Making history

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.

A COVID kick

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.

Lady Big Horns killin’ it

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.

Young team improves daily

Though the final score of the homecoming game was 19 to 36 and a win for the White Sulphur Springs Hornets, the Lone Peak Big Horns showed glimpses of brilliance. There is real promise for the future of the young team, Coach Adam Farr said.

Big Sky’s fields of dreams

Last week every field at Big Sky Community Park was simultaneously met with soccer cleats. Some of those cleats were tiny and some of the players were little human tornadoes. Big Sky Futbol Club’s second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders played on the fields to the west.

Lady Big Horns win again!

Harrison/Willow Creek gave the Lady Big Horns a run for their money on Sept. 26, besting them in the third game, but the Lady Big Horns took the match, making their record 8-0.

Young but tough team

With just a few seconds left on the clock as the Big Horns faced the Park City Panthers, Big Horns varsity quarterback Isiah Holst fired a Hail Mary rocket. That pass was tipped off the fingertips of three different players before settling into Pierce Farr’s grasp for a touchdown.
