Amtmann, Vetter open State run

Butte High’s Aidan Amtmann and Kaitlyn Vetter will put it all on the line today at the Meadow Lark Country Club tennis courts in Great Falls.

Amtmann, a junior, and Vetter, a senior, will take on a team from Billings West when Class AA State tennis tournament play opens at 8 a.m. Thursday. The duo is a No. 4 seed after battling back to claim fourth place at last week’s Southern AA Divisional tournament in Bozeman.

The Butte team is making its second straight State tournament appearance and is looking to build on last year’s two-and-out experience.

Their first-round match is no cupcake. West players Ricquel Ramsbottom and Katherine Cole were singles players this time last year. Last week, the won the Eastern AA Divisiona title, and they made it look easy.
