Girls Tennis All-Stars: Another Burbine named MVP

(Continued)

She and Amanda DePasquale are the first area doubles tandem (boys or girls) ever to win a N.H. state title.

The girls tourney began in 1967 and the boys tourney in 1957.

Burbine also advanced to the singles state semis, where she lost to eventual champion Sunday Swett of Bow.

“She’s one of the smartest players I’ve ever coached,” said coach Tom Meighan. “She’s excellent from the baseline and very, very competitive. She doesn’t give up. She always has a gameplan, which is not something you see at this level.”

Her athleticism also shows on the volleyball court. The 5-7 Burbine is a starting setter.

Her brother plays tennis at Division 1 Siena and Cassie is being heavily recruited by Siena and Sacred Heart.
