BC tennis teams fall at Missoula Loyola meet

MISSOULA — Butte Central’s shorthanded tennis teams didn’t pick up a victory Saturday at Missoula Loyola-hosted meet at Fort Missoula.

The Maroons, though, brought home some individual victories.

“Overall today we put forth a strong effort on both sides,” BC coach Becky Hancock said.

On the boys’ side, BC fell 4-3 to Kalispell Glacier’s junior varsity team and 5-2 to Missoula Loyola.

Sam Sterns, Ian Campbell and Tyge Yelenich posted singles wins against Glacier. The Maroons grabbed a pair of forfeit victories against Loyola.

On the girls’ side, BC fell 6-0 to Loyola, 7-0 to Glacier and 4-3 to Philipsburg.

Sarah Drew and Zoe Sullivan won singles matches against Philipsburg. Samantha Burton and Savannah Healy won a doubles match.

BC is back in action Tuesday when they head to Great Falls to take on Lewistown and Havre.
