Maroons ‘competitive’ on Great Falls courts

GREAT FALLS — Butte Central’s tennis teams put up a strong fight in non-conference matches Tuesday against Lewistown and Havre.

The Maroons girls knocked off Lewistown 5-2 and fell to Havre 4-3. The shorthanded BC boys fell 6-1 to Lewistown and 4-3 to Havre.

The Central boys had to forfeit the Nos. 1 and 2 singles in both duals. Each match started at 2-all because of time.

“Overall we had some competitive play against some tough squads,” BC coach Becky Hancock said. “A lot of the kids were going into a third set tiebreaker, some of those we came out on top and others just falling short. Our play still needs to become more consistent, but we are getting there.”

The day saw BC play 10 tiebreakers, and the Maroons went 5-5 in those matches.

Tricia Joyce went 2-0 on the day to lead the Maroons in singles play. Sage Wall also picked up a singles win for the Maroons.

Shea Davis and Prestynn Weldon went 2-0 at No. 1 doubles. BC teammates Tess Riordan and Marissa Anderson did the same in No. 3 doubles.

Delaney Hasquet and Avery Kelly won a match at No. 2 doubles.

On the boys’ side, Bryson Sestrich, playing No. 4 singles, went 2-0. Luke Heaphy added a singles win, while Drew Badovinac and Gage Guldseth teamed for a doubles victory.

BC’s No. 1 boys doubles team of Aidan Petritz and Guido Ossello had a hard-luck day. The duo came up on the short end of a pair of 11-9 tiebreakers.

The Maroons head to Hamilton and Corvallis Saturday for the Hamilton Invitational.
