Mariana Gould captured a gold ball for the second straight year by winning the doubles title at the USTA Girls 16 and under National Championships held August 4-12 in San Diego, California.
Partnering with Kimberly Yee of Las Vegas, Gould and Yee defeated Gabrielle Smith and Olivia Sneed, 6-2,3-6, 7-6(2) to claim the title. She also made it to the quarterfinals of the singles event.
Fellow Smith Stearns student Hayley Carter won a bronze ball in the Girls 18 and under division with partner Brooke Austin.
This completes a fantastic summer in which Smith Stearns students won a gold ball, silver ball (Hampton Drake at the National Clays), and a bronze ball.
Congrats to all of our students on their great success this summer!
