Led by 2016 JR WPH Coach of the Year Richie “Drft” Fernandez, the Juarez juniors stole the show with sensational play and enthusiasm for the sport. “There have never been four junior divisions in any tournament in Juarez or El Paso so it was just awesome,” stated Coach Fernandez. “There were a lot of close games and tiebreakers.”
