The Lady Wolves’ tennis team hosted the eastern B/C divisional tennis meet on Saturday, May 12, in Glendive.
The big story is the Wolves’ No. 1 doubles team won the divisional championship, beating Forsyth’s No. 1 and Baker’s No. 2 team. Juniors Alyssa Hoversland and Ashley Parsley played very well and dominated their matches with a diverse style of power and finesse to take home the championship medals.
“Keebler and Smashley are starting to click as a good doubles team. They should have success at state,” said coach Dan Horsmon.
Wolves’ single player Katie Smith, also a junior, played four matches, making it to the semi-finals, winning two and losing two, to lock up a fourth-place and a trip to the state tourney in Missoula.
Other highlights included Wolves’ doubles team of junior Zirahuen Hernandez and freshman Sierra Hanks taking fourth-place, though this division only takes the top three doubles teams to state.
“Sierra and Z are fun to watch as their game has improved this year,” said Horsmon.
Carry Vandall went 2-2 on the back side of the bracket to clinch fifth-place.
“Carry is only a sophomore and she will be a tremendous player,” said Horsmon.
Senior Taylor Carey played well and also went 2-2 on the day.
“Taylor played with a broken arm, so essentially she was the one-armed bandit. She showed real toughness and made her team and herself proud,” noted Horsmon.
Freshman singles player Ky’Anna Broesder went 0-2 on the day and got some real good experience.
“We are looking for great things from her in the future,” said Horsmon.
