Flathead and Columbia Falls split their tennis duals on Tuesday at Flathead Valley Community College, finishing their rounds just before a spate of rain came through the area.
Flathead took the boys dual, boosted by wins at the top pairings in singles and doubles. Ridge Lembke and Ethan Hawkins won their singles matches in straight sets and the top three doubles teams won, with Garrett Regoli and Will Taylor-Lewellyn coming back from down a set to win in extra points to clinch the victory.
The Columbia Falls girls dominated their side of the dual, sweeping all four doubles matches and getting wins from Molly Schmit at No. 1 singles and Anna Pickard at No. 4s.
Columbia Falls’ planned dual with Glacier was called off with rain in the area.
