Havre's boys were unbeaten in doubles matches, and the girls were undefeated in singles play as both squads finished with 6-1 victories over Conrad in a dual tennis tournament Saturday at the Elks Park tennis courts.
Havre's Mike Frey and Seth Maristuen teamed to beat Conrad's Brian Rudolph and Brad Onstat 6-1, 6-2, and Tyler Croft and Jeremy Heninger gave Havre another doubles win with a defeat of Landon Snyder and Jack Lillis 6-1, 6-1.
Nikki Baltrusch, Crystal Pyrak, Laura Hedstrom and Samantha Shrauger each won their singles matches to help the Blue Ponies secure the girls' win.
Pyrak overcame a first-set setback to defeat Carolyn Wetendorf 5-7, 7-5, 6-1.
"I've been playing better than I expected," Pyrak said, noting her ability to approach the net has gotten better. "I was better today (at the net) than I usually am. My backhand is really weak."
Wind was gusting at times, but Havre's Ian Spencer said it did little to affect him during his 6-1, 6-2 win over Will Anderson.
"Sometimes it affects your serve and lobs over your head, but it wasn't too bad," he said.
Including exhibition matches, Havre's boys and girls won 20 of 28 matches against Conrad.
Havre's girls also had a dual against Chinook last Thursday and finished with a 17-1 victory.
