Burroughs High's girls' basketball team turned in a perfect run through the Pacific League, winning the league crown just as Providence claimed the Liberty League championship. Those league accomplishments will have both the Indians and Pioneers nestled in their home gyms when the playoffs start this week after pairings were released on Sunday, while Burbank will venture on the road. Burroughs (22-6) was bestowed with the No. 6 seed and will host Riverside Poly (12-15), which finished fourth in the Inland Valley League, to open the Division 1-A postseason.

Burroughs High girls' water polo was able to garner the fourth and final automatic postseason berth from the Pacific League and, as its reward, it will travel to face top-seeded Riverside Poly. The Indians will open the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs by heading to face Riverside Poly, the Inland Valley League champion and overall No. 1 seed in the tournament on Wednesday. Riverside Poly was the runner-up in last season's championship voyage, losing to Crescenta Valley.

BURBANK - The only thing standing in the way of a perfect Pacific League season for the Burroughs High girls' basketball team was one opponent. PHOTOS: Burroughs vs. Burbank league girls' basketball However, that opponent was cross-town rival Burbank, which narrowly lost to the Indians by one point in the teams' first meeting in January. But there was no late-game heroics needed by Burroughs on Thursday, as it secured that perfect campaign by defeating the Bulldogs on its home floor, 58-47, in the final game of the regular season.

BURBANK - With a win in its last game, coupled with a loss by Pasadena, the Burroughs High boys' soccer team rose back to the top of the Pacific League standings. But to ensure that they stayed there, the Indians would have to beat a scrappy fourth-place Muir squad that had won three straight contests. The perch atop the league seemed perilous, as Burroughs trailed at the break, but the Indians got two second-half goals from striker Milosh Petko to pull out a 2-1 victory Tuesday afternoon at Memorial Field.

BURBANK - Burroughs High's boys' basketball team was the team to beat after the first half of the Pacific League season. Not only were the Indians in first place, but they were undefeated. However, in the second half of league, Burroughs has been eliminated from title contention and the Indians are just trying to hang on for victories Although the Indians battled in their league game Tuesday against Muir, they came up short again - which has been the theme for the squad during the second half of league play.

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. PHOTOS: Burroughs vs. Arcadia league girls' basketball 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.

PASADENA - It was one of the worst ways to start what was arguably its most important match of the season. In a first-place Pacific League battle with Pasadena on Wednesday, the Burroughs High boys' soccer team put itself in a precarious situation after one of its players drew a red card for a foul inside the goalbox in the first 15 seconds of the contest on the road. The Bulldogs were given a penalty kick, which they made good on. But what was more detrimental for Burroughs was that it was forced to play a man down.

PASADENA - When the Burroughs High boys' basketball team played defending Pacific League champion Pasadena earlier in the season, it was the Indians who brought the intensity and came away with a five-point victory at home. In the second meeting between the teams Wednesday, the Indians realized they would have to again play with that same level of intensity if they hoped to earn a win on the Bulldogs' home floor. However, it was Pasadena that came out fired up for the rematch and in the end, it wasn't even close.

LA CRESCENTA — Sidney Ortega had plenty on her mind when the ball left her finger tips in the waning seconds of overtime. The Burroughs High girls' basketball player wasn't sure what the end result would be after taking arguably her biggest shot thus far this season. Ortega got the positive result she wanted, as she made a game-winning three-pointer with 2.6 seconds remaining in overtime to lift visiting Burroughs to a 49-46 Pacific League victory against Crescenta Valley on Monday.

BURBANK - In recent years, the matchup between the Crescenta Valley High and Burroughs boys' soccer teams seems to bring out the best in both squads. It was no different Monday, as the Falcons and Indians faced one another for the second time this season. It was a spirited battle throughout, with both teams enjoying their share of scoring chances over the course of the first 75 minutes. But despite the opportunities, neither squad could put the ball in the back of the net. That changed, however, in the 76th minute when Burroughs' Brandon Gerlach scored a goal to break a scoreless deadlock.
