Day one of elimination at World Junior Championships - Girl's Divisions

In general, the higher seeds won on the first day of elimination in the girl's competition at the 26th International Racquetball Federation (IRF) World Junior Racquetball Championships in Cali, Colombia on Wednesday.

Only Maria Jose Muñoz of Ecuador was an upset winner, as she defeated Rodaliza Perdomo of the Dominican Republic, 10-15, 15-10, 11-2, in the Girl's U14 division. Muñoz will play Mexican Ana Laura Flores in the quarterfinals Thursday, as Flores defeated American Hannah Carver, 15-1, 15-1, on Wednesday.

Canadians Michèle Morissette and Danielle Drury had a dramatic tie-breaker win over Bolvians Claudia Anaya and Patricia Mendizbal in U18 doubles, winning 15-11, 13-15, 11-8. They'll play 2nd seeds Gabriela Martinez and Maria Renee Rodriguez of Guatemala on Thursday in the semi-finals after the Guatemalans defeated Hondurans Paula Padilla and Lissel Padilla, 15-5, 15-1 Wednesday.

Finally, Indian Amita Gondi won on Wednesday, beating Ecuador's Ivana Sempertegui, 15-13, 15-7, so she'll play top seed Monserrat Mejia of Mexico in the quarterfinals Thursday, and if she wins, she'll get the first medal for an Asian country at the IRT World Junior Championships.

However, she has her work cut out for her against the top seed, as Mejia beat Frances Vazquez of Puerto Rico, 15-1, 15-4, Wednesday.

The elimination round continues Thursday with the semi-finals on Friday and finals on Saturday. There will be live streaming of the semi-finals and finals from Cali via the IRF Network for free.
