On July 26th through the 2nd of August, Angela and Chris took Christina Le, Nick Mulflur, Anna Becker, Sam Stephenson, Valerie Frank, and Katie Lorish, to Los Angeles to play in the Lakewood Junior Open Tournament. The players got a taste of the Southern California heat, as well as the heat of the competition! Additionally, in later rounds of the tournament some of the LTA players encountered competitors who were visiting from Hong Kong. This gave the players an opportunity to challenge themselves not only against players from a different state, but players from a different continent. After the tournament ended, the players went to Knott’s Berry Farm to relax and have some fun. At the end of the trip, the LTA players returned to PDX with great new experiences and fond memories.
