Capital Region Championships – Level 1 – Update

Results from the Capital Region Championships – Level 1 Junior Tournament. The tournament is being held over two weekends. After this weekend we continue on the weekend of April 8-10. The Boys 10’s, 12’s, 14’s and 16’s play this weekend, while the Girls events and the Boy’s 18’s play the second weekend. Today, Saturday, we crowned out first winner – Max Benson of Albany. Max won by defeating Anjor Tripathi of Piscataway, NY 6-1, 6-0.  Anjor had gotten to the finals by beating Connors O’Brien of Rensselaer by a score of 6-3, 6-2. The boys doubles were also crowned today. Anjor teamed with Ronan Jachuck of Slingerlands to win 4-2, 4-1. Doubles were played as best of three sets to 4 match instead of an eight game pro set to give the event more of a tennis feel.  In the Boys 16 Doubles final Artem Khrapco (Corning, NY) and Mwendwa Mbithi(Succasunna,NJ) defeated James Aronson and Thomas Glading of Waccabuc, NY 5-3, 4-0.  Thomas and James play together on the same high school team – John Jay High School – which is a perennial powerhouse.   ( The remaining matches will be played tomorrow with Boys 10 singles, Boys 14 singles and Boys 16 singles up for grabs. Boys 14 doubles  will also be decdied tomorrow. Watch for updates. For complete results – CLICK HERE
