The Burbank High and Burroughs girls' tennis teams experienced different results in the Pacific League last season.
Behind a balanced lineup, the Bulldogs were competitive in league and finished second behind champion Arcadia. The Indians, on the other hand, struggled and finished second to last in league.
Leading into the 2013 season, it looks like last year's trends are continuing with the two local teams.
Although Burbank lost some key seniors to graduation, the Bulldogs have a strong group of returners that coach Loi Phan expects to contend for the league championship.
Things are different for Burroughs, which lost a crop of seniors. Coach Roy Bernhardt said he is hoping his squad will at least be able to be competitive and that reaching the postseason might be a stretch for the Indians.
Here is a closer look at how the teams are shaping up.
Coming off a season in which they went 13-3, the biggest lost to the Bulldogs was the graduation of Ashley Basco. Basco played singles for most of the season a year ago and teamed with Meredy Gharabegi to play doubles for the league tournament and the postseason.
