BURBANK — With dual-meet supremacy already in their back pockets, the Crescenta Valley High girls' and boys' swimming teams reaffirmed their dominance of the Pacific League championship meet, clinching outright titles at Burbank High on Thursday.
It marked the 20th straight league crown for the boys, while the girls' team has now strung together five in a row.
"We talked about that before the meet, that it was the 20th one, and just showing respect for the athletes who have come before and been part of that whole legacy," Crescenta Valley boys' Coach Jan Sakonju said.
While the Falcons girls' team (503 points) ended up with a comfortable margin over runner-up Pasadena (402.5), the Bulldogs stayed in the hunt, trailing by just 70 with four events to go. But Iva Icheva's two individual wins, a pair of relay titles and overall superior depth were enough to hold off the challenge.
