(Undated) –Our KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy male Athlete of the Week saved his best for last at the State Track meet last weekend and our female Athlete of the Week was just consistently “very good,” all season long.

Our male Athlete sent the Cut Bank crowd into a frenzy when his final attempt at the triple jump became his best jump ever and won him his second straight State B Title in that event.

Sr. Bauer Seewald’s jump of 45’6” was more than 2-feet more than his previous winning mark and since he already had the event won, he told “there was no pressure and I just let it fly.”  Cut Bank fans had set up their tents right beside the Triple Jump pit and they let out a roar when he landed even before knowing the official measurement.  Seewald’s effort also led the Cut Bank Boys Team to a top 10 finish as he also picked up 6 more points with a 3rd place finish in the High Jump at 6’2”.

Our female Athlete of the Week had an excellent season all year long for the Conrad/Choteau Cowdogs who finished 3rd in the Divisional Tournament and advanced on to State.

Head Coach Tyson Anderson says Jr. catcher Katie Stokes was a 1st team All-Conference and All-State selection at the end of the season. Her offensive numbers speak for themselves but Coach Anderson pointed out that she’s an excellent defensive catcher.  He notes that she threw out a runner at second base that ended the game in the Divisional that qualified them for State.  She threw out another runner in the State Tournament and the fact is, that just doesn’t happen that much in H.S. softball.

On the offensive side Katie hit .490 for the season, had 51 hits for a school record and scored 46 runs with 14 doubles, 4-triples and 2 Homeruns.   Maybe most impressive, in 116 at bats, Stokes struck out only 5 times all season.

Also considered again this week, Sunburst So. Claire Bucklin who finished 2nd at the State Meet in both hurdles events with a personal best in both events.

Congratulations to our KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy Athlete’s of the Week, Sr. Bauer Seewald of Cut Bank and Jr. Katie Stokes of Conrad.  These are our final two Athlete’s of the Week for the 2021-22 season and we’ll continue in the fall.  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.
