Guam- The 2011 North Pacific Qualifiers are well underway!
64 junior tennis players from our region began match play this morning at the Hagatna and Tiyan Tennis Courts. At stake are spots on the travelling team to Fiji for the Pacific Oceania Junior Championships in August. Players from Guam, CNMI, FSM, and Palau will combine to form the North Pacific Team and compete against the East and West Teams.
Leading Guam ‘s team is coach Joe Cepeda, who oversees a contingent of 17 boys and 7 girls. Although this year’s Guam team includes only two returnees from last year — Joshua Cepeda and Derek Okuhama, the rest of the players are no stranger to local tournament action.
