Claremore’s Cox earns Tulsa World All-Metro girls tennis honors

CLAREMORE — Tenacious on the hardwood, Claremore senior Kaleigh Cox is just as aggressive on the tennis court.

Cox’s competitive spirit throughout the spring tennis season earned Claremore’s talented singles player a spot on the Tulsa World All-Metro honorable mention squad.

This past season, Cox sparked the Lady Zebras to the Class 5A State Tennis Tournament in Oklahoma City, and finished seventh overall in No. 2 girls singles.

Along with Cox, the Lady Zebras garnered an 11th-place finish in the 5A state tournament.

Cox was the lone representative from Rogers County on the Tulsa World All-Metro Girls Tennis team.

The first-team recipients were the following tennis players:

* Lauren Pickens, a junior from Owasso who finished second in Class 6A girls singles.

* Mariah Burke, a senior from Jenks who finished fourth in Class 6A girls singles.

* Jenny Bond, a sophomore from Jenks who finished first in Class 6A girls singles.

* Piper Huey and McKinleigh Lair, a senior and sophomore from Jenks who placed first in Class 6A girls doubles.

* Easton Parker and Alexi Lucas, a junior and sophomore from Bixby who placed second in Class 6A girls doubles.

Bishop Kelley junior Madison Westby was named the Tulsa World All-Metro Girls Tennis Player of the Year after placing first overall in girls singles at the Class 6A State Tournament.

Jenks’ Ron Acebo was tabbed the Tulsa World All-Metro Girls Tennis Coach of the Year.

Acebo helped guide the Jenks Lady Trojans to their second-straight Class 6A state championship in the past three years.

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
