BOZEMAN — Butte Central’s tennis players got in some serious court time Thursday.
Playing mostly doubles, the Maroons played a total of 37 matches against the Bozeman junior varsity team. The BC boys outscored the Hawks 19-6, while the girls tied 6-all.
BC coach Bernie Carey said he was particularly pleased with his girls.
“It was extremely nice to see all of our girls have fun and get some wins under their belts today,” the coach said. “Hopefully it will be a big confidence booster for the future. I’m very proud of their performance.”
On the boys’ side, Carey mixed and matched his varsity players with junior varsity players.
“This allowed the JV athletes to get some on-the-court instruction from our veteran players and most importantly some awesome experience,” Carey said. “It also reinforced the importance of communication with our Varsity athletes. Overall, I’m glad the experiment worked. I think all the boys had a great time with it.”
The Maroons play Hamilton and Stevensville at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday at Father Sheehan Park in Butte.
