BURROUGHS HIGH — With the Burroughs High girls' volleyball team down by three points and facing game-point in the opening game against Pacific League foe Arcadia, it appeared as if the Indians were destined for an early deficit.
But Burroughs picked itself up, battled back and turned things around. The Indians scored five straight points to win the game and put the momentum of the match square on their side of the court.
Burroughs then rode that momentum the next two games, staving off Arcadia challenges and riding a wave that would see the Indians earn an unlikely sweep against the visiting Apaches, 26-24, 25-16, 25-23.
"Coming back in that first game was big, real big," Burroughs Coach Edwin Real said. "To be down to game-point and come back to win the game was a big boost. It gave us some life."
Arcadia (8-2, 3-1 in league), the two-time defending league champion, came into the contest with just one loss and ranked No. 8 in CIF Southern Section Division II-A. Burroughs (8-3, 4-0) is ranked ninth in the division.
