2017 USA Racquetball Junior Olympics - Saturday summary

Players will have a chance to repeat and to make amends for losses last year Sunday at the 2017 USA Racquetball Junior Olympics at the In-Shape Sport West Lane Club in Stockton, California. Both the Boy's and Girl's U18 2016 champions, Wanye Antone IV and Jordan Cooperrider, respectively, have a chance to repeat as champions. But Akul Ramayani and Briana Jacquet will have a chance to win this year after losing in finals last year.

Ramayani is in both the Boy's U14 and U16 finals. He lost the U14 final last year to Antonio Rojas, and Rojas will be his opponent again in the U14 final. In U16, Ramayani will be up against Sahil Thaker. Ramayani is already a 2017 Junior Champion, as he and Rojas won the Boy's U14 Doubles title together.

For her part, Jacquet lost the U16 final last year (to Ingrid Robledo), but has a chance to win it this year, when she plays Nikita Chauhan on Sunday. Chauhan was the U14 champion last year.

In the Girl's U18 final, Cooperrider will play Hollie Scott, while in Girl's U14, Heather Mahoney will play Annie Roberts in the final.

In Boy's U18, Antone faces Mauro Rojas in the final. Rojas won the Boy's U18 Doubles final with left-hander Lukas Le, as they defeated Ricadro Diaz and Dane Elkins, 13-15, 15-6, 11-8.

The Boy's U16 Doubles title went to Julian Singh and Mitchell Turner, who beat Ben Baron and Micah Farmer, 15-6, 15-9, in the final.
