LSA Coach“Hello! My name is Riley Gilsdorf, I am 20 years old and I am a senior Human Services major at Montana State University-Billings. After graduation, I hope to find a fulfilling career working with the people in my community. For the past few years, I have been coaching tennis with many groups, including Billings Parks and Recreation, Billings Tennis AssociationBig Sky Pickleball, and Tennis Club, and Billings West High's girl's tennis team. I have been playing tennis since I was 8 years old and have fallen in love with the sport!”
