. In fact, the school enjoyed one of its most fruitful school years in decades. Fine individual performances and deep playoff runs highlighted the year.
Exemplifying that success was senior Lucas Yanez. Yanez was a leader on two Burroughs squads — football and boys' volleyball — that captured Pacific League titles. He leaves the school after setting records and helping both programs build into winners.
In football, he guided the Indians to a share of the Pacific League crown last season after the team won it outright in 2009.
