Darren Yang, Annie Xu Won 2 Titles for U19, Lauren Lam Achieves Triple Crown in U13 2015 US Junior Nationals

New champions emerged from the 2015 US Junior Nationals held at the ClearOne Badminton Center in Orlando, Florida from June 29–July 5.

Darren Yang of Boston Badminton stormed into all three finals of the U19 categories and took two golds (XD with Victoria Chen of Seattle Badminton Club and MD with Alexander La of Bellevue Badminton Club) and one silver, losing to last year’s double’s champion, Philip Jap of Global Badminton Academy.

Last year’s U19 WD champion Annie Xu of Bay Badminton Center won two golds, repeating her double’s title and single’s title and even beating her twin sister, Kerry Xu. Annie Xu went through three 3-set matches before entering the final. Along the way she beat defending champion Crystal Pan of United Badminton Club in one of the longest matches of the entire tournament.

Other than the U19 category, Lauren Lam of Bintang Badminton Academy had a tremendous week winning all the matches she played to achieve a triple crown in U13. Lam played with Nicole Ju of Z Badminton Training Center for Women’s Doubles and Don Averia of Synergy Badminton Academy for Mixed Doubles.

Next month junior players who are qualified in the Junior International Trial (held back in April) will be heading to Tijuana, Mexico for the Junior Pan Am Championships, August 2 to 9.
