FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK HONORS GO TO BROWNING JR. TAYLOR JORDAN WHO, HEAD COACH RAY AUGARE SAYS “HAS REALLY COME ON AS A LEADER, COMPARED TO A YEAR AGO.”  SHE IS ONE OF A HANDFUL OF TALENTED PLAYERS WHO HAVE DEVELOPED WITH COACH AUGARE FROM THEIR FRESHMAN YEAR TO NOW.

THE LADY INDIANS CAME UP WITH 3 STRAIGHT WINS OUT OF THE CHRISTMAS BREAK…..FRI. NIGHT AGAINST CUT BANK, SAT. NIGHT AGAINST LIBBY AND MON. NIGHT AGAINST SHELBY.   JORDAN LED THE TEAM WITH 21 IN THE CUT BANK GAME AND ADDED 3 STEALS, 6 ASSISTS AND 3 REBOUNDS.  SHE SCORED 13 AGAINST LIBBY AND 10 AGAINST SHELBY.

THE LADY INDIANS HAVE GOTTEN THEMSELVES OFF TO A 4-0 CONFERENCE START AND 6-1 OVERALL RECORD.  TAYLOR JORDAN, WITH EXCELLENT PASSING SKILLS, QUICK HANDS ON DEFENSE AND GOOD SPEED, IS A BIG PART OF THE REASON FOR THAT SUCCESS.

OUR MALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEKIS SR. KADE LECK OF SHELBY.   AS HIS NOMINATOR PUT IT, KADE HAD AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE AGAINST CHOTEAU FRI. NIGHT AND IT WAS JUST DOWNRIGHT HEROICS ON MON. NIGHT.

COACH TOM REYNOLDS SAYS LECK IS ALWAYS AN AGGRESSIVE-HARD NOSED PLAYER COMING OFF THE BENCH AND WHEN HE COMES OFF THE BENCH AND STARTS HITTIN THE LONG SHOTS, IT’S A HUGE IMPACT FOR THE TEAM.

HE DID EXACTLY THAT IN THE CHOTEAU GAME FRIDAY NIGHT, NAILING 5-3’S FOR 15 POINTS. IN THE BROWNING GAME ON MON. NIGHT LECK ALSO ENDED WITH 15 POINTS, WITH ONE OF THE 3-POINTERS KEEPING THE COYOTES CHANCES ALIVE AND SENDING THE GAME TO THE 2ND OT.  IN THE 3RD OT SHELBY WAS DOWN 2 WITH JUST SECONDS LEFT AND WHO ELSE BUT KADE LECK HIT THE BOMB AND SHELBY WON IN THE 3RD OT 78-77.

KADE WAS ALSO AN OUTSTANDING MEMBER OF THE COYOTE FOOTBALL TEAM THAT WENT ALL THE WAY TO THE STATE B CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.   HE WAS A 2ND TEAM ALL-CONFERENCE MIDDLE LINEBACKER AND CENTER ON OFFENSE.    HE WAS THE LONG SNAPPER FOR ALL THOSE WYATT BRUSVEN GAME-WINNING FIELD GOALS AND EXTRA POINTS.
