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.

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.

Big Horn of the Week

Emery Miller is an amazing young lady in many ways. The Lone Peak High School junior has been described as “creative” and “determined” and this accurately describes her both in and out of the classroom.

Pre-season upset

It was a double-overtime disappointment for the Lone Peak High boys’ varsity team on Dec. 8, coming up short to Roberts with a final score of 66 to 71. “It was a heartbreaker,” said head coach Brian Van Eps of the loss. “They were a good team, a lot bigger than us, and better than we expected.”
