– The junior division stole the show in the opening session
of Thursday’s competition at the National PAL Championships,
which showcased quarterfinal action in the junior and female
divisions at the Municipal Auditorium in San Antonio, Texas.
The 11 and 12-year-old division made its first appearance in
San Antonio with seven bouts in the junior competition.
After the youngest participants kicked off the day’s action,
the intermediate division (13-14-year-old) contestants
stepped into the ring for 10 bouts of competition.

the junior division action with all of the victors moving on

(Baltimore, Md.) in their flyweight quarterfinal
showdown. Lightweight Stephanie Han (El Paso, Texas)
enjoyed the upset of the day, taking a 15-7 decision over
2009 National Champion Patricia Manuel (Long Beach,
