I must admit that I became a little bit nervous when she lost a terrible game to Sophie Morris-Suzuki in the sixth round, but she righted the ship, winning her next two games and managing a draw in the last round against Jennifer Yu to take the title and $3,000, I believe Carissa is the first girl from Massachusetts to win the US Girls' Junior Championship.
