St. Lucian Tennis Players into ITF Regional Semifinals
The Rounds are looking more exciting now for the Barbados ITF Tennis Tournament with three St Lucians advancing to the Semi Finals stage of the singles tournament.  Megan William continues on her winning streak when she held down Grenadian Kay Lee Hazzard 6:3; 6:1 to advance to the semi-finals when she will face Jenna Harrison of Jamaica to hopefully  advance to the finals.
