Tennis teams have good numbers heading into season

| March 20, 2024 2:00 AM

The Columbia Falls tennis team has good numbers again this year, with 17 girls and 27 boys on the roster.

The squads started practice outside last week, as the courts were snow free fairly early this year and the city put the nets up as soon as the courts were clear.

“We’d like to thank the city for putting the nets up,” coach Michele Colliander said.

This year’s squad will look for good things from Lexi Oberholtzer on the girls side and Logan Heupel, Jax Ramage and Will Pickard on the boys’s side.

Lane Hoerner, who was a standout football player, is already showing his talent on the court, Colliander noted.

Polson is the team to beat in the West. This is Colliander’s ninth season coaching. She is assisted by Kohl DeShazer.

The first meet is scheduled for April 2 against Ronan at home.
