GIRLS’ TENNIS

Burbank 13, Burroughs 5: The visiting Bulldogs completed a Pacific League season sweep of the Indians on Thursday.

Burbank received a sweep from its No. 1 singles player Kristina Kirakosyan and a sweep from the No. 2 doubles pair Ellie Sumera and Nairi Zeytounzian.

“It’s always a good win against your rival,” Burbank coach Loi Phan said. “The girls came alive. The first round was a lot closer than it looked. It just so happened that we pulled it off in the end there, but if you look at the scores, it was really close.”
