KSEN/K96 - Bozeman Trophy Athletes of the Week can head into the Christmas Break knowing that they have some very positive accomplishments to build on in the New Year.

Our female Athlete of the Week is one of the talented young players invading the Shelby Coyotes Basketball and Wrestling programs. Freshman Forward Addison Richman wasn't in the Coyotes starting lineup Friday night against Conrad and Conrad was definitely winning the battle early. Enter Richman and she immediately hit two shots in the 1st quarter that seemed to give the whole team confidence.

She stayed on the floor for a big part of the rest of the game and ended with 14 points that included 2 - 3-point shots. She scored in every quarter except the 4th when Shelby pretty much had the game sewed up. The Coyotes had a really balanced scoring attack that night with Adele Lamb popping in 13 and Jori Clary and Cami Blevins adding 11 and 12.

Shelby Coach Mac McDermott said Richman had an excellent game against Rocky Boy Saturday night as well and the Coyotes recorded another win.

Our Male Athlete of the Week wasn't the highest local finisher or even Cut Bank finisher at the CMR Holiday Classic, but Wolves Head Coach Cody Fetters says he's the one who has really made some great strides forward the past two weeks and a 6th place finish at the CMR Holiday Classic is a big deal in the massive tournament.

Heavyweight Sr. Ethan Sullivan has really worked his butt off in the past two weeks, according to Fetters and it's paying off. In addition to the "place" at CMR, he won the heavyweight Championship in Glasgow the week before, defeating among others, a Class A State finalist from Miles City.

Congratulations to our KSEN/K96 - Bozeman Trophy Athletes of the Week, Fr. Addison Richman of Shelby and Sr. Ethan Sullivan of Cut Bank. The Athlete of the Week is sponsored locally by McDonald's in Cut Bank. McDonald's honors our Athletes with two free value meals each.

KSEN encourages parents, coaches and all fans to nominate Athletes of the Week if you feel they have accomplished above average performances. Email: markdaniels@townsquaremedia.com
