MISSISSIPPI RALLIES TO WIN JUNIOR RIVER CUP

September 14, Greenwood, Mississippi -

 

It was an exciting finish Sunday at the 2014 Junior River Cup. Team Louisiana had a two point lead entering the final day of competition, but with 60 points on the line in the 20 singles matches, no lead was safe. Both teams came out strong. The 16-18 year old boys division was the first group of competitors to tee off, and they helped Louisiana increase their lead with two resounding wins and two hard fought ties, as they captured 8.5 points to Mississippi's 3.5. Mississippi bounced back in the other divisions and the overall points total became increasingly close.
