In the world of local sports, Lone Peak High School had a busy weekend.
Lone Peak High School
It’s almost time for football. Which means LPHS and the community of Big Sky will be excited for the home football opener in mid-September. However, this year there will be an added level of excitement, a new turf football field.
“I was super excited.”
The Bighorns have brought home the championship. Just probably not one you're thinking of. Unlike most recognition that Lone Peak High School students receive, mainly regarding sporting events, this is something unique.
Basketball never sleeps.
Lights, camera, action! Thirty-one student actors are vigorously rehearsing and an eight person crew is working diligently so the Lone Peak Thespians can bring Legally Blonde, The Musical to the WMPAC stage next Tuesday and Wednesday.
Lone Peak High School (LPHS) spring sports have proven challenging thus far, according to LPHS Athletic Director John Hannahs. Less than ideal weather did not help, nor did Spring Break running right down the middle of an incredibly active week in the season. Also, Covid-19 has continued to plague planning.
Scheduling and playing sports has proven challenging in the time of COVID. Big Sky School District winter sports teams faced some challenges, including team quarantines. Even student transportation to games for various sports has taken some effort.
The National Honor Society (NHS) announced that Michael Romney, a high school senior at Lone Peak High School and member of NHS, has been selected as an NHS Scholarship semifinalist. Michael Romney was chosen from nearly 10,000 applicants and will receive a $3,200 scholarship toward higher education.
The seventh annual Friends of Big Sky Education (FOBSE) senior recognition ceremony took place on April 2. Twenty-two seniors applied and received scholarships funded by various local donors, facilitated by FOBSE.
