Carter Mills had already qualified for the 14U Tour Championship next weekend, but it never hurts to prepare in style. Much like the pros at New Haven, he tweaked his game in the last week leading up to the major and came away with another title.

More important may be confidence and hot play heading into the Tour Championship. Mills had to defeat the No. 1 ranked player on tour, Jon Ozenci, to capture the Sweet Spotter Cup championship, 4-2, 4-2.

Shed no tears for Ozenci, however. He has multiple options to compete and with his finals performance regained the No. 1 position in the 16U rankings over Solomon Ravitz, who he had trailed by eleven points before the Sweet Spotter Cup. He'd already held No. 1 in 14U and 18U and now is consolidating his holdings.

Zander Abramson emerged the victor after coming back from a set down to capture a tight tiebreak against Zachary Mills 1-4, 4-1, 10-8. That coupled with his default win to make Abramson 2-0 and the champion. But Kidd was able to oust Mills for second place, 4-2, 4-1. It would have been chaos had the last tiebreak points gone Mills' way.

One interesting note from the weekend---Zachary Mills, a Junior Circuit tournament champion in the past, may have endured a heart-wrenching loss. But the five points he earned in competing at the 12U level means he debuts on that tour at 22nd.

Not only that, but he improved enough in the 10U rankings to earn an invitation as an alternate to the Tour Championship, which he has converted.

Tour Championship tickets have been punched. Players are listed where they have qualified, but some changes in age division will be made for those who have aged out of their group, as well as next-qualified players added in place of those with injuries.
