Making history

The Lone Peak High School Varsity Volleyball team saw real challenges this year. The girls also rose to the occasion. From a quick victory against Harrison/Willow Creek in the 12C Tournament, to an incredible five game match against Gardiner, which they lost, to vanquishing Shields Valley for 3rd place in the conference.

A COVID kick

It should have been a night showcasing teamwork and talent – the kind of competition that only surfaces when teams are well matched. The Lone Peak High School Lay Big Horns and Manhattan Christian Lady Eagles both had undefeated records.

COVID in the community

As COVID-19 case numbers surge all over the county, Big Sky proves no exception. Gallatin City-County Health Department contract tracing in the area has led to two week quarantines and an impact on the high school. Lone Peak High School’s (LPHS) varsity volleyball team’s quarantine ends Oct. 24th.

Lady Big Horns killin’ it

It is rare for the Lady Big Horns to be taken to four games in a match this season, but the Mustangs kept them on their toes, with solid battles the second and fourth games. As head coach Missy Botha has noted, the Big Horns team is well balanced, with solid power on the offense as well as impressive defensive skills.

Young team improves daily

Though the final score of the homecoming game was 19 to 36 and a win for the White Sulphur Springs Hornets, the Lone Peak Big Horns showed glimpses of brilliance. There is real promise for the future of the young team, Coach Adam Farr said.
