Boissevain’s Natasha Armstrong had her hands full at the Canada vs. U.S. Duels in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Saturday.
The Brandon Boxing Club member fell 3-0 to Caitlin Orosco in their 51-kilogram youth bout that capped the week-long training camp for Canada’s and the United States’ best amateur boxers at the American training facility.
Orosco is the Continental champion and won a gold medal as a junior at last year’s International Boxing Association women’s junior and youth championship in Bulgaria.
Only two of the nine Canadians managed to beat their American counterparts.
