Team USA Produces Record Sixteen British Junior Open Quarterfinalists

Team USA has made history by producing sixteen British Junior Open quarterfinalists–topping a previous best of fifteen last year–after two days of play in Birmingham, England.

The U.S. contingent enjoyed a strong start to the tournament with thirty-five of fifty-four players reaching the round of sixteen over the first two days of play, January 3-4.

Carter Macdougall (BU11), Henry Urbanek (BU13), Akaisha Bhatia (GU15), Trinity Moshi (GU15), Hart Robertson (BU17) and Avery Park (GU19) all upset higher seeds to reach the round of sixteen in the first round of play Thursday.

Team USA will have quarterfinal representation in all but one division. [9/16] seed Isabella Tang pulled off the highest seeded upset of the day with a four-game round of sixteen win over England’s 3/4 seed Mariam Essa. [9/16] seed Jack Elriani defeated Belgium’s [5/8] seed Maddox Moxham in four games to reach the quarterfinals.
