A pair of young tennis players from Regina, Teah Rice and Keegan Rice, continue to find new ways to put Saskatchewan tennis on the map.
In case you missed it, Teah won a J3 ITF in Quebec City back in September.
She followed that brilliant performance by qualifying for the main draw of the Calgary National Bank Challenger in November. She played a hard fought match against Mexico’s Ana Sofia Sanchez in the first round, winning the first set 6-1 before dropping the next two sets 6-3, 7-6. Sanchez went on to reach the quarter-finals.
After Calgary, Teah spent a lot of November in Mexico as she reached the second round at both the J1 Guadalajara and JA Merida.
From there, Teah took her talents to Florida and lost in the first round of the JI Bradenton before bouncing back and making it to the third round of the JA Plantation just over a week ago.
It’s also been a memorable winter for Keegan. He made it to the second round at the J1 Guadalajara and JA Merida events in Mexico, as well as the second round at the JI Bradenton. Keegan was also at the JA Plantation and fell short in the opening round.
Tennis Saskatchewan would like to congratulate Teah and Keegan on their success and we look forward to seeing what they accomplish next.
