Can Scobey Girls Reach Point They Earn A Trophy?


The Scobey High School girls' varsity track and field team has reached the point where it resembles that old Dirty Shame Show song Old (Wo)Man River: these young ladies just keep rolling along, with queen-ofthe- hill results.

Can they keep the very satisfactory flow going for just one more meet, in the River City itself, Great Falls, home of the 53rd annual Class C Girls State Meet on May 24-25?

It will be held in conjunction with the 69th annual Class C Boys State Meet at Memorial Stadium, as well as the 53rd annual Class AA Girls and 57th annual Class AA Boys State Meets.

Action begins at 9 a.m. each day.

What teams will the Scobey girls be battling with for one of the top-three state trophies?

The two East C teams placing behind them at the divisional meet in Wolf Point certainly have to be in the discussion. The Spartans piled up 118 points while the Savage Warriors (84) and Saco Panthers (83) were second and third repectively.

Senior Brooke Reuter of the Warriors swept the three sprint races and could do so again in Great Falls while Saco seniors Josie Brown (100, 400, 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles) and Teagan Erickson (shot put, javelin, long jump, triple jump) plus freshman Emerson Downing (9-0, pole vault, first place at East C) could perform well enough to bring home a team trophy. Don’t count out the Plentywood duo of senior Audrey Sampsen and Mallory Tommerup perhaps performing well enough to slip into the No. 3 spot, especially if those two and sophomore Harlee Hart and freshman Keira Kelm can pick up some points in the 4x100 relay.

On the State C roster for the Scobey girls are seniors Kinsey Anderson, Mia Handran and Maria Landles (Opheim), juniors Kaytie Aanstad, Mya Green and Mady Willis, sophomore Camrie Holum and freshman Kayla Carney.

Other girls’ teams having a good opportunity to earn a top-3 trophy at state are: West Division champion Twin Bridges Falcons, who scored 108 points; North Division champ Belt Huskies (88.33) and runnersup North Toole County (Sunburst) Refiners (81); South Division winner Roberts Rockets (108).

The Scobey girls have scored 850.5 points in their eight meets thus far this season, an average of 106.3 points per meet. They have placed first five times, sec ond twice and fourth once, the latter being the 64th annual Shriner’s Meet in Glendive where Class A Hardin (93 points) and Custer County (63) and Class C Savage (62) outscored the Spartans’ 48 points.

On the boys’side, the Lustre Christian Lions claimed the top spot last week in Wolf Point. They tallied 97 points with Plentywood (81) and Scobey (80) earning the second- and third-place spots.
