THE TT boys team had a good outing, but the girls team faltered yesterday, on the third day of the ITF/COTECC (International Tennis Federation/Confederation of Tennis of Central America and the Caribbean) Under-12 Team Competition Sub Region 4, at the National Racquet Centre, Tacarigua.
The TT I boys team defeated Barbados 3-0 in Group A and the TT II boys squad had a similar 3-0 victory over Suriname in Group B.
However, the TT II girls team were the recipients of a 3-0 licking from Curacao, in a Group B tie.
In the TT I-Barbados contest, Alexander Merry brushed aside Aidan Clarke 6-2, 6-0 and, in another singles fixture, Zachery Byng whipped Elliot Anthony by a similar 6-2, 6-0 scoreline.
And, in the doubles, the duo of Byng and James Hadden breezed past the pair of Anthony and William MacKenzie 6-1, 6-1.
The TT II boys outfit had a few scares but were able to get the better of Suriname.
