Whether she’s on the court, on the course or in the classroom, Los Altos High’s Carina Burdick finds a way to shine. That combination of success as a tennis player, golfer and student has earned the newly graduated senior a scholar-athlete award from the California Interscholastic Federation.
After winning a Central Coast Section tennis title in the fall and helping the Eagles’ golf team make the postseason in the spring, Burdick last month received a CIF/Farmers Scholar-Athlete scholarship award. Only 20 of the 400 seniors who applied received a $2,000 scholarship from the CIF, which governs the state’s high school sports. Burdick was one of two recipients from the CCS.
