A long standing league championship drought was going to be snapped Wednesday.
The Burroughs High and Burbank boys' track and field teams entered the final dual meet of the season tied and undefeated in the Pacific League. With both teams vying for their first crown in the Pacific League, the Indians were looking for their first title in 17 years, while the Bulldogs hadn't notched a championship in 29 years. Both of those titles came in the Foothill League.
Behind outstanding performances by Matt Schwartz and Corwin Scherer, Burroughs was the team which was able to finally end the drought, besting Burbank, 79-57, at Memorial Field.
The Indians (7-0 in league) secured their first title since 1997, which was under co-coaches Mike Krose and John Peebles, the current Burroughs coach.
On the girls' side, it was Burbank which was able to walk away with a 91-45 victory against its rival, securing third place in league.
