Crescenta Valley earned a 108-19 win against Hoover and a 93-34 victory against Burbank in the boys' competition, which also saw Burbank post a 79-43 win against Hoover. The Falcons won 11 of the meet's 16 events.
In the girls' competition, Crescenta Valley recorded a 100-17 win against Burbank and a 93-34 victory against Hoover. Burbank registered a 68-49 win against Hoover. Crescenta Valley captured 10 events.
Though Burbank Coach Darin Wolf saw his team finish second in each competition, he'd rather face neighboring schools.
"I've wanted this for years," Wolf said. "It didn't make sense for us to go [to the Santa Clarita Valley and compete against those schools].
"It's a long drive up there and different demographics."
Wolf's teams still had to deal with Crescenta Valley's juggernaut of talented distance runners.
Mike Sheridan captured two events for the Falcons (5-2, 5-1 in league). He won the 800-meter race in 2 minutes 4.5 seconds and then captured the 1,600 (4:33.8). He also ran a winning lap when he teamed with Dylan Montes, Gabe Ramirez and T.C. Corliss to win the 4x400 relay (3:39.70).

Harold Tabora of Hoover (0-4, 0-4) finished first in the 400 (51.83). Crescenta Valley's John Loomis took first in the 100 (10.88).
