ARCADIA — The Burroughs High girls' basketball team had won its share of league games this season in dramatic fashion, including two in overtime, one by one point and one by two points.
So, it was only fitting that the Indians captured the Pacific League championship Friday with another thrilling performance.
Jakarra Waddell hit the winning shot with 12 seconds left against Arcadia to lift Burroughs to a 51-49 victory on the road that gave the Indians their first outright league crown in three years.
Burroughs (20-6, 12-0 in league), which shared the league championship with the Apaches (17-7, 7-4) last season, has a three-game lead over Burbank (17-9, 9-3) with two games remaining.
"It feels great," said Waddell, a senior, about the league championship. "It is something that we've been focusing on and something that we've been working hard for."
The Indians were able to win the game despite having just one player in double figures (Brooke Radcliff with 10) and going eight of 23 from the free-throw line.
