LOCAL SPORTS – “ATHLETE OF THE WEEK”

(UNDATED) – Our KSEN/K96—Bozeman Trophy Athlete’s of the Week have been key figures in their team’s success all season long but even stepped it up another notch in this past week’s performance.

Female Athlete of the Week honors go to Choteau Sr. Emma Gunderson.  Gunderson, along with a talented group of teammates, have taken Choteau to an undefeated conference record and close to undefeated overall.

In the highly anticicpated match against Townsend, who had beaten the Bulldogs in a short match in a pre-season Tournament, Choteau was able to pull out the 1st set 25-21.  They lost the 2nd but then blew them out in game 3 and game 4.  In the match Gunderson threw up 5 aces, knocked down an amazing 18 kills and dug up 9 balls off the floor.

Choteau also won the Mid-Season Tournament in Choteau and Gunderson played strong again with at least one pressure kill late in the match against Jefferson County who they had lost to earlier but came back to defeat in the Championship match.

Also nominated this week, Ella Stott, the Choteau setter who had 35 assists, 3 aces and 3 digs and Addisyn Harrell a key front row player in conference wins over Conrad and Fairfield.

Male Athlete of the Week honors go to Browning So. Running back Tommy Running Rabbitt who led the Indians to their 2nd win in a row, a tough 34-32 victory over Ronan.  Browning Head Coach Jerry Racine said there were a couple of big performances but Running Rabbitt drove the train carrying the ball 17 times for 190-yards and one Touchdown.

Running Rabbitt also had two previous big games with 2 scores in a loss to Stevensville and 3 touchdown runs in Browning’s win over E. Helena.

Congratulations to our KSEN/K96—Bozeman Trophy Athlete’s of the Week, Sr. Emma Gunderson of Choteau and So. Tommy Running Rabbit of Browning.
