KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy Athletes of the week both played big roles in advancing their teams one step further in the postseason. When I asked the coach of our female athlete of the week, what she does especially well on the floor, she answered, "Everything".
North Toole County Head Volleyball coach Kourtney Pace was referring to her senior captain, Katara Ryan, who led the Refiners to a third place finish in the 6C West District Tournament and an advancement to the Northern C Divisional. That, after a fifth place seed heading into the tournament. Ryan plays in every rotation and had especially good overall numbers against two of the best in the district with eleven kills, three blocks and nine digs against Valier and eleven kills and five blocks against the eventual champion Simms Tigers. Coach Pace also told us that Katara is serving at an amazing 97% clip and that she has only missed three or four times all year.
Male athlete of the week honors go to Valier's standout running back and defensive back, Isaac Ramos. Ramos may never be described as a "big back" at just five foot five and 140 pounds, but "quick," "smart," "tough"... those terms would definitely apply. In Valier's undefeated Northern Division Conference season, Ramos has had numerous games worthy of the selection, but until now hasn't received the recognition. In the Panther's 70-6 win over Box Elder, the speedy running back rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns. He also returned a kickoff 78 yards for a touchdown, had two interceptions for touchdowns and eight solo tackles on the defense. Ramos is one of the surest tacklers on the Panther defense and obviously provides an offensive spark with 13 touchdowns in Valier's last four games.
It's that time of year again - the fall sports postseason. We've got football and volleyball brackets for you. We will be bringing you the Shelby at Huntley Project game on KSEN AM 1150 (and online) and the CJI at Charlo game on KZIN 96...
We had to sort through a pile of nominations to pick our male athlete of the week, on the female side, just one nomination, but still a quality pick.
After sorting through that pile, we could not deny the numbers put up by Heart Butte senior Chasen Kipp, who broke the state record in yards rushing (again) with 592 yards and eight touchdowns. The talented athlete also caught two touchdown passes and returned a punt 68 yards for a touchdown, for a grand total of eleven. According to the Montana High School Association record book that’s also a state record for total touchdowns in a single game. This second time athlete of the week totaled an inconceivable 717 total yards in Heart Butte’s win over Box Elder 70 to 64.
