Burroughs senior Emily Tubert looks to capture her second league title (Raul Roa/The Leader).

Burroughs High girls’ golfer Emily Tubert has gotten the lion’s share of publicity pertaining to the Indians’ team the last two seasons.

And rightly so. The senior is the reigning Pacific League champion, was a Junior All-American and All-Area Player of the Year in 2008 and has qualified for the CIF Southern Section postseason her last three seasons.

But quietly over two seasons, sophomore Ravipa Losakul has become a successful golfer in her own right.

Tubert and Losakul finished 1-2, respectively, Wednesday in the Pacific League preliminaries at Hansen Dam Golf Course.

The two will join 17 other athletes — four from Burroughs and three from Burbank — in the league finals Tuesday at Harding Golf Course.

In the team standings, Arcadia won the league championship. The Indians placed second and the Bulldogs were third. The three teams qualified to play Nov. 5 in the Central Team Divisionals at the Jurupa Hills Country Club in Riverside County.

The scores from the prelims will be added to Tuesday’s final round.
