 Congratulations to Lily Zhang, Women’s 2013 ITTF-North American Cup Champion!

There is a well-earned sense of pride and accomplishment emanating from Northern California after this weekend’s competition at the 2013, ITTF-North American Cup, held in Westchester, NY. Credit Lily Zhang and Timothy Wang for creating the “buzz” by representing their US Team and their ICC/STIGA club team with stellar play and exemplary results. Lily Zhang, the event’s second seed, was crowned the ITTF-North American Cup Women’s Champion while her ICC/STIGA club teammate, Timothy Wang, finished in the men’s runner-up position, losing 2-4 in a epic, back and forth battle against Canada’s Andre Ho.

By winning the women’s title, Lily qualifies to compete in the STARTS Women’s World Cup in Kobe, Japan scheduled for September 21 – 23. Asked how she felt, Lily said, “Definitely feel good. I played well and kept myself calm. Tried not to think ahead and just stay in the present.” *

Congratulations to both ICC/STIGA team players Lily Zhang and Timothy Wang for their great results at the ITTF-North American Cup and for their continued dedication and leadership on and off the table.
