    Burger, a freshman, posted a 5-1 overall record at the LU Invite, going 3-0 in doubles and 2-1 in singles. The Ashton, South Africa native’s first career doubles victory came with junior Alexandra Almborg, a 6-3 decision over East Carolina’s Alisa Diercksen and Martina Muzzolon. Burger topped Diercksen 7-6 (6), 6-0 in singles last Saturday for her first collegiate singles win.

    Sampaio, a freshman, captured her first career singles match on day one of the LU Invite, besting Marshall’s Kara Joseph 7-6 (4), 6-4. The Brasilia, Brazil native picked up her first in doubles with Maria Juliana Parra Romero as her partner on the second day of the tournament. The duo topped Elisa van Meeteren and Kensie Cricchio of William & Mary 6-3.
