Over two weekends in January, junior players from across Middle States gathered at various locations with one goal: be crowned a Middle States champ.
The Middle States Level 3 Section Championships took place the weekends of January 9 and 16, bringing together some of the Section’s top talent in each respective age group.
Each individual championship consisted of a 32-player draw in the boys’ and girls’ 12s, 14s, 16s and 18s. The doubles championships featured a 16-team draw.
