Q: I am not a gym, group exercise or tights fan, but I need some coaching. Any advice for me?
Q: Is physical labor enough?
Q: Is it true that you cannot out-train a bad diet? Or a BIG healthy diet? I have an active job, and train 3X/ week pretty hard, but can’t seem to move my belt notch. I am stronger and suck less wind, but still carry an extra 30 pounds. Any practical tips? Joe, 45

The Lone Peak High School Varsity Volleyball team saw real challenges this year. The girls also rose to the occasion. From a quick victory against Harrison/Willow Creek in the 12C Tournament, to an incredible five game match against Gardiner, which they lost, to vanquishing Shields Valley for 3rd place in the conference.
Lone Peak Lady Bighorns earned a 3rd place trophy in the 12C District Conference just after coming out of quarantine.
It should have been a night showcasing teamwork and talent – the kind of competition that only surfaces when teams are well matched. The Lone Peak High School Lay Big Horns and Manhattan Christian Lady Eagles both had undefeated records.
Lone Peak High School’s men’s soccer team competed against Whitefish High School in the playoffs on Oct. 17. The Bulldogs landed three goals in the first half and the Big Horns kept them scoreless in the second half. “Great game, obviously not the ideal result,” head coach Tony Coppola said.
The Lady Big Horns have rarely been taken to four games in a match this season. With momentum clearly on the Lady Big Horns side for the first two games, the Twin Bridges Lady Falcons rallied for the third.
It is rare for the Lady Big Horns to be taken to four games in a match this season, but the Mustangs kept them on their toes, with solid battles the second and fourth games. As head coach Missy Botha has noted, the Big Horns team is well balanced, with solid power on the offense as well as impressive defensive skills.
