The 18 girls singles capped the day, with Hayley Kent winning 28 games to take the nine-girl bracket. Katie Hammitt’s 21 games won was good for second, and she also won the 15 girls singles title (26 games won) and teamed with Zach Healy to take second in the 15 mixed doubles; their 8 games won was three behind winners Erin Vits and KC Knack.

In the other bracket postponed from Tuesday, Lucas Healy won 15 games to top runner-up Dillon Nitz (10) in 11 boys singles play.
