Bermuda’s boys tennis team ended their campaign at the Central American and Caribbean Tennis Confederation under-12 tennis tournament in Dominican Republic on a high note, with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Bahamas.

The win against Bahamas saw Bermuda finish second in their group, which was topped by No 1 seed Dominican Republic I. Bermuda had a bye on Friday, the final day of the tournament, but had done well enough not to be overtaken by those who still had outstanding fixtures.

An elated coach Steve Bean praised the youngsters for their fighting spirit.

“Bermuda had a tight one with Bahamas, we ended up winning the doubles,’’ Bean said.

“Well done to Bermuda who fought so hard,” Bean said. “Congratulations to all three team members that have been together, played together and represented Bermuda well this week. I am so proud of these boys.”

Michael Wolffe, the Bermuda Lawn Tennis Association president, was pleased with how things went in the Dominican Republic.

“We certainly all know that Dominican Republic is a powerhouse in junior tennis in the Caribbean,’’ Wolffe said.

“Without a doubt, they are certainly always a team to be reckoned with. For Bermuda to finish second in that group, only losing out to the No 1seed team from Dominican Republic, that is a very good outing for our boys.”

Bermuda started the tournament with a 2-1 win over Puerto Rico before they lost 3-0 against Dominican Republic I. A 3-0 success over Dominican Republic’s second team set the tone for the clash with Bahamas.
