    As USA's B team, Burnham and Robinson defeated the Puerto Rico B team of Dariam Acevedo and Tatiana Encarnación, 21-16, 21-16, in pool play, then swept a team from Dominica in the elimination round, 21-12, 21-14.

    Burnham-Robinson then fell in the quarters, 22-20, 21-12, to Tealle Hunkus and Summer Ross, the USA's A team that went on to win the tourney's gold medal. Burnham is a junior who last spring played in the No. 2 and No. 3 pairs spots on USC's inaugural sand volleyball team, while Robinson is a grad student who was a key member of Pepperdine's national championship team last season.
