The Havre High boys tennis team had highs and lows during the first day of the Class A state tennis tournament. Rain wreaked havoc with the tourney Thursday in Great Falls, forcing matches to be moved indoors, then back outside again. Meanwhile, HHS senior Justin Jensen went 2-1 in singles on day one and is the only Blue Pony still alive heading into Friday's final day of the season. Jensen won an easy first-round match, as well as a loser-out match Thursday evening. In between, he lost a heartbreaker to Hardin's Rusty Brushia in the quarterfinals. The tandem of Brayden Grimson and Simon McCann lost two matches on Thursday.
On the girls side, HHS sophomore Brandy Lambourne was beaten in the first round of the girls singles, but rebounded to oust a Polson competitior in the loser-out bracket. Lambourne was eliminated on Thursday night by another Polson standout, in three sets.
Jensen will play Polson's Brady Hislop in a stay alive match Friday morning.
