KSEN/K96 – Bozeman trophy Athletes of the week are well known for their accomplishments in volleyball, football and basketball and now getting the job done on the track and on the courts.

Our female athlete of the week is Cut Bank senior Dakota Dosch who is participating in both tennis and track this season, and I can only imagine what kind of maneuvering it took to get from the tennis courts in Havre and back to the track for the shot put last weekend, but once she got there she competed very well. Dosch has been dominant on the tennis courts so far this season, sporting a 10-0 record and two championships under her belt. She won the Havre Invitational championship Saturday defeating teammate Paige Johnson 6-1, 6-1. On the track, in the shot put, Dakota had enough energy left to throw the steel ball 29-ft, 6 and a half inches. Dosch has been a superior athlete all season long, named to the 1B district first team all-conference volleyball team and first team all-conference and all-state basketball team.

Our male athlete of the week was outstanding starter on the Fairfield state championship football team and a starter on the basketball team. Fairfield junior Cantor Coverdell, in fact was a first team all-conference, all-state selection as a receiver on offense and linebacker on defense. On the track this spring, Coverdell is using those physical abilities, primarily in field events. At last weekend’s Havre Invitational he won the triple jump, the discus and finished third in the javelin. It all helped Fairfield to the team championship at the meet.

Congratulations to our KSEN/K96 – Bozeman trophy Athletes of the week, senior Dakota Dosch of Cut Bank and junior Cantor Coverdell of Fairfield. 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.

A reminder that our Athlete of the Year banquet is coming up on Wednesday, May 11th at 6:30 pm the Coyote Club in Shelby. Invitations to all of our Athletes of the Week will be in the mail this week.
