The Falcons transformed into a championship team in a single season. Twin Bridges is the champion of 2020 Girls’ District 12-C Basketball. The young team, with two eighth graders putting in some important minutes on the court, defeated the Granite Prospectors, 43-28, in Butte Feb. 22.

Twin Bridges girls’ basketball team had the lead all along on Harrison. The rescheduled game on Feb. 4 in Harrison highlighted two players on the court, Twin Bridges’ senior Ashleigh Guinnane and Harrison freshman Dana Lerum. Each led their teams in just about every way. The Falcons steadily gained on the Wildcats from the start.

Upset City

MADISON COUNTY –  There’s only one more weekend of regular-season play before high school basketball enters championship games. But the only mainstay of local teams seems to be the Twin Bridges boys, who just continue rolling toward what promises to be an exciting post-season.
