Nordic racing enthusiast Audrae Coury shows off her recent medals won at the Masters World Cup in Minneapolis. They’re three of many she’s collected over her racing career that spans three decades.

Taking it all in stride

When you enter Audrae Coury’s home in the Meadow, the first thing you’ll notice is the ski rack jam-packed with pair after pair of colorful Nordic skis. Then the pungent smell of ski wax hits your nose as your eyes shift to the numerous medals hanging on the coat rack along the wall. 

Isaac Gilmore came off the bench late against Manhattan Christian and took the fight to dominating Eagles.

Gilmore energizes Big Horns

One of the best parts of the difficult loss to Manhattan Christian came near the end when sophomore Isaac Gilmore entered the game with a head of offensive steam. He scored just 3 points, but his hustle and energy reinvigorated his teammates and the crowd.

Sophomore Emma Flach set the Lone Peak High School record for points scored in a game with 34. She beat the previous record of 25 points held by Luisa Locker.


Manhattan Christian’s offense is all about tossing the ball into No. 31, six-foot Kelsey Heidema. Once in the paint, Heidema knows how to pour in points with easy layups or even easier foul shots. Or at least, Heidema makes it look easy. 

Return to sender: Jackson Wade issuing another denial, this time on Shields Valley star Sage McMinn. Wade would rack up four blocks in the win.

Block by block

Whenever the Lone Peak Big Horns see an opportunity to exploit a size and height advantage, they take it. Time after time, as the Shields Valley Rebels tried to shoot down low, they were met with a powerful swat from center Jackson Wade. 

Wade went on to achieve another double-double with 21 points and 13 rebounds.

MVP fans

One of Lone Peak’s fiercest fans likes to sleep through entire games. Her name is Scarlet, she’s the coach’s infant daughter and she was born at the start of the season. When stray balls bounce toward Scarlet, she’s usually in the arms of her Grandmother Linda Cole, so she sleeps through those moments too.
