LOCAL SPORTS – “ATHLETE OF THE WEEK”

 

(UNDATED) – KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE’S OF THE WEEK LED THEIR TEAMS TO BIG VICTORIES, IN THIS CASE, IN THE CONSOLATION GAMES OF THE 1B DISTRIC TOURNAMENT LAST WEEKEND.

OUR MALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK MAY HAVE BEEN AN OBVIOUS CHOICE TO SOME.  SOPHOMORE KEELY BAKE OF FAIRFIELD WAS OUTSTANDING THROUGHOUT THE TOURNAMENT, LEADING THE EAGLES TO A 3RD PLACE FINISH AND THEIR FIRST WIN OVER CHOTEAU THIS SEASON.

IF YOU MISSED IT, THE SHOT BY BAKE WAS LAUNCHED WITH ABOUT A SECOND LEFT FROM BEHIND THE HALF COURT LINE AND IT LITERALLY WAS NOTHING BUT NET.

THAT SHOT WAS ONE TO REMEMBER BUT BAKE WAS TREMENDOUS THROUGHOUT.  IN THE OPENER AGAINST ROCKY BOY HE LED THE EAGLES NOT ONLY IN POINTS BUT REBOUNDS WITH 12 AND ADDED 4 ASSISTS.  IN THE CONSOLATION VICTORY HE LED THE EAGLES WITH 22 POINTS AND WAS THE SECOND LEADING REBOUNDER WITH 9.   BAKE IS EXTREMELY ATHLETIC AND ONE OF HIS MOST IMPRESSIVE ABILITIES IS TAKING THE BALL TO THE BASKET AND SCORING OVER MUCH BIGGER DEFENDERS.   KEELY IS JUST 5-FT, 9-INCHES TALL, THE SECOND SHORTEST ON THE FAIRFIELD SQUAD.

OUR FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK, FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS SEASON IS JR. JAZMINE SPOTTED BEAR WHO WAS KEY IN UPSETTING SHELBY FOR 3RD PLACE IN THE CONSOLATION GAME.  SPOTTED BEAR IS THE LADY WOLVES POINT GUARD AND A PRIME COMPONENT OF THE DEFENSE.  WE DIDN’T HAVE THE NUMBERS BUT SHE CONSTANTLY GETS HER SHARE OF STEALS AND POINTS OFF TURNOVERS.    IN THAT CONSOLATION GAME SHE LED CUT BANK IN SCORING WITH 25, HER SEASON HIGH AND ADDED 5 REBOUNDS.   OVERALL SHE WAS 11-16 FROM THE FIELD, 1-2 FROM THREE POINT RANGE AND 2-4 AT THE FREE THROW LINE.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE’S OF THE WEEK, SOPHOMORE KEELY BAKE OF FAIRFIELD AND JR. JAZMINE SPOTTED BEAR OF CUT BANK.  THE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK IS SPONSORED LOCALLY BY McDONALD’S IN CUT BANK.   McDONALD’S HONORS OUR ATHLETE’S WITH TWO FREE VALUE MEALS EACH.
