All about the team

Sometimes there is a click – a connection, synchronicity – a flow. Experts have studied it, trying to figure-out how to replicate it in teams and businesses. There are even books written about it.

Lone Peak High School volleyball players, parents and fans say that this last season was a good example of what a team can become.

Dominating

Lone Peak Lady Big Horns Volleyball head coach Missy Botha has reiterated throughout the season that the varsity ladies love to play ball. They played throughout the summer, attended camps and are hesitant to leave practice.

Redemption game

Varsity coach Missy Botha said it was a tough match and a tough loss for the girls against Gardiner on Sept. 13. They fought hard. 

Junior Varsity also went 5 games with Gardiner “with an unfortunate loss, but they played hard,” coach Kara Blodgett said.

A fight 'til the bitter end

In the great microcosm of life – sports – Lone Peak Big Horn varsity boys and girls basketball players learned the attributes they were meant to learn: hard work; resilience; determination. 

Their record is not perfect, but the lessons learned should make them better adults.

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.”
