BURROUGHS HIGH — The cross-town rivalry girls’ tennis match Thursday between Burbank High and Burroughs reminded Indians Coach Roy Bernhardt of the past.
“Yeah, it kind of reminds me of the days when we used to get killed by the Burbank boys’ team,” he said. “Sometimes we were just hoping to get one win to avoid the shutout.”
The Indians were able to avoid the shutout — but just barely.
The Bulldogs swept all nine singles sets and were able to breeze to a 17-1 Pacific League victory at Burroughs.
Two matches into league, Burbank (3-0, 2-0 in league) is tied for first place with Arcadia, which defeated Crescenta Valley, 15-3, on Thursday.
Although the Bulldogs are undefeated, they haven’t faced much competition thus far. They defeated Glendale, 17-1, Tuesday in their league opener and had no trouble getting by Flintridge Prep, 15-3, last week. In all three contests, Burbank hasn’t surrendered a set in singles.
