Cut Bank’s Damien Burke sends a serve across the net during doubles action last weekend in Cut Bank.

The Cut Bank Wolves boys and girls tennis teams traveled to Conrad on Saturday, April 3 for a day of duals before the Easter holiday. Each dual included four singles matches and three doubles matches.  

The teams started the day against Conrad. The girls team bested the Cowgirls 4-3 by winning three singles and a doubles match, while dropping just one singles match and two doubles matches. The Conrad  boys team has just one player and he managed to beat the Wolves singles players he was matched up against.  

The Wolves then moved on to face Lewistown. The boys team lost the dual 2-5, while the girls team dropped the dual 3-4. The last matches of the day for Cut Bank were against Havre. The girls team beat the Blue Ponies 5-2, while the boys team lost their dual 1-6. 

With five girls competing, there was a lot of mix and matching to fill the singles and doubles matches. 

Courtney Anderson paved the way for the girls team, playing the top singles players from all schools and finished the day with a 2-4 record for singles and doubles. 

Caitlin Vermulm finished with a 3-3 record, while freshman teammates Stella Overstreet ended the day 4-2 and Lauren Yttredahl finished 2-4. Freshman Kellyn Dunaway won all her singles and doubles matches on the day to finish 6-0. 

The boys team was paced by top doubles team Brett Sneed and Dillon Gray, who went 2-0 for the day. Also competing for the boys  team and their records for the day were Carl Estey (0-3), Damien Burke (2-1),  Peyton St. Goddard (1-2), Jackson Black (0-4), Jacob Gohr (1-3), Jakob Paulson (0-3), and Kaden Arensmeyer (1-2).   

The Wolves tennis teams will be in Great Falls for more duals on Thursday, April 8 and in Havre on Saturday, April 10 for round robin play.
