Airing it out: Winter Johnson clears the jump.

Fast and fearless

The ladies from the Big Sky Ski Team demonstrated their strength and winning ways in an impressive weekend of ski racing at the Lone Peak Speed Series Giant Slalom held February 9-10 at Big Sky resort on the Hangman course.

Eyeing districts

It’s safe to say no one in the “know” when it comes to Big Horns basketball was looking forward to the games against the Manhattan Christian Eagles. One parent, who wanted to remain anonymous – said, “Maybe we’ll beat them – one of these years.”

Crushing it

The middle school girls basketball season is now underway, and student interest in the sport is high. This year two teams represent the Ophir Lady Miners, with 20 girls on the 5/6th grade team and 15 on the 7/8th grade team.

It was an intense battle: steals, blocks, man-to-man coverage and many fouls on both sides on January 4 when the Lady Big Horns took on the Twin Bridges Falcons. Freshman Carly Wilson expressed her excitement in winning the game. That ‘W’ was thanks in part to Wilson’s superior shooting skills.

Beating the birds

The Lady Big Horns played a high intensity and historic game against the Twin Bridges Lady Falcons on January 4, beating the Falcons 44-38. It was the first time in team history that the Lady Big Horns beat the Lady Falcons.

Lone Peak High senior Kolya Bough and his teammates look to make a stop. The Twin Bridges Falcons had an obvious height advantage against the Lone Peak Big Horns, beating Big Sky’s b-ballers 73-28 on January 4.

Preparing for West Yellowstone

It was a battle through the first and second quarters during their January 4 home game against Twin Bridges, but the Big Horn boys lost their momentum after the half. With 2:53 left in the first quarter, a side three-pointer was secured by Big Horn number 22, Frankie Starz, tying the game 10-10 against the Falcons.

Home game heartache

Lone Peak Big Horns fans showed up full force for their girls and boys varsity teams’ first home games of the season on December 20, spilling into visitor seating as all the spots began to fill on the home team’s side. Attendees seemed to agree – it might have been the biggest fan turnout they’d ever seen.
