The eleven young men and women representing the United States in the 2015 World Junior Championships in Eindhoven, Holland, have been announced.
The 2015 World Junior Championships commence with the annual men’s and women’s World Junior Individual Championships July 26-30, followed by the biennial women’s World Junior Team Championship July 31-August 4.
The past two editions of the women’s World Junior Team Championships in 2011 and 2013 saw the U.S. contingents record their best finishes on the world junior stage—second place.
Led by Head Coach Scott Devoy and Assistant Coach Lynn Leong, Team USA’s Sabrina Sobhy, Reeham Sedky, Kayley Leonard, and Casey Wong will aim to deny favourites Egypt a fifth consecutive title. Hayley Scott and Eleanor Evans also join the women’s fold and will compete in the individual competition.
“We have an experienced group with Sabrina, Reeham, Kayley and Casey having all competed in at least one world junior event,” Devoy said.
“With strong second place finishes in the past two team events, we will be looking to emulate those results. Other countries will be stronger than previous years, but a top four result is something that is a realistic opportunity. Individually, we are looking for each girl to improve on previous results.”
