In the Girls category, junior ITF veterans Isabella and Katrina Orteza led their team to a 5-0 win-loss record to win the Gold for the third consecutive year.

He added, “I would like to thank all the players for their patience and hard work they put into their training and to the parents for supporting their children. We look forward to defending our titles in next year’s competition.”
