Junior Participation in Fisher Cup

There were many impressive Junior performances in this year's Fisher Cup. Geoffrey Keating (div.5) won division five over Jeff Bede 3-1. Another title winner this year was Jacqueline Barnes of Bethesda who beat Donna Sharpe in the Women's C/D division. Merrit Moore also participated in Division 3, but lost in the first round. Kira Keating participated as well, but lost in the first round. Bryan Keating, playing Premier League, clawed his way to the finals after a victory over Results player Terry Hindermann. Bryan lost to Jake Gross in five in a grueling one hour twenty minute match, a rare sight at these events. The Fisher Cup is a great tournament Juniors can enter if they qualify, so get on court and join the league!
