The Whitehall High School tennis team will open the postseason when they host the 2018 Southeast Divisional B/C Tournament Thursday to Saturday in Belgrade.

According to head coach Kerry Sacry, the matches will take place at Belgrade High School which is located at 600 Spooner Drive. The tournament will feature host Whitehall, Broadwater (Townsend), Three Forks, Jefferson High (Boulder) and Lone Peak.

The Lady Trojans will have four players in singles. Kyeli Ostler is the top seed for the team, Britney Welker is seeded two, Dorothy Mastel is seeded three, and Alicia Konold is seeded fourth. In the first round, Konold will face off against fourth seeded Emma Bohem of Three Forks. The winner will face number two seeded Leah Vossler of Boulder.

Ostler, Welker, and Mastel will open competition in the second round of the double elimination tournament. The top four singles players will advance to the state tournament.

Ostler will open against third seeded Breanna Humphrey of Boulder. Welker will face off against fourth seeded Abbie Supalla of Boulder, and Mastel will square off against third seeded Amanda Bergstad of Broadwater.
