Bozeman doubles tennis partners Colton Litle and Oliver Carr have been best friends since Kindergarten. They decided to team up on the tennis courts when they were freshmen, and that chemistry helps their play.
I think it's good we have that connection. We have that bond that's been there for a long time and it's easy to read each other and feed off each other and that's a big benefit for us this season," said Oliver Carr.
It definitely helps us a lot we know what to expect from each other and we're comfortable with each other and it's fun to be out there with your best friend," said Colton Litle.
That makes them one step quicker, and if that makes them quicker it makes them one half step better. So all that anticipation adds into the way they play," said head coach Mike Anderson.
Now what's great about Colton and Oliver's relationship is that because they've been friends for so long, they can get pretty honest with each other when things aren't going their way.
We can kind of get on each other a little bit more we have that relationship so we're not gonna get personally hurt by what we say to each other so we can pick each other up we can criticize each other but in the end it all works out," said Carr.
It's nice when you can be somewhat frank with him but then leave it on the court and not let hard feeling's fester," said Anderson.
The duo placed second at divisionals... and have big time goals at the state tournament in Great Falls this week.
Our goal is to make it to day two we have a lot of potential and we just want to place at state and that's what we're going for," said Carr.
