• Kourtney Kowal of Peachtree City, a 16-year-old sophomore at Starr’s Mill High School, brings home two impressive trophies this month.

After winning four rounds of singles in the Mississippi National 16s tournament held in Ridgeland, Miss., she and Alexandra Clay of Grayson, Ga., made it to the finals of the Doubles, including beating the No. 1 one seeds in the semifinals, Rebecca Bodine and Amy Grossling for Florida, without losing a single game.

She and Clay won the doubles in the Pensacola National 16s held in Pensacola over Thanksgiving as well.

This past weekend, Kourtney again brought home the doubles trophy at South Fulton in the 18s Southern tournament this time with partner Allison Falkin of Roswell, Ga. As the No. 2 seeds, they beat Alex Clay and Julia Courter, both from Ga., who were the No. 1 seeds. The score was 8-4.

Kourtney trains at the Peachtree City tennis center and is the daughter of Dr Kowal of Fayetteville and Geri Scott-Kowal of Peachtree City. She is an honor student, plays in the symphonic band, and is the No. 1 singles player for the Starr’s Mill Panthers Tennis team.
