A strong showing

At the Bridger Bowl Shoot Out held March 1-3 the girls from the Big Sky alpine race team turned in a dominating performance.
On Friday the Big Sky Ski Education Foundation team placed eight racers in the top 15. On Sunday the ladies were even more impressive with 10 racers finishing in the top 15.

Meet the winning team.


Wins against Home School, Anderson and Monforton during the Bozeman Rural Schools Championship on Feb. 25 were the icing on an already delicious cake for the undefeated Ophir Middle School girls 7thand 8thgrade Miner basketball team. The Miners finished out their perfect season as champions of their district.

Lone Peak High junior Nick Brester takes a shot. This mid-January home game against regional rivals the West Yellowstone Wolverines was a win for Lone Peak – 52-44.

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.”
