STEVENSVILLE — Butte Central’s tennis teams showed progress Tuesday as the team took to the court for the second time of the season.
The Maroons, though, did not return home with any team wins to show for it.
Stevensville swept Southwestern A duals with the Maroons. The Yellowjackets won the girls’ battle 4-1. Stevi’s boys beat BC 5-1.
Action involved playing best-of-three sets. If a set tied a 6, a seven-point tiebreaker was played.
“The kids are coming along,” BC coach Becky Hancock said. “They have the gist of the game, but we have a lot within the fundamentals of the game we need to focus on in practice. Our ground strokes need to become more consistent, along with our serving game. All which will come with time and some good weather to practice in.”
Payton Hartwick and Sage Wall won a match at No. 1 doubles to give BC’s girls their lone victory. They won in straight sets.
Cousins Drew Badovinac and Gage Guldseth picked up BC’s lone win on the boys’ side. They beat Domanic Bridges and Dylan Janes in a 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 thriller. They won the tiebreaker of the third set 7-2.
Central’s Justus McGeen an Owen McPartland fell in three sets to Josh Ryker and Colvin Whitehair.
The Maroons will play their first home matches of the season Saturday when they welcome Corvallis and Hamilton to Stodden Park.
