BURBANK — Since it resurrected its boys' varsity volleyball program two seasons ago, Burbank High has had a tough time against cross-town rival Burroughs.
In two years, the Indians dominated the city competition, earning sweeps in all four matches en route to back-to-back Pacific League championships.
For this season's first meeting between the squads, at least on paper, it looked as if Burroughs might have its hands full with the upstart Bulldogs. Burbank, off to its best start ever, came into Wednesday's matchup undefeated in league with only one loss to its record.
However, although the Bulldogs might have a talented group, they just don't seem to be at Burroughs' level just yet, as the Indians rolled to a 25-15, 25-15, 25-16 victory at home.
The win keeps Burroughs (9-3, 3-0 in league), ranked No. 8 in CIF Southern Section Division II, tied for first place in the Pacific League with Crescenta Valley (13-0, 3-0). The Indians and Falcons will clash for the first time this season April 11 at Burroughs.
