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.

Personal bests

Before joining the first-ever Lone Peak High School cross-country team this fall, freshman Nate McLain had never even really run long distance before—not even when taking part in mile runs during gym class.

Goal-getters

The Big Sky Futbol Club may be new this fall, but the players themselves are far from inexperienced. In fact, many of the young athletes have been competitively kicking the ball around for years.

Miners steam past Engineers

After a commanding 54-16 victory over Harlowton-Ryegate, the Ophir Miner Head Coach Ben Holst heaped praise on his team.

“Almost perfect. We did everything right on both sides of the ball,” said Coach Holst, who around mid-second quarter started cycling in younger players to give them lots of live game experience.
