BURBANK — Burroughs High’s softball team welcomed CIF Southern Section Division I opponent Canyon Springs for a nonleague doubleheader at Olive Park in the host’s final games before spring break.
The Indians came away with a split against the Cougars Wednesday, pulling away late in the first game for an 8-2 win before dropping the back half of the twin bill, 9-5.
“I’m really happy about the whole day. I think we were winners today,” Burroughs Coach Doug Nicol said. “I was able to get lots of girls in in certain positions the second game and see how they would react against a good team. You don’t always have that opportunity. ... That’s why we play doubleheaders, because it gives us that opportunity.”
