Whitehall's Kyeli Ostler returns a shot Friday against a Granite opponent.

The Whitehall High School tennis team was able to battle against some fierce competition at last week's Dawg Bite Tennis Tournament.

The Lady Trojans, along with Townsend and Boulder hosted the two-day event.

Whitehall competed last Friday against Chester-Joplin-Inverness and Granite High Schools, and Saturday against Poplar, Simms, and Lone Peak.

Whitehall head coach Kerry Sacry said teams rotated between the three sites, and they got to see teams they normally do not play.

In Friday action, Sacry said senior Monica Sepulveda played number one singles for Whitehall and won both of her matches.

"The rest of our team played well but since the opponents did not have enough players they recycled their best players though our lineup. I was pleased with how our team competed and I would say every player got better," he said.

Whitehall turned around Saturday and won all four matches against Poplar, a team that traveled 8.5 hours for the competition.

Sepulveda continued her strong play Saturday, winning three of four matches.

"She lost to a very good Lone Peak player, but played some very good tennis. Monica always has to play the other team's best players. She is winning most of her matches," Sacry said.

Junior Kyeli Ostler went 1-2 on Saturday, and Sacry said it was against some very tough competition.

"Lone Peak has two of the best players in the state and the rest of their team is good as well. I was pleased with how we competed with them. Simms has a good team as well we just through together matches to get the kids the most playing time. We won about 50 percent of those matches," he said.

Results of Whitehall's home match Tuesday against Boulder and Lone Peak was not available at press time.

The team will next compete Saturday on the road at Lone Peak.
