The No. 4-seeded Harutyunyan defeated Annie Tung of Arcadia, 8-3, in a quarterfinal match to earn her second straight trip to the semifinals.
She will meet top-seeded Nadia Pacheco of Arcadia in a semifinal match at 1 p.m. today at Pasadena High.
“She played well, like she usually does in the first two rounds,” Burbank Coach Loi Phan said of Harutyunyan. “I think she’s got a legitimate shot at winning singles. She gets the No. 1 seed, who beat her twice. Hopefully, Tatevik can get over the hump on the second day.”
In a first-round match Monday, Harutyunyan defeated 13th-seeded Sarah Whang of Crescenta Valley, 8-0. She kept that momentum going into the second round, where she beat Tung.
Bulldogs who also had good first rounds were fifth-seeded Sun-Mo Koo, who defeated 12th-seeded Tatevik Hovhannisyan of Glendale, 8-0, and seventh-seeded Julie Kim, who defeated Zar Chavdarian of Hoover, 8-0. Unfortunately, both lost in the second round.
Also in the first round, 15th-seeded Jessica Park of Burroughs lost to second-seeded Francis Dean of Arcadia, 8-0, and teammate Stacey Frederick, the 11th seed, lost to Tung, 8-0
In the first round of doubles, fourth-seeded Alice Karaian and Ashley Basco of Burbank defeated 13th-seeded Nicole Astorian and Eugenia Bagdassarian of Glendale, 8-2. The Bulldogs’ duo fell in the second round to fifth-seeded Amy Qui and Nicole Gandasutisna of Arcadia, 8-2.
Kendall Capshaw and Jennifer Aproux, the 10th seed from Burroughs, also advanced to the second round by beating seventh-seeded Alice Kim and Tu Tram Nguyen of Arcadia, 8-3. The Indians’ pair fell in the second round to second-seeded Audri Pardo and Ani Ebrahimian of Crescenta Valley, 8-2.
Also in first-round doubles play, 12th-seeded Saniya Ibrahim and Emily Yun of Burbank lost to Qui and Gandasutisna, 8-5, and the eighth-seeded Bulldogs team of Ayesha Ibrahim and Allison Scallon lost to ninth-seeded Tenny Soleymani and Viktoriya Shumakova of Crescenta Valley, 8-4.
