(HEART BUTTE) – KSEN/K96 – BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE’S OF THE WEEK BOTH HAIL FROM HEART BUTTE THIS WEEK AS THE WARRIORS ARE OFF TO A STRONG START FOR BOTH THE BOYS AND GIRLS TEAM.

THE HEART BUTTE BOYS ARE OFF TO AN UNDEFEATED START AT 4-0 AND WHILE THEY HAVE A TALENTED TEAM WITH A LOT OF DEPTH, ONE OF THE PLAYERS THAT IS REALLY STANDING OUT RIGHT NOW IS SR. SHYLON SPOONHUNTER.

HE’S ALREADY POSTED A 30-POINT GAME AGAINST HARLEM THIS SEASON AND HIT FOR 20 IN THE WARRIORS FIRST CONFERENCE MATCHUP LAST WEEK AGAINST VALIER.   HEART BUTTE HEAD COACH KELLEN HALL SAYS HE LIKES THE CONSISTENCY IN SCORING AS SHYLON AS FOUR 20-PLUS POINT GAMES IN A ROW, BUT SCORING IS NOT HIS ONLY TALENT.    THE SR. GUARD/FORWARD IS AVERAGING ABOUT 3 STEALS PER GAME AND AROUND 5 OR 6 ASSISTS AND REBOUNDS PER GAME.

IN THAT VALIER MATCHUP, 6 REBOUNDS AND 6 ASSISTS ALONG WITH THE 20-POINTS.

THE HEART BUTTE LADY WARRIORS ARE ALSO DEEP, BUT LED BY THE SISTERS ACT OF CHAS’LIN AND CHALISSA KIPP.  THE NOD THIS WEEK GOES TO CHAS’LIN A 5-4 JR. WHO LED THE TEAM WITH A SEASON HIGH 18-POINTS IN THEIR CONFERENCE WIN OVER VALIER.

SHE HAD 2-3—POINT BASKETS IN THE TOTAL BUT MORE IN 2-POINT FIELD GOALS THAT CAME FROM QUICK DRIVES DOWN THE LANE OR A STEAL AND A FAST BREAK LAYUP.

CHAS’LIN IS A VERY SOLID DEFENSIVE PLAYER, PASSES WELL AND DOESN’T LEAVE MUCH DOUBT THAT SHE’S THE LEADER ON THE FLOOR.   THE LADY WARRIORS ARE OFF TO A 3-1 START AND THE OLDER KIPP SISTER HAS BEEN IN DOUBLE FIGURES EACH GAME.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE’S OF THE WEEK SR. SHYLON SPOONHUNTER AND JR. CHAS’LIN KIPP BOTH FROM HEART BUTTE.   OUR 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.
