BURBANK — Burbank High's Dennis Palacio and Hoover's Jeremy Zadoorian were both looking to start out their Pacific League campaigns with some solid performances.
Both athletes were in fine form Thursday when the Bulldogs hosted the Tornadoes in the league opener for both teams. While Palacio captured four individual events, Zadoorian placed first in two events and ran a leg on Hoover's victorious 4x400-meter relay team.
However, it was Palacio's Bulldogs that were able to come out on top, as Burbank posted a 110-26 victory.
The Bulldogs also won the girls' portion of the meet, 126-6.
Palacio, fresh from starting for the Burbank boys' soccer team, placed first in the 100-meter high hurdles in 16.62 seconds and followed that up by winning the 300 hurdles in 43.89. The senior also shined in the field events, taking the triple jump (39 feet 1inch) and the long jump (19-8).
