Bulldog girls have big day on Helena courts

HELENA — Less than a week before the divisional tournament, Butte High tennis coach Mavis Bentley is feeling really good about her girls’ team. For good reason, too.

Saturday the Bulldogs had another solid day at the Helena Invitational, competing against all of the Class AA teams.

“I’m just really excited,” Bentley said. “I’m so proud of my girls.”

Aidan Amtmann and Molly Nelson led the charge for the Bulldogs, placing second in the No. 2 doubles division.

The Butte duo won a 6-3, 3-6, 10-5 thriller against Livingston’s No. 2 squad before falling 6-3, 6-1 to Madison Pedersen and Leonora Barton of Bozeman.

Molly Sprunger and Jesslyn Valle battled back to win a 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 third-place match. The Butte girls had to win three matches to get to that match.

McKaul Ori and Sierra McGinnis won three matches before falling in the third-place match.

In No. 3 singles, Mati Jones won three matches before dropping the third-place match, while Carlee Johnson lost her first match in the consolation bracket in the No. 2 singles division.

On the boys’ side, Butte High’s Brett Bentley won a match before going down in the consolation quarterfinals.

Griff Warner and Tyler Reilly dropped their second-round consolation match in No. 1 doubles. Andy Kelly and Levin Mullaney did the same at No. 2 doubles.

The divisional meet, in which Butte High will compete against Bozeman and the Helena schools, begins Thursday in Helena.
