KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy athletes of the week not only had strong individual games but also contributed heavily to team imp[rovement and team success.
Our male athlete is six three junior, Brandon Aimsback of Browning who knocked down a season-high and career-high 32 points against Shelby last Friday night. Even though Shelby won the game eventually, Aimsback's play was outstanding and kept the Running Indians in the game throughout. Browning head coach, Mark Magee says Brandon is developing into a real inside presence and is also the team's leading rebounder. Browning came off the loss Friday night and beat a very good Fairfield team by 18 points after having lost to the Eagles in their first meeting by 11. Brandon Aimsback finished with 12 points in that game.
KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy athletes of the week continue to lead their teams to big wins and a spot at the top of the conference standings.
He wasn't the only one, but the play of Cut Bank senior Evan Harrell was big in two key conference victories for the wolves over the weekend. The Cut Bank guard-forward go the wolves off to a quick start against Fairfield with ten points in the first quarter and ended the night with17 in a three-point Cut Bank win. The next night was even better against another one of the 1B's top ranked teams, Rocky Boy. Evan Harrell has been averaging in the high teens, but in the Rocky Boy game he lit it up with six three-pointers and 25 total, his season high. Cut Bank got the one point win in the game 74-73. Harrell is not only an offensive threat, but extremely quick on defense and, along with pressure from his teammates, helps to create a lot of turnovers at the top of the zone.
KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy athletes of the week turned in big performances on the wrestling mat and on the hardwood.
Both of our athletes of the week come from Fairfield where the Lady Eagles continue to be among the top teams in the Northern Division and where the Fairfield/Simms wrestling team had the best local team finish at the Choteau Classic.
KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy athletes were at the top of their game this past weekend and, in fact, have been all season long.
Our male athlete of the week has two tournament victories under his belt now and will be looking for a third at the Choteau Classic this weekend. Senior, Ben Rauscher waltzed through the Cut Bank Invitational at 170 pounds, pinning every opponent on his way to the title. He wrestled to a fourth-place finish at the prestigious CMR Holiday Classic and has now improved his record to 20 and 5. Ben has been a top wrestler throughout his high school career, making it to the state championship match at 152 as a sophomore and again as a junior at 160 pounds last year. Both of those matches came down to the wire before Rauscher lost to two other talented local wrestlers...Jared Vandenbos of Cut Bank in 2014 and Tanner Stone of Choteau last year. Wrestling at 170 pounds this year, of course, the goal is to take his season just one step further.
