The Wolves’ tennis teams traveled to Choteau last week to match up with the Bulldogs in a head to head duel. The Bulldogs managed to win all four singles while the Lady Wolves swept the doubles and dropped the duel 2-4. The Bulldogs boys’ roster only showed two singles players so the Wolves took a 5-1 duel team win.
Lily Overstreet dropped her match to last year’s Division champion Michaela Gunderson. The Wolves’ Shannia Schmidt played S-2, Sharaira First Rider S-3 and Courtney Anderson S-4. All three girls lost to their Bulldog opponents. Picking up the two wins for the Lady Wolves were D-1 Madi Seifert/Katelyn Edinger 8-2 over McKenzie/Stutz. Also winning easily were Macee Barry/Jaycee Frydenlund as they downed the Bulldog’s D-2 team 8-1.
Gus Meiwald played well but fell to Daniel Asselstine 8-5 while John Vermulm defeated Ryan Rogers 8-0 at the number 2 singles spot. Asselstine and Rogers teamed up to play Colby Kraft/Colten Barsness in doubles. Kraft/Barsness won easily 8-3. All of the other Wolves picked up forfeit wins but were able to get in some exhibition matches.
Friday and Saturday’s matches in Libby were cancelled due to a miscommunication. A duel matchup in Bigfork was hastily scheduled to replace the trip to Libby. Unfortunately, rain caused cancellation of this match also. The Wolves’ next matches will be home at the NW Preview Tournament on Saturday.
“We are looking forward to getting back on the courts and competing,” said Head Coach Jim Gregg. “We need matches at this stage of the season, so hopefully the weather will cooperate with us the rest of the way.”
