Bulldogs still playing on Bozeman courts

BOZEMAN — Ten Butte High tennis players are still alive after the first day of the Southern AA Divisional tournament.

Aidan Amtmann and Kaitlyn Vetter, Butte High’s lone returning State tournament players, advanced to the semifinals. The Butte High No. 1 doubles team received a bye and won a quarterfinal match.

The rest of the Butte High players still play are in the consolation round.

Ali Dean and Molly Nelson of Butte High reached the consolation quarterfinal round. Sierra McGinnis and McKaul Ori made it that far in doubles.

Two doubles teams reached the consolation quarterfinals for the Bulldog boys. Kody Lane and Tucker Reilly still have life, as do Levin Mullaney and David Starcevich.

Mullaney and Starcevich beat out teammates Seth Jaksha and Marcus Madrazo after that team won a first-round match and then lost in the quarterfinals.

Action resumes at 7:30 a.m. Friday. The top four singles players and top four doubles teams advance to State.
