BURBANK — The Burbank High girls' tennis team is coming off a season in which it placed second in the Pacific League behind champion Arcadia.
The Bulldogs are definitely focused on contending for a league championship this season, as the program hasn't captured a title since 2002. With a fine crop of returners and a freshman already making an impact, Burbank might be well on its way.
The Bulldogs wanted to maintain that focus Tuesday when they opened Pacific League play against cross-town rival Burroughs. Paced by a dominant singles group, Burbank swept its way to an 18-0 victory against the overmatched Indians.
"The girls are really excited this year and they've been working hard," Burbank High Coach Loi Phan said. "We kinda want to take that next step and be up there for a league title. It's not easy, but the girls have been willing to work hard and they are asking for the conditioning.
