Top seed Samantha Teran celebrated a Mexican success in the individual final of the Panamerican Squash Championships in Ambato, Ecuador.
Samantha Teran confirmed her status as the best woman player in the region by reaching the other final without dropping a game.
The world No16 from Mexico City's opponent was unheralded Canadian Tara Mullins, who made her breakthrough in the quarter-finals by despatching second seed Silvia Angulo Rugeles, from Colombia. The 32-year-old from Toronto then had a walkover through to the final after the withdrawal of another Colombian Catalina Pelaez.
But Teran was too strong for her opponent in the final, winning 11-4, 11-7, 11-4 to secure the title for the fourth time since 2002.
