BOYS’ TRACK AND FIELD
Burroughs in Pacific League tri-meet: The Indians kept their league title aspirations alive by defeating both Crescenta Valley and Muir on Wednesday afternoon.
Perhaps the highlight of the meet came when Indians pole vaulter Matt Schwartz set a school record with a vault of 15 feet, which was secured on his second attempt at the height.
“I’m always looking for a personal record and I was actually hoping to get 15-6,” said Schwartz, who bested his previous personal best mark of 14-8.
The win was the second of day for Schwartz, who also captured the high jump (5-10). Burroughs’ Corwin Scherer also was a double winner, taking the 110-meter (16.25) and 300 hurdles (40.39).
