Lady Trojans show promise at Great Falls Tournament


April 12, 2017

Competing in just their second event of the year at last week's Great Falls Tournament, Whitehall High School tennis coach Kerry Sacry was very happy with the way his team fared.

"Everyone played well. Very pleased with the performance," Sacry said.

Monica Sepulveda is showing she will be a force to be reckoned with during her senior campaign.

Sepulveda was a perfect 5-0 at last week's Great Falls Tournament, picking up wins against opponents from Harlem, Chester-Joplin-Iverness, Simms, Fort Benton and Fairfield. Sepulveda did not lose a set in two days of action.

"Great wins for Monica. She beat everyone's best," Sacry said.
