U.S. Junior Championship 2017 / Plus U.S. Girl’s – Round 8

 

 

This was the Penultimate round of both Junior Championships and the standings haven’t changed all that much since last round.  

Kayden Troff and Awonder Liag are still at the top of the stack with a half point difference between them.

Akshita Gorti maintains her lead from the pack by a full point and half.   Obviously she wins the Girl’s Junior Championship (win/loss/draw).   Congratulations !
