Champions crowned in youth tennis tournament

A handful of area tennis players claimed titles at the Butte Tennis Association Youth Tennis Tournament recently.

Blake Casagranda claimed a singles and a doubles crown. He beat Nate Scherman in the title match of the boys’ 16-and-older division.

Sam Sterns topped Brett Bentley for third place.

Casagranda then teamed with Scherman to beat Bentley and Eric Casagranda in the championship match of the boys’ doubles division.

Eric Casagranda won the boys’ 15-under title. That division was decided by round-robin play.

In the girls’ 15-and-under division, Caitlyn Scheehan claimed the title in the round-robin tournament. Sydney Jennings and Jacee Sprunger won the girls’ doubles, also winning in a round-robin format.

In the girls’ 16-and-older division, Sprunger and Hannah Amtmann are still alive for the yet-to-be-determined title.
