NorCal's Zamarripas complete junior doubles sweep

   Allura and Maribella Zamarripa of Saint Helena in the Napa area on Friday won their second big junior doubles title in two weeks.
   Six days after winning the Easter Bowl girls 16s at Indian Wells, the unseeded Zamarripa twins took the USTA International Spring Championships crown in Carson. They beat fourth-seeded Maryam Ahmad of Albertson, N.Y., and Lina Mohamed of Glen Cove, N.Y., 6-2, 6-4.
   Meanwhile, third-seeded Zachery Lim of Fairfield knocked off top-seeded Spencer Brachman of Commack, N.Y., 6-0, 6-3 to reach the boys 16 final. Lim will meet fifth seed and Easter Bowl runner-up Maxwell McKennon of Newport Beach.
   Third-seeded Natasha Subhash of Fairfax, Va., and Katie Volynets of Walnut Creek advanced to the girls 18 doubles final with a 5-7, 7-6 (5) [13-11] victory over top-seeded Margaryta Bilokin of Ukraine and Elizabeth Mandlik of Delray Beach, Fla.
   The match ended abruptly when Mandlik received a point penalty for throwing her racket, Colette Lewis reported at Zootennis.
   Subhash and Volynets, 16, will face fifth-seeded Georgia Drummy of Ireland and Alexandra Vagramov of Canada.
   Volynets, seeded ninth in singles, lost to Drummy 6-1, 6-4 in the third round after winning the Easter Bowl singles title in the 18s.
