BOZEMAN – Less than a week after capturing three of the four varsity championships at the Helena Tennis Invite, the Bozeman Hawks were at it again on Friday.

Bozeman won three of four championships at the divisional tournament, which welcomed Helena High and Helena Capital to the competition. No. 1 singles player and top-ranked Marcos Zelver defeated Cory Bowlby in a rematch from last weekend in Helena. Zelver won 6-0, 6-0 to remain unbeaten.

Heather Sikoski, Bozeman’s No. 1 on the girls side, also picked up a rematch victory after toppling Helena High’s Lucie Marques 6-1, 6-2. Sikoski finished runner-up at last year’s Class AA state tournament, falling to then-teammate Madison Shea in the finale.

Bozeman earned its third championship of the weekend in the boys doubles, as Jackson Pedersen and Logan Derby picked up a 6-2, 6-1 win over Helena High teammates Noah Jakovac and Alex Seburn. Pedersen and Derby defeated Havre High a week ago at the Helena Tennis Invite.

The Class AA state tennis invitational will be held in Kalispell at Flathead Community College on Thursday, May 18 and Friday, May 19.
