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.

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.
