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.
