Run Today At 3

The Scobey girls’ basketball team shifts into post season mode this week in its quest to qualify for a third consecutive State C Tournament, which earlier this week shifted from Bozeman to Billings. Job number one for the Spartans is securing a victory today (Thursday, February 18) in a 3 p.m. semifinal at the District 3C Tournament in Malta, where they meet the winner of Tuesday night’s Frazer at Dodson first-round game.
