PASADENA — Burroughs and Burbank highs will be represented in the Pacific League semifinals in boys' tennis.
Both the Indians and Bulldogs players earned the right to advance to the final day of league competition with fine performances in Monday's preliminaries at Pasadena High.
Two doubles teams and a singles player from Burroughs and a doubles squad and singles athlete from Burbank will take part in the event at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the same venue.
There is a guarantee that the locals will be represented in the finals, as two Indians doubles squads will go head to head in one semifinal Wednesday.
As expected, the Burroughs team of Kevin Hoang and Wen Yao Lin, seeded No. 1, breezed through its first two matches Monday. In the first round, the two dispatched No. 16 Gary Voskanian and Evan Keum of Hoover, 6-1, 6-0, before defeating No. 9 Robert Lee and James Ho of Crescenta Valley, 6-1-6-1. Last season, Hoang teamed up with Phillip Lam to capture the doubles title.
