Bulldogs Amtmann, Casagranda/Nordstrom take second in Helena

HELENA — The Butte High tennis team appears to be ready for next week’s divisional tournament.

The Bulldogs had a strong showing Saturday, capping the Helena Invitational with two second-place finishes to go along with a handful of victories.

“We did great,” Butte High coach Mavis Bentley declared. “I’m very proud of the whole team. They played well and they were competitive.”

Hannah Amtmann and the doubles team of Erik Casagranda and Jory Nordstrom finished second in the two-day event that includes several tournaments in one. The competition includes tournaments for Nos. 1, 2 and 3 singles and Nos. 1, 2 and 3 doubles.

Amtmann won a semifinal match Saturday before falling to Missoula Hellgate’s Maria Skiftun in the championship match of the No. 2 singles tournament.

Bentley pointed to Amtmann’s semifinal win over Shelly Oulette of Livingston. Bentley said Amtmann was losing before she made an adjustment to start attacking the net and finishing off the win in dominating fashion.

“She just took it to her,” Bentley said. “She won seven points at the net.”

Casagranda and Nordstrom lost a three-set battle in the championship match at No. 3 singles. Bentley pointed out that Casagranda, a freshman, hadn’t played doubles until Friday.

“He improved form yesterday, I know that,” Bentley said.

Levin Mullaney advanced to the consolation semifinal round of No. 2 singles before losing Saturday. Blake Casagranda and Marcus Madrazo bowed out in their first loser-out matches in the morning.

Tyler Ossello and Seth Jaksha won a match before bowing out at No. 2 doubles. Blake Bentley and Nate Scherman lost their first match of the morning after wins on Friday.

On the girls’ side, Madi Jones won three matches Saturday to advance to the consolation championship of the No. 3 singles. There, she suffered a fall and was forced to default with a wrist injury.

Bentley indicated the injury wasn’t a sprain, and the Bulldogs are hopeful Jones will continue her strong season at divisionals.

In No. 1 singles, McKaul Ori, who played doubles most of the season, won two matches before falling in the consolation semifinals.

At No. 2 doubles, Sydney Jennings and Carlee Johnson won a match before losing out. They played up a level because Butte High entered two No. 1 doubles teams and no No. 3 team.

Coach Bentley pointed out that they won a 15-13 tiebreaker in their come-from-behind win Saturday.

“They never gave up,” the coach said.

Molly Nelson and Sierra McGinnis made it until Saturday morning before bowing out at No. 1 doubles.

The Bulldogs will be in Bozeman for next week’s divisional tournament against the Hawks and Helena Capital.

“We’re as ready as we’re going to be,” Bentley said. “I would love to win a divisional title. If everybody plays the way we can, it is possible.”
