Below are the results she achieved:
– Gold: U18 Girls Singles
– Gold: U18 Mixed Doubles
– Gold: U21 Women’s Singles
– Gold: Women’s Teams
– Silver: U18 Girls Teams
– Bronze: Women’s Doubles
– Quarterfinalist: Women’s Singles
– Silver: Girls Teams
– Bronze: Girls Doubles
– Quarterfinalist: Girls Singles
Her next tournament will be the Canada Cup #1 in Toronto in September. Good luck from the Brit Support Society, Ivy!
The BSS contributed to the Streetfront/Britannia trip over spring break to Patagonia (Southern Chile). The students completed the W-Circuit of the famous Torres del Paine hiking trek. This is the team’s official photo in front of the North, Central, and South towers … with the Bruins wearing their BSS sponsored team jackets. This was the second of the Street2Peak trips- you might remember the first, jackets also sponsored by your society, took our students to Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti in 2015. Photos of both trips can be found on the Street2Peak Facebook and web pages.
