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.

The folks at Protect Our Winters are funny.

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.

Crossing the finish line

Lone Peak High’s pioneer cross country competitors took part in the Montana State XC meet held at the University of Montana golf course on Oct. 20. They may not have brought home any medals, but Head Coach Dave Brekke said he’s more than pleased with his two long distance racers’ first season.
