St. George’s, Grenada, 1 June, 2011: Nikita Bowen of Woburn Methodist School and Oronfo Ikolo of St Mary’s Junior School emerged as the leading players in the just-concluded Inter-primary Schools’ Tennis Tournament.

Bowen was the most outstanding female in the 13-and-Under division; in the same division, but among boys, Okolo was the top player.

Bowen won all her singles matches the tournament. In her final two matches in the tournament, she defeated the Beacon Learning Centre’s Jody Anne James 3-1, 3-0 and Aleesha Munro 3-0, 3-0.

In the doubles competition, Bowen also had a clean sweep, teaming up with schoolmate, Selena Alexander.
Ikolo won all his matches except for one in the doubles.  Ikolo and Timani Joseph lost to St George’s Anglican Senior School’s Bjorn Bubb and Michael Frederick 1-2 in a four tie break, 2-0 and 2-1.

St. Mary’s Junior School was the overall champion in the Boys’ Division. Second was St George’s Anglican Senior; third – Alpha Junior; and fourth – Beacon Learning Center.

In the Girls’ Division, Woburn Methodist was first and Beacon Junior was second. Sunnyside Private was third; and St Georges’ Anglican Senior placed fourth.

Tennis coach in the Ministry of Sports, Richard Hughes, described the tournament as successful.
