Keegan was narrowly beaten in the final of the Men's Open Singles by Emmett Peixoto from California 21-20, 19-21, 11-7. Despite DIT not winning any singles title they still had enough high placed players in the Men's Open, Men's A and Men's B Singles divisions to bring the Team title home to Ireland.Noel McHugh and Joe McCann from Sligo IT took the Men's Open Doubles title while Padraig Cahill and Conor McGinnity from DIT took the Men's B Doubles title.Well done to all the 21 Irish players who travelled to Missouri tocompete.
