PAWTUCKET — Westerly High’s Michaela Burr beat an All-State player in the second round of singles play at the state tournament in Slater Park on Friday. She had won her opening match earlier in the day.

The undefeated freshman (16-0) is seeded first among Division II players and fifth overall.

She beat Lincoln School’s Jamie Pine 6-3, 6-3 in the second round. Pine is the top Lincoln player as a junior and earned first-team All-State honors last year. She was seeded fifth among the 16 Division I players that qualified.

Burr won 6-2, 6-0 in the opening round against Patty Gauthier, who is the No. 2 singles player for Bay View Academy, and the 16th seed among the qualifying Division I players.

Burr advanced to the quarterfinal round that will be played at 11 a.m. today at Slater Park. The semifinals will follow. The finals will be held at noon on Sunday.

Lani Kopperman was the other Westerly singles player that qualified. She was the sixth seed among Divison II players in the tournament.

Kopperman (14-2) lost 6-0, 6-0 in the opening round to Peri Sheinin, the No. 2 singles player for East Greenwich and the sixth seed among the Division I players.

Westerly’s Renee Cordio and Emily Palma (12-2) will team to play in doubles starting at 9 a.m. today in Slater Park.

They will play Cristina Marsocci and Gabby Federici in the opening round.

Cordio and Palmer are the No. 1 doubles pair for Westerly and are seeded third among the Division II doubles players in the tournament. Marsocci and Federici are the top duo for Bay View Academy and are seeded fourth among the Division I doubles.
