The Burroughs High boys’ golf team is coming off a season in which it placed third in the Pacific League behind Arcadia and Crescenta Valley.
However, the Indians lost their No. 1 and No. 2 golfers, including former All-Area honoree Kelsey Danzeisen, who placed eight in league last season. The other was Chris Kesicbasian, who placed 11in in league.
Burbank finished fourth in the Pacific League in 2012, but the team is off to a good start and the Bulldogs could be a factor in determining the eventual league champion.
Here is a closer look at the teams.
Despite the loss of two key players, Indians Coach Greg Everhart likes what he sees with his lineup this season.
“The two we lost were really No. 1 and No. 2 for their four years at Burroughs,” Everhart said. “But we have an influx of freshmen this season and we actually have eight freshmen in the program, so that’s good. One of the freshmen is Chris’ younger brother, Daniel. We look for him to step in and almost fill his brother’s shoes. He is actually No. 2 on our team right now and that’s pretty impressive for a freshman.”
