Bronxville Eighth-Grader Ava Bruno Places Second at the National Winter Championships in Singles and Doubles PDF Print Email


By S. Quinn DeJoy and J. Murrer

Jan 29, 2020: Bronxville student Ava Bruno was a finalist in both singles and doubles at the National Winter Tennis Championships held over the holidays in Tucson, Arizona. Bruno, who entered the tournament ranked 10th out of 128 players, earned two silver balls. The results of this tournament raised her national singles ranking to 8th and doubles ranking to 3rd.

There are many national tournaments for ages 14 and under during the year, but only five, including the National Winter Championship, are super national tournaments.

Last year Bruno competed in many National Level 2 Tournaments across the county. In June of 2019, she paired up with doubles partner Caroline McGinley. Bruno and McGinley played well together and won the National Doubles Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina.

“We met through tournaments and were always really good friends,” said Bruno. “We decided we would play together.”

Bruno started playing tennis at Concordia at the age of six and then moved to Kela Tennis when she was eight. Last year she trained full-time at the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing but has returned to the Bronxville School this year.

In 2017, Bruno played on the Bronxville girls’ varsity team as a seventh-grader. She played first singles for most of the year and helped the Broncos reach the top spot in Section 1 with a big win over No. 1 Ursuline toward the end of the season.

Bruno will rejoin the Bronxville girls’ varsity team in the fall. Stay tuned.
