Youngest player

The youngest player registered - so far - is Alex Canesse from Sarasota, FL. He is the son and nephew of respectively Freddy and Gilles, the often unbeatable brothers-team. Alex turned 16 on July 21, the day before he represented the USA at the Junior Worlds in Longueuil, Canada.
Alex is an excellent student at Cardinal Mooney Junior High in Sarasota, and president of the school's French Club. He also works as a bus boy in an Italian restaurant and intends to study International Trade at FIU.
The picture is from a recent tournament in Boca Raton, FL.

In Miami Alex will team up with Kate Setear. Originally from Ilinois, she is the Secretary of the Sarasota Petanque Club and won the National Mixed Doubles earlier this year with Freddy Canesse.
Alex and Kate, a team combination one would seldom find in other sports: mixed, two generations (let's just say Kate is a tiny bit older than Alex), and French/American.

Good luck to both!
