Truro ten­nis play­ers en­joy suc­cess at Hal­i­fax event

Truro Daily News - - SPORTS - STEPHEN MALLOV Stephen Mallov is mar­ket­ing man­ager of the Cougar Dome.

The Cougar Dome’s group of high per­for­mance ten­nis kids scored some big re­sults in a re­cent 3.5 star At­lantic Ten­nis Al­liance tour­na­ment in Hal­i­fax.

Meghna Anand backed up her re­cent tour­na­ment vic­tory in Jan­uary with an­other strong per­for­mance. She cap­tured two ti­tles in U14 and U16 girls sin­gles, con­tin­u­ing a dom­i­nant year for the Cougar Dome ath­lete. Fel­low Truro player Sofia Gon­za­lez also posted a great per­for­mance, as she cap­tured third place in U14, and reached the U16 semi­fi­nals.

Truro ath­letes also had suc­cess in other events, as the brother-sis­ter tan­dem of Joni and Caden Col­burne ad­vanced deep into mul­ti­ple cat­e­gories. Joni cap­tured back-to-back sec­ond-place fin­ishes, reach­ing the fi­nal in U12 girls sin­gles, as well as U10 boys sin­gles, which rep­re­sent some of her strong­est re­sults to date. In a large U12 boys field, Caden had a trio of dom­i­nant vic­to­ries be­fore a tough loss in the fi­nal to the No. 1 seed.

This in­door sea­son has proved to be ex­cep­tional for the con­tin­gent of Truro ten­nis ath­letes. They rep­re­sent strong re­sults, and the Cougar Dome is thrilled with the kids’ skill de­vel­op­ment.
