Sixteen-year-old Victoria Arjoon regrouped from her Tuesday night loss to Steven Xavier with a resounding straight-game win against Ashley DeGroot on night two of the Toucan Industries Kool Aid Junior Skill Level Tournament at the Georgetown Club on Wednesday night.
Arjoon, who attends St George’s School in Kingston Rhode Island, prevailed in three close games (11/9, 11/9, 11/7) against DeGroot, who was the 2012 runner up in the under-19 category of the Caribbean championships. Arjoon, who is a four-time junior Caribbean champion, is currently in Guyana on vacation from school, but is training to represent Guyana at the Caribbean championships again this year.
Xavier completed his second win of the tournament from an entertaining contest against 2012 Caribbean under-19 champion Mary Fung-A-Fat. Xavier prevailed 11/6, 11/9, 11/7, while Nyron Joseph took apart Benjamin Mekdeci with a plethora of powerful drives in the other category A encounter. Joseph, who is also the Caribbean under 17 champion, also has two wins to his credit in category A.
Rebecca Low, who was defeated by Alexander Cheeks on opening night, savoured some revenge by defeating Cheeks’ older sister Kristina Cheeks in straight games. Taylor Fernandes was also able to withstand a strong challenge from fast improving Avinash Odit. Akeila Wiltshire comfortably defeated Andrew Peroune, while younger brother Shomari Wiltshire schooled Mahendra Khusial also in straight games. Pablio Mundini was able to prevent a Wiltshire hat trick of wins on night two, by defeating Larissa Wiltshire 11/7, 14/12, 11/6.
