Whitefish boys, Polson girls take NWA net titles

LIBBY — Whitefish dominated the boys field while Polson finished ahead of the pack to take the girls title at the Northwest A divisional tennis tournament on Thursday and Friday.

The Bulldog boys racked up 71 points, more than doubling runner-up Polson’s 35. Polson’s girls tallied 51 points to Whitefish’s 39.

Whitefish accounted for three of the four semifinalists in boys singles. Brendan Buls lost only two games over his final two matches to take the title easily.

The Bulldogs also won the boys doubles championship, as Mark Anderson and Forrest Kobelt bulldozed Columbia Falls’ John Gilk and Tristan Grein 6-1, 6-3 in the finals.

Kyler Lundeen and Berkley Ellis of Polson overcame Whitefish’s Aubrey Hanks and Olivia Potthoff 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 in a competitive girls doubles final.

The Pirates also claimed the girls singles title via Shea McGuinness, who defeated Claire Carloss of Whitefish 7-6, 6-2 in the championship.

The top four finishers in singles and doubles advanced to next week’s Class A state tournament beginning next Thursday in Polson and Ronan.
