BURBANK — While it came down to the very end, the Pasadena and Burroughs high girls' track and field teams simply didn't have enough to outdo Glendale's Leana Setian and Lauren Hansen in Thursday's tri-Pacific League meet.
The Nitros' duo combined for five victories in a narrow 68-60 win over host Burroughs. Setian and Hansen saved their best and most dramatic finish for last, as they teamed with Kenya Gaskin and Vard Sargsyan to take first in the 4x400-meter relay — the final race of the day — in four minutes 24.50 seconds to just edge Pasadena's team, which clocked in at 4:25.44. (Glendale-Pasadena scores were unavailable.)
"I think overall we became really unified and did our best today," Hansen said. "It's our first tri-meet of the season, so we showed everyone we've been training and practicing really hard."
