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.
