At the end of day three, Antigua & Barbuda remains on target to cap three of the six trophies up for grabs at this year?s ITF U13 Caribbean Development Championship being hosted at the Eddie Taylor Courts in Trinidad & Tobago.
Antigua & Barbuda opened play with Chassidy King dispatching Rayven Barry of The Bahamas, 6-0, 6-0, to move in to the semi-final round in defence of her singles title won last year.
Compatriot Zhane Potter came face to face with Trinidad and Tobago?s Kezia Koroma who defeated her 1-6, 3-6, and will play for a fifth place position against Julia D?Auvergne of St Lucia.
Shakir Elvin lost his match to Joel Lutchman of Suriname, 3-6, 1-6. He will also play for a 5th place spot.
?Elvin had a tough game today,? said team assistant coach, Wesley Francis. ?Our only medal hope in the girls singles, Chassidy, is on her way to the finals.?
In the consolation draw, Edward Buckley lost to Imani King of St Vincent and the Grenadines in what could only be described as a battle, 3-6, 2-6. Buckley will now play for a fifth place position.
The girls, Potter and King, began their defence of the doubles title by easily beating the pair of Elle Abraham of USVI and Nicola Ramdyhan of Guyana.
Elvin and Buckley are fighting for the boys? semi-finals doubles honours. They defeated the team of Brian Freiburghouse and Jordan Lawrence from the USVI, 6-1, 6-1.
King moves into the semi-finals against the Championship?s No 2 ranked Tyler Smith of Bermuda.
?Everybody is in good spirits, and hopefully tomorrow, we will have a good day again,? said Francis.
The tournament ends on Saturday.
