Missoulian Tennis roundup

HELENA - Ristine Olson was western Montana's only No. 1 tennis player to win in the semifinals of Saturday's rain-shortened Helena Invitational.

The Missoula Sentinel freshman defeated Helena High's Brigid Crowley but did not get to play for the title. All matches were halted prematurely because of showers.

Kalispell had a pair of No. 2 seeds win their semifinal matches, as well as Missoula Big Sky and Deer Lodge. The Braves' duo of Anna and Lizzie Iwerson knocked off Havre's Breyon Briese and Samantha Velk. They would have faced Deer Lodge's Teri Winfrey and Stephanie Hannon, who defeated Sentinel's Paige Whitehead and Brittney Williams.

In the No. 2 boys' singles, Kalispell's Andy Frey recorded a victory in two sets against Butte's Kevin Doran.

Big Sky's Jon Switzer, playing in the second slot, won his semifinal match in two sets over Havre's Nick Heninger 6-2, 6-3.

Hellgate had two other doubles teams fall just short. The top team of Caleb and Nathan Sandford, and the No. 2 team of Nate Seebart and Ray Gamradt each lost in the semifinals, as did Sentinel's No. 3 team of Weston Comfort and Pat Fritz.

Also for the Spartans, Jaclyn Morgan dropped a 6-1, 6-0 match in the semifinals of the No. 2 singles
