Team Antigua and Barbuda girls, the Under-12 International Tennis Federation (ITF) Central American and Caribbean Tennis Federation (COTECC) champions’ hope of securing a second consecutive crown on Thursday came to a sudden end.

Both Xaveek Toppin and Jaydon Marcano went under in straight sets.
Toppin was defeated 3-6, 3-6 to Luca Denon while Trinidad’s Jaylon Chapman handed Jaydon Marcano a 2-6, 2-6 trouncing.
