In girls singles, ESPC’s Rachel Benn swept her way through the competition to win, defeating Alex Bechard of UCC in the final.

In girls doubles, the lone team from outside ESPC to win a division, was Keeley Taylor Noah and Corinna Van DenBoorn from Ridgetown, who defeated Pain Court’s Raine Avery and Autumn Hamilton in the final.

Cameron Wheeler and Aubrey Michaud of ESPC came back from the losing side of the bracket to defeat Ryan Baker and Natalie Little of JMSS in the mixed doubles championship.

In an all ESPC final, Joseph Zarebski and Dylan Schives eliminated Ryen Stevens and Aidan Lachine in the boys double final.
