Amtmann, Vetter going back to State

BOZEMAN — Butte High’s Aidan Amtmann and Kaitlyn Vetter have one more high school tennis tournament together.

The Bulldog duo placed fourth in the Southern AA Divisional tournament Friday, securing a spot in next week’s Class AA State tournament in Great Falls.

The trip is the second in a row for the teammates. Vetter is a senior, while Amtmann is a junior.

Saturday, they beat Helena’s Alicia and Dani Norling in a 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 battle to secure the spot at State.

The Butte team fell to Kayla Ryan and Jessica Simkins of Bozeman in the battle for third place. Earlier in the day, they fell to eventual doubles champion Zoe Lindrgam and Madi Pederson of Bozeman.

Amtmann and Vetter are the only Bulldog tennis players to advance from the divisional tournament.

Sierra McGinnis and McKaul Ori fell to Ryan and Simkins in the consolation semifinals on Friday. Singles players Ali Dean and Molly Nelson dropped out in consolation play on Friday.

Boys’ doubles players Kody Lane and Tucker Reilly, and Levin Mullaney and David Starceivch suffered the same fate. The same can be said of singles player Andy Kelly.

The Bulldog girls placed second in the tournament that included Bozeman and Helena High. Butte High placed third. Bozeman won both team titles.
