BC tennis teams drop two in Great Falls

GREAT FALLS — Butte Central’s tennis teams met Havre and Lewistown in the middle for a pair of matches Tuesday.

The Maroon boys and girls dropped both matches. The girls fell 4-3 to Havre and 6-2 to Lewiston. The Maroons fell 7-1 to Havre and 8-0 to Lewiston.

“The scores don’t show it, but our boys are playing tough and getting better as the season progresses,” BC coach Becky Hancock said.

Freshman Tyge Yelenich continued his impressive season. He went 1-1 on the day, picking up BC’s lone win on the boys side.

Zoe Sullivan went 2-0 at No. 4 singles to lead the BC girls. Megan McPherson also picked up a singles win for the Maroons. Against Havre, the Maroons got a pair of doubles wins. Sierra Pica and Ryan Trudnowski won a match, as did Samantha Burton and Savannah Healy.

“Our girls are also coming around,” Hancock said. “Sarah Drew (No. 1 singles) is playing well, along with the rest of our singles putting forth strong matches today.”

The Maroons are back in action Thursday when they take on Anaconda. The boys play in Anaconda, while the girls play in Butte.
