KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE’S OF THE WEEK SEEM TO BE HITTING THEIR PEAK IN THE FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS AND THE DIVISIONAL VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT, BUT YA NEVER KNOW, THERE MAY BE EVEN GREATER THINGS TO COME.

OUR FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK PLAYED A KEY ROLE IN FAIRFIELD’S ADVANCEMENT TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT. EAGLES HEAD COACH COURTNEY BAKE SAYS SR. OUTSIDE HITTER MADISON ROSENBAUM HAD A BIG TOURNAMENT AT THE NET BUT MAYBE IMPORTANTLY, HER PLAY IN THE BACKCOURT, WHERE SHE PICKED UP 82 DIGS AND LED THE TEAM WITH THE BEST SERVE/RECEIVE PERCENTAGE.

COACH BAKE SAYS MADISON “ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE,” AND HAS A TREMENDOUS KNACK FOR READING WHERE THE BALL IS HEADED.

IN ADDITION TO THE DEFENSE, SHE DID KNOCK DOWN 47 KILLS AND 9 ACES AND FAIRFIELD ONE OF ONLY TWO TEAMS THAT MADE IT ON TO STATE.

WE ALSO HAD GREAT NOMINATIONS FOR MADISON UNDERDAL WHO HAD 88 KILLS IN THE 5 MATCHES THAT SHELBY PLAYED AND SHELBY SO. JORI CLARY WHO BECAME A REAL LEADER, SHOWED A HUGE DESIRE TO WIN, EVEN AFTER AN INJURY LATE IN THE TOURNAMENT AND CAME UP WITH SOME IMPRESSIVE NUMBERS, ESPECIALLY IN THE FAIRFIELD MATCH WITH 8 KILLS, 14 DIGS AND 5 ACES.

OUR MALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK WAS MAYBE WHAT SPORTS FANS WOULD CALL A “NO BRAINER.” WHILE SHELBY HAD AN UNFORGETTABLE TEAM EFFORT AGAINST PARK CITY, JR. CAMERON BRUSVEN RULED THE DAY WITH 7 TOUCHDOWNS AND 230 YARDS RUSHING.

AND THE SUCCESS WAS NOT ONLY ON OFFENSE, CAMERON RECORDED 15 TACKLES ON DEFENSE AND HAD ONE INTERCEPTION. HIS KICKING ABILITY IS A TRUE ICING ON THE CAKE FOR THE COYOTES. ON THE DAY HE BOOTED 7 EXTRA POINTS, KICKED 5 TOUCHBACKS ON KICKOFFS AND HAD ONE SUCCESSFUL ON-SIDE KICK. CAMERON IS A TREMENDOUS ATHLETE BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING, TO ME, HE JUST LOOKS LIKE HE’S HAVING A LOT OF FUN. HEAD COACH MIKE WHITE AGREES AND SAYS IT’S HARD TO OVERLOOK A PERFORMANCE LIKE THAT ONE.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE ‘s OF THE WEEK, SR. MADISON ROSEMBAUM OF FAIRFIELD AND JR. CAMERON BRUSVEN OF SHELBY. THE 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.
