Team Sask made a good start at the Youth Nationals as our girls’ doubles teams both placed joint third on opening day.
Two sets of sisters trod the podium: Megan Lyons and Aspen Cleaveley in Seniors and Brittany Lyons and Miranda Cleaveley in Juniors. The Lyons girls are from Nipawin and the Cleaveleys hail from Hudson Bay.
Later that evening, Austin Morrison came second in the bursary shoot.
Megan and Brittany Lyons both reached the last eight in girls’ singles. Great job!
Also representing us this year were Senior Boy Mitch Kavanagh and Junior Boy Saul Arndt.
Youth director Trish Gray says she has been super impressed by the whole team’s attitude. “I cannot say enough about how proud I was to be associated with all these terrific youth players,” says Trish. “I was especially pleased with the senior members of the team who stepped up, without being asked, to mentor and be leaders for the young players.”
Trish gives the shout out to Hunch, Ken and Laurie, the coaching staff, and Dan and Becky, the parents. “All your hard work did not go unnoticed. Thanks!”
