Pre-season upset

It was a double-overtime disappointment for the Lone Peak High boys’ varsity team on Dec. 8, coming up short to Roberts with a final score of 66 to 71. “It was a heartbreaker,” said head coach Brian Van Eps of the loss. “They were a good team, a lot bigger than us, and better than we expected.”

A winning philosophy

The Ophir Miners fifth and sixth grade boys basketball team took home the championship title on December 1 – beating out eight other schools in the rural league in a two-day tournament held at Petra Academy in Bozeman.

Two Big Horns honored

During the Manhattan Christian Invitational volleyball tournament Saturday, Sept. 29, Twin Bridges got the best of the Big Horns. The Falcons’ Ashleigh Guinnane (PICUTURED, No. 15) celebrates here with a smile following a score.

Early season eagerness

There were ski tracks on the steep stretch of road leading down to the Upper Beehive Basin Trailhead on Sunday, Nov. 4. From there, skin tracks ran from the parking lot up into higher elevations and deeper snow. A Subaru parked in the lot had a bumpersticker summing up the current season with a mixed message.

Cheers to a great season

“That was a monster save,” said Missy Botha, head volleyball for the LPHS Big Horns. Her team had just defeated White Sulphur Springs and she was praising the play of Ruth Blodgett. Against the Hornets, Blodgett made a lunging one-handed tap back into play, protecting her team’s lead.
