The M.T.T.A. held our second of three sets of tryouts in order to pick Manitoba’s boys and girls teams for the 2023 Canada Winter Games to be held this coming February in Prince Edward Island.
On the girl’s side, Grace Qi was again victorious posting a perfect 3-0 record only dropping 1 game along the way. Spots 2-4 were decided by the tie breaking rules as each of these girls recorded 1 win and 1 loss against each other. In the end, based on I.T.T.F. tie-break rules, Alexus Lee finished second, Samantha Belches 3rd and Victoria Lee fourth. Congratulations to all girls for their hard play.
On the boy’s side, Try-Outs #1 winner Joel Geake of Morden was away at University and did not compete. This opened the door for Jeremy Huang to take top spot where he bested Charles Belches (formerly of Altona now now living in Winnipeg). Owen Hu bested Didie Joyal to take third spot.
The final try-outs will be held on November 5th as part of the Manitoba Closed Championshsips.
