2019 IRF World Junior Championships - Sunday Results

Girl’s Singles took center stage on Sunday at the 2019 International Racquetball Federation (IRF) World Junior Racquetball Championships began Saturday in San José, Costa Rica. There were also doubles matches, which we’ll put in a separate post.

There were a few tie-breakers in Girl’s Singles. One in Girl’s U18 had Abigail Solana of Costa Rica defeating Josefina Toro of Chile, 15-4, 7-15, 11-1. There weren’t any tie-breakers in Girl’s U16 with the closest match being Mexican Ximena Martinez’s win over the host country’s Sofia Freer of Costa Rica, 15-10, 15-13.

The closest matches were in Girl’s U14, which had two tie-breakers. In one, Bolivian Natalia Mita narrowly defeated Mexican Angela Ortega, 15-14, 10-15, 11-10, while in the other Costa Rica’s Jimena Gomez and Ireland’s Thea Coleman also played a very close match with Gomez coming out on top, 14-15, 15-13, 11-8.

The Girl’s U18 final will likely be between Bolivians Saturday - Valeria Centellas and Angelica Barrios, who have both impressed on the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) as well as representing Bolivia at senior events, including earning bronze medals in the Women’s Team event at this year’s Pan American Games. Both won their first matches comfortably with Centellas defeating Nikita Chauhan (USA), 15-5, 15-4, and Barrios beating Graciana Wargo (USA), 15-0, 15-1.

Group stage play continues Monday and Tuesday with the medal round beginning on Wednesday. The group stage results will be used to seed players for the medal round.
