Beavers hand BC tennis eye-opening losses

DILLON — The Dillon Beavers dealt the Butte Central tennis teams a pair of Southwestern A losses Thursday afternoon.

Dillon won the boys’ battle 7-0, while the Beavers edged the Maroons 4-3 on the girls’ side.

All three of the Maroons wins on the day game in girls’ doubles.

Shea Davis and Prestynn Weldon won in straight sets at No. 1 doubles. Tess Riordan and Sophie Sullivan won in straight sets at No. 2, while Delaney Hasquet and Avery Kelly did the same at No. 3.

“It was a little rough for us today,” Butte Central coach Becky Hancock said. “Aside from the girls’ double side dominating, we struggled. I think it was a big eye opener for some of them to realize the work you need to put in to play at the competitive level.”

Tricia Joyce dropped a tough 6-7, 7-6, 10-4 battle to Ashlyn Sandall in a No. 1 singles match.

Guido Ossello put up a strong fight in a 6-4, 6-4 loss to Matthew Knight at No. 1 singles. He also teamed with Aidan Petritz in a 6-1, 7-5 loss to Mark Southam and Nathaniel Leonardson in a No. 1 doubles match.

“In tennis, there is only one level and that is varsity,” Hancock said. “So for our younger players just learning the game, they jump into some pretty big shoes to fill. We are doing some good things out there though, given the amount of time we have had outside. We’re working out the kinks all takes time, and we still have a lot of tennis to be played.”

The Maroons will play at home Saturday when they play a play a pair of conference matches at Father Sheehan Park. They battle Corvallis at 10 a.m. before taking on Hamilton at 2 p.m.
