Lily and Natalie Main took a jump into the sharks pool on Sunday by competing at Under 17 level at the Leicester Junior Open despite still qualifying for the Under 15 category. It was almost inevitable that they faced each other and this time it was Lily's turn to prevail, after defeat in Ipswich. Lily turned an 8-3 deficit in the first into an 11-8 win, before losing the second, but she wasn't to be derailed as she won 3-1. 3-0 losses followed to club mate Sophia John and highly ranked Lucy Cox from Norfolk, before they both despatched Northamptonshire's Emma Hall by the same score.
The Club's other entrant Sophia John was focused and energetic throughout the day and won all 4 of her matches 3-0. Her opponents were Norfolk’s Lucy Cox who had edged her 3-2 at the East Regional Champs earlier in the month, her club teammates Lily and Natalie Main and Northamptonshire’s Emma Hall.
Their next event is the British National Junior Championships from 31 October to 3rd November.
