STATE BOUND: Ennis girls softball places fourth in divisional tournam

The Ennis lady Mustang softballers aren’t wasting any time. Merely two years into the team’s existence the girls battled their way through divisional play to place fourth in the Western B-C division. Their first divisional matchup was on May 20 against Loyola, winning 15-5. The next day dealt an early 20-1 loss against Mission-Arlee-Charlo.

Flying Falcons

Twin Bridges track and field athletes performed well at the April 16 meet held at Park High in Livingston with girls placing second out of 10 teams with 94.5 points and boys placing third out of nine with 99 points. A number of personal records were made, as well as a school record in the 800-meter race.

Back on track

Sheridan track and fielders bounced back after a missed year of competition at the Frenchtown track and field meet on April 9. Unlike many early meets, where snow and wind greet competitors, the day of competition was held on a beautiful Montana spring day. It was a warm welcome for the athletes who had an unexpected year off last season.
