The two navigated the various phases before stopping their foes – Jenna Harrison of Jamaica and Meggan William of St Lucia – in the final.

Humphrey and White prevailed 2-6, 7-5, 10-6 in the championship match.

Also feeling the Vincentians’ weight were Barbadians Kaymar and Chioe Hazzard, who were beaten 6-3, 7-6.

Humphrey and White blew out the efforts of Amelia Dickson of Great Britain and Gabrielle Leslie of Barbados, 6-2, 6-3.

In the singles of the main draw, Humphrey extended her run to the semi-finals, after beating Alesha Henry of Barbados 6-3, 7-5, but succumbed to France’s Isis Lafrontiere of France, 6-2, 6-1.

Humphrey’s sidekick, White, suffered a first round loss to Barbados’ Tangia Riley-Codrington, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.

But, it did not end there for the Vincentians, who then journeyed to the twin-island republic of Trinidad and Tobago, to continue their search for COTEC ranking points.

Humphrey champed the singles in 2014, while the two were the losing finalists in the doubles. The Trinidad and Tobago leg of the circuit ends this weekend.
