Kodi Boersma is one of three seniors returning to the LPHS volleyball team.

Battle In Big Sky

LPHS Head Volleyball Coach Missy Botha describes the upcoming Battle In Big Sky Invitational as a, “A nice warm up. Irons out the wrinkles. Gets them ready to actually get their game faces on.”

The Big Horns finished last season with an 8-2 record in conference play, “which is the best in-conference record to date,” noted Botha. 

There’s always a little time to toss a disc during course maintenance.

Acing it

It may not be 150 acres of perfectly maintained turf, but the disc golf course at Big Sky Community Park needs maintenance to keep it up to snuff. And it takes a volunteer to step up to the plate to make that happen.

Lone Peak’s Revenge

“It has no mercy. It is steep. It is long. And it is everything that makes enduro racing fun. There is no shortage of awesome in store.”

That’s some of the knobby-tire hype flying around like trail gravel on social media and the web as we get closer to start time for Lone Peak’s Revenge.

If softball games are on, there’s a good chance you’ll find Dave Schwalbe at the fields. He’s volunteered for the community co-ed league since it began in 2000 and has seen one field grow to two and the number of teams double as well.

Play ball

Players were just starting to arrive for a night of co-ed softball as Big Sky Community Organization volunteer Dave Schwalbe gave the field a once-over before competition began. He didn’t have a game at 6 p.m., but was there anyway, ready to step up as umpire if he was needed. 

John Hannahs.

Pack the bleachers!

John Hannahs was playing pickup basketball a couple months back when he felt  a  jolt of pain shoot through his leg. He’d ruptured his Achilles tendon, an injury that took him off the court but did not              sideline his enthusiasm for community athletics.

Big Horns’ new battering ram

Online video highlights of the Capistrano Valley Christian Eagles offer a glimpse of what’s to come this season for Lone Peak High School football. The Big Horns are already blessed with returning quarterback Frankie Starz, who averaged three passing touchdowns per game last season.

N*SYNC founding member Chris Kirkpatrick has been coming to the BBBS Celebrity Tournament in Big Sky for a number of years. And this year was even better for him—he was able to visit with his young son, wife, family and friends between holes.

Golfing for the greater good

Anyone familiar with the sport of golf knows there’s a significant amount of frustration involved in a day on the course. That was not the case on Monday, July 9 when 33 teams hit the greens for the annual Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County Celebrity Golf Tournament.
