BURBANK — While the likes of Arcadia High, Burroughs and Crescenta Valley are jockeying for Pacific League softball playoff positioning, Burbank, the top-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division III, continues to ride roughshod over the league.
The Bulldogs provided further evidence of that on Tuesday afternoon, taking a big step forward in the hopes of clinching a league crown, as they used big innings, powerful and opportunistic offense and the steady, if not spectacular, arm of Caitlyn Brooks to roll to a 10-2 league win over Crescenta Valley at McCambridge Park.
“I think we take it game by game,” said Brooks of the team’s approach to grabbing the league title, which the Bulldogs can do with wins Wednesday against Pasadena and Friday against Arcadia after improving to 20-2, 10-0 in league. “I definitely want to win league for the seniors and every girl on the team that’s working hard. That what we’re trying to do is win as a team and work hard.”
