In the doubles Semifinals today Jody Maginley and his doubles partner Alex Rybakov (USA) took down Shakir Elvin and Matthew Hutchinson(BAR) in straight sets 6-4, 6-3 advancing them to the doubles finals.

As the Coco Cola LCA Jr. Tournament draws to a close the Antiguan team moves on to SVG ITF jr. tournament. With one more potential success tomorrow at the St. Lucia tournament, we congratulate all the Antiguan athletes who showed promise in their quest for the under 14 and under 18 singles and doubles titles at this ITF tournament,

Cordell Williams jr  - u14 singles consolation winner

Jessica Issac - u14 singles finalist and doubles winner

D'Jeri Raymond - u18 doubles quarterfinalist

Shakir Elvin - u18 doubles semifinalist

Jody Maginley -    awaiting results of the doubles finals.

None of this would have been possible without the support of the sponsors - primarily NOC National Olympic Committee and the parents of these athletes.
