LOCAL SPORTS – “ATHLETE OF THE WEEK”

(UNDATED) – KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE’S OF THE WEEK PLAYED BIG ROLES IN HELPING THEIR TEAMS ADVANCE TO DIVISIONAL TOURNAMENTS FROM THE DISTRICTS LAST WEEKEND.

OUR FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK POURED IT ON WHEN THE CJI LADY HAWKS NEEDED IT MOST IN THE 9C DISTRICT LAST SATURDAY.   HEAD COACH JERRY KULPAS SAYS WITH ALL THE ADVERSITY THE TEAM HAS FACED THIS YEAR, SOMEBODY HAD TO STEP IT UP AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT SO. KARRIN HARMON DID.

IN THE GAME AGAINST NORTHSTAR TO DETERMINE WHO WOULD MOVE ON TO DIVISIONAL PLAY, HARMON CAME UP WITH A HUGE 23 POINTS ON 7-3-POINT SHOTS.

KULPAS SAYS HARMON WAS STEADY THROUGHOUT THE TOURNAMENT AND HAS DEVELOPED AS A TEAM LEADER ON A TEAM BASICALLY LOADED WITH SOPHOMORES AND FRESHMAN.   HARMON ALWAYS DRAWS THE TOUGHEST DEFENSIVE ASSIGNMENT AND IS ONE OF THE TEAM’S TOP TWO REBOUNDERS.   CJI BEAT NORTHSTAR 49-43 TO ADVANCE TO THE NORTHERN C DIVISIONAL.

ALSO NOMINATED FOR THE GIRLS HONOR THIS WEEK, CONRAD SR. EMILY HARWOOD WHO SCORED 22-POINTS IN THE COWGIRLS FINAL GAME AGAINST ROCKY BOY SAT.

OUR MALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK HAD A CHAMPIONSHIP GAME PERFORMANCE THAT HAS ALMOST BECOME COMMONPLACE FOR CHOTEAU SR. DYLAN PANNABECKER.

THE CHOTEAU SR. SCORED 23 POINTS IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME WIN OVER FAIRFIELD.    THE POINTS INCLUDED 4-8 FROM THE FREE THROW LINE AND 3-6 FROM BEYOND THE 3-POINT LINE, BUT IT WASN’T ONLY OFFENSE….HE LED THE TEAM WITH 8 REBOUNDS, 5 OF THEM ON THE OFFENSIVE BOARDS AND ALSO HAD 6 ASSISTS.

DYLAN PANNABECKER IS A BIG PART OF THE CHOTEAU MACHINE THAT WON THE STATE B CHAMPIONSHIP LAST YEAR WITH AN UNDEFEATED 26-0 RECORD AND HAS RUN OFF 20 STRAIGHT VICTORIES THIS SEASON.
