This is the third in a four-part series looking back on the sports accomplishments of the four local high schools during the 2011-12 year. This installment is Burroughs High:
League championships, deep CIF Southern Section playoff runs and fine individual accomplishments highlighted a successful 2011-12 campaign at Burroughs High.
Right out of the gate, the Indians began the year with a solid fall campaign, which included a pair of stellar individual accomplishments.
Senior Anthony Monroy concluded his high school cross-country career in the CIF-State Cross-Country Championships by finishing 31st in the Division I final in a time of 15 minutes 50 seconds. It was Monroy's second straight appearance in the State Meet, placing 19th in 15:22 over the 5-kilometer course in 2010.
Monroy was only the third Burroughs runner to advance to state competition and just the second to earn back-to-back invitations. Sadee Martinez qualified for the State Meet in girls' competition in 2006 and '07 and Western Nelson made it to the boys' race in 2008.
