This season's CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs have led the Burroughs High boys' tennis team to a familiar place against a familiar opponent.
For the second-straight year, the Indians will travel to Palm Desert to take on the No. 1-seeded Aztecs in a semifinal contest. The teams will take to the court at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Burroughs will be looking to avenge a 14-4 loss at the hands of Palm Desert in the 2011 semifinal. The Aztecs went on to capture the division championship.
To knock off Palm Desert, however, the Indians will likely have to get through a lineup that is chalk full of talent in singles as well as doubles. In the playoffs thus far, the three Aztecs doubles corps have a combined 27-0 record.
Leading that doubles group is the team of Jack Felish and Austin Rapp, which notched 6-0, 6-0, 6-1 wins against Arroyo Grande in the quarterfinals. The duo also won the Desert Valley League championship. The team also has accomplished doubles squads in Cameron McDonald and Austin Graham and John Kimmes and Matt Leggat.
