Guyana rebounded well on day three of the 2009 Junior CASA Championships in Barbados, taking home two titles, thanks to Victoria Arjoon and Keisha Jeffrey in the Under-15 and 17 categories respectively.
Arjoon took her third Caribbean title in as many years when she completely outclassed Jessica Perkins of Jamaica in straight games, while Keisha Jeffrey was even more dominant in her 11/6 11/4 11/1 demolition of teammate Ashley Khalil.
Jeffrey displayed excellent court movement, getting to the ball early and hitting with express pace which took Khalil out of her comfort zone and kept her on the defensive. She was fast onto the ball and put it away with clinical efficiency, on her way to a surprisingly easy victory. The Guyanese also took home two plate titles through Gabrielle Fraser and Jason Ray Khalil. But it was in the third place playoffs that the team really stepped up, winning six out of the seven that they were featured in.
Attention now moves to the team championships where Guyana have been seeded #1 in both the boys and girls departments by virtue of being defending champions in both categories.
The boys have been drawn in pool A with the OECS and the Cayman Islands, while the girls are in pool C with Jamaica and Barbados. The boys were down to come up against the Cayman Islands yesterday morning and the Girls were set to battle with the hosts in the afternoon after the official opening ceremony.
