Knox, Arnold claim doubles crown

MT. VERNON — The duo of Jade Knox and Nathan Arnold won the Jefferson County Mixed Doubles Tournament title on Wednesday in Veterans Park.

They were real strong, strong groundstrokes,” Randy Knox, who coaches the Mt. Vernon boys and girls high school teams, said. “Both (were) aggressive at the net. Both played smart, fundamental tennis.”

The two beat the team of Catie Raney and Nathan Arnold 6-4, 7-6 (9-7) in the championship.

Both those (championship) teams are very talented,” Randy Knox said.

Knox and Arnold received a bye in the opening round. The two beat Jeremiah Frank and Rebecca Bradley in the second round 6-0, 6-1. Knox and Arnold then teamed to beat Shubhika Jain and Dalton McGowen in the semifinal 6-3, 6-2.

A total of 10 teams competed in the event, which started Wednesday morning.

It's a tournament that the guys and girls really enjoy playing in,” Randy Knox said. “It is different from the regular tennis season where the guys always are playing the guys and girls always playing the girls. They have a lot of fun with the matches.”

McGowen and Jain beat Dalton Barnes and Anessa Montgomery for third place 10-4. Amanda Scott and Javier James claimed fifth place with a 10-2 victory over the team of Dylan Dalsanto and Priyanka Kaushal.

Summer tennis action continues on Saturday with a singles and doubles tournament before the junior tennis playoffs start in Olney on Monday.
