Yellowjackets sweep BC on courts

Maybe the Maroons weren’t used to the warm weather and sunshine.

The Stevensville Yellowjackets swept the Butte Central tennis teams Thursday on a rare nice spring day at the Father Sheehan Park courts.

Stevi won the boys match 6-1. The Yellowjackets topped the BC girls 5-2.

“I wish our performance was as good as the weather today, but what can you do?” BC coach Bernie Carey said. “Stevi has a great team this year. It’s going to be interesting how everything shakes out a week from now.”

The Maroons head to Corvallis for the Southwestern A divisional tournament.

The lone win of the day for the Maroon boys was also the match of the day.

Kale Guldseth and Tyler Trudnowsk came back from a 5-2 deficit in the third set to beat Lars Larson and Walker Weber in a 6-1, 2-6, 7-6 (7-1) thriller.

“Kale and Tyler really showed their competitive nature today,” Carey said. “I don’t know many people who can come back from a deficit like that.”

The rest of the Maroon boys went down in straight sets, although BC’s players battled well on a day that they were all seemingly just a little off.

Patrick Kenney, Jesse Reinke, Frank Hendrickson and Bryce Noctor all put up strong showings in defeat.

Team Sam, Sam Joyce and Sam Sterns, fell 6-4, 6-4 at No. 2 doubles. Devin Maloughney and Yulong Lin also put up a fight in a doubles match.

On the girls’ side, Ryan Trudnowski and Sarah Drew won 6-2, 6-0 at No. 2 doubles to highlight the day for the Maroons.

BC’s other victory came when Megan McPherson and Kathi Matthies won by default.

Ali Guldseth and Kellsie Quinn took Jennifer Harthan and Madisn Hebner to a tiebreaker in the No. 1 doubles match. Mederios Babb fell to LaKota Brist in what was a lot closer match than the 6-1, 6-1 score made it look at No. 1 singles.

Larysa Blavatsky, Kara Criscuolo and Marybeth Lyons also put up a fight in singles matches.

Next up for the Maroons is the Lewistown Invitational on Saturday.
