Katie Volynets, of JMG Tennis Academy at Arden Hills, brought another gold ball to her national championship title collection (won Orange Bowl, Easter Bowl, and National Championship). This time she was too tough for her opponents in the Billie Jean King Junior National Championship in San Diego on August 11, 2019. The winner of the tournament traditionally earns a wild card into the main draw of US Open which starts in two weeks.
Katie has been training with JMG at Arden Hills for the last two months. Katie expressed in a post match interview that she is happy she chose JMG Academy to be a part of her journey to become a pro tennis player, and we couldn’t be happier as well. Katie also won the sportsmanship award for the tournament.
Throughout her successful run in the draw (Katie was seeded number two) she was coached by Joseph Gilbert and his assistant coaches and players crew.
