Manitobans at 'Little Mo'

Dasha Plekhanova and Reece Carter

When you think of Palm Beach one often thinks vacations. Hold that thought. Now let’s add a tennis tournament and you have the perfect mix of sun, fun, and games.

That may not be what the parents of Reece and Ryan Carter had planned. However, they did return home with some shinny trophies after participating in the Little Mo Internationals, recently held at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Reece won the girls 9's yellow ball doubles with her Canadian partner Dasha Plekhanova for the second year in a row. She also finished 4th overall in a draw of really tough competitors which had players from 32 countries this year.

Ryan, not to be outdone by her older sister, won the girls 8's green consolation. At six years of age, Ryan was the youngest "Mo" at the competition.
