Whitefish, Polson, Dillon looking strong after 1st day at State A tennis

KALISPELL — Home-court advantage doesn’t often apply much to high school sports, especially to schools that are close to each other. However, it seemed both the Polson and Whitefish kids excelled on the first day of the Class A state tennis championships on Thursday.

Whitefish had a winner advance out of the quarterfinals in four out of the four divisions — boys doubles and singles and girls doubles and singles.

Polson found itself with winners in two of the four divisions (no winner in boys doubles or singles).

Hardin, as usual, had three separate girls double teams. But unlike last year, all three were sent to the consolation round after Day 1.

Dillon also looked strong on Thursday, led by defending state boys singles champion Brad Rakich, who didn’t drop a set, winning 6-0 and 6-0.

The tournament will conclude Friday with semifinal and finals action.
