“With Kristina not being able to play, I had to shift some players into other spots,” Burbank coach Loi Phan said. “I had five freshmen out there playing today.

“They were a solid team. I think if we would have Kristina it would have been closer than it was. But our team played the best that they could.”

Johana Faraj won two sets in singles, 6-2, 6-3, for the Bulldogs.

South Torrance (12-2) is the Pioneer League champion.
