Girls Tennis: Londonderry's Burbine repeats as MVP

Londonderry’s Cassie Burbine enjoyed another brilliant season to repeat as Eagle-Tribune MVP.

She became the second area girl in the tourney’s 48-year history to capture the New Hampshire singles title. In the finals, she avenged a regular-season loss to Manchester Central’s Julia Chappell.

Burbine, who will play at Assumption College, teamed with Ana Milosavljevic to reach the finals in the doubles. Last year she and Amanda DePasquale were the first local duo (boys and girls) to win the doubles.

“She had a knee injury halfway through this season,” said coach Tom Meighan. “It was a tendon issue but she was able to play through it and wore a knee brace. She’s definitely improved this year. Her serve definitely got better and her consistency was outstanding.”

Burbine, a four-time Eagle-Tribune All-Star, joined her older brother Alex as a two-time MVP.
