Sixteen-year-old Team USA member Casey Wong joins Sedky and Leonard in the quarters following an 11-3, 12-10, 12-10 victory over Mexican Luz Sarahi Lopez Dominguez.
The BU17 quarterfinals will feature four Americans. Sam Scherl and Spencer Lovejoy will face off, guaranteeing at least one American semifinalist. Connecticut-natives David Yacobucci and Harrison Gill will also vie for a spot in Monday’s semifinals.
Japanese GU17 top seed Satomi Watanabe is still on track to reach the final without dropping a game in the tournament thus far, but must first get past American Grace Doyle in the quarterfinals Monday. Watanabe is seeded to face second-seeded American Eleonore Evans in the final, who won her round of sixteen match in four games.
Americans Sumrin Mudgil of Pennsylvania and Helen Teegan of Washington set up a quarterfinal match up after both players won their round of sixteen match in three games.
