ARCADIA — With the Arcadia High boys' track team being a perennial powerhouse in the Pacific League, Burroughs received some encouraging news two weeks ago.
That news came in the form of a Burbank win over the Apaches, giving the Indians hope that they too could possibly topple the defending league champions.
Burroughs realized that aspiration Wednesday, as it remained undefeated in league with a 72 ½-63 ½ victory over the Apaches in a double-dual meet that included Hoover at Arcadia High.
Unfortunately for the Indians girls’ team, it lost to Arcadia, 113 1/2-22 1/2.
The win for the Indians (6-0 in league) sets up a showdown for the Pacific League title. Burroughs will take on the only other undefeated league team in Burbank Wednesday at Memorial Field.
"Honestly, the way I looked at it going in was that regardless of how we did [Wednesday] against Arcadia, if we had a chance to win league we would have to beat Burbank anyway," Burroughs Coach John Peebles said. "We knew Burbank was going to be the big one, but we still had to come out and compete [Wednesday]."
