Bulldogs battle on Helena courts

HELENA — Butte High’s tennis teams weathered the rain and the cold Saturday during Day 2 of the Helena Invitational.

The Bulldogs also learned a little bit about themselves along the way.

“Overall, I was very pleased,” Butte High coach Mavis Bentley said, pointing out that Bulldog players played in 16 tiebreakers over the tournament. “We had a lot of matches played, and we had a lot of tie breakers. We learned how to play under pressure.”

Griff Warner and Tanner Tregidga reached the quarterfinals in the No. 2 doubles tournament. The tournament is basically a series of tournaments.

David Starcevich and Levin Mullaney won a consolation match in the No. 3 doubles tournament, while Tyler Reilly lost out Saturday in the consolation of the No. 2 singles.

“The boys were more aggressive,” Bentley said. “They attacked the net.”

On the girls’ side, Butte High’s Molly Nelson lost in the quarterfinals of the No. 2 singles. Jesslyn Valle and Ali Dean competed in the No. 3 singles, bowing out in the consolation rounds.

Three Butte High doubles teams — Kaitlyn Vetter and Aidan Amtmann, Sierra McGinnis and McKaul Ori, and Lexi Brandon and Molly Sprunger — all advanced to Saturday’s play.

The tournament, which wasn’t completed because of rain, was the final tune up before the Bulldogs head to the Divisional tournament Thursday in Bozeman.
