During the 48 years since girls, high school basketball started only 9 times has a school won both the girls and boys state championships during the same season. Well, Hardin has now accomplished that rare double twice. Here is the list: Class “A”: Hardin 1995 and 2020 Class “B”: Chinnook 1986, Malta 1996 and again […]
When Fairfield shared the state basketball title they also now share a state record……that is their 10th in boys hoops. The Eagles are in a crowded field along with six others. Dillon, Butte, Helena High, Missoula Sentinel, Great Falls and Bozeman!
This past high school basketball season the Eastern “A” divisional grossed more than $184,000. That puts this event second on my all-time list! The top ten: 2016 Eastern “A” Divisional 2020 Eastern “A” 2017 Eastern “A” 2010 State “AA” 2019 Eastern “A” 2007 State “AA” 2018 Eastern “A” 2014 State “AA” 2017 State “B” 2017 […]
Scobey won the class “C” state title with great defense! During the season 7 times, they held an opponent to less than 30! Scobey went a perfect 25-0 and during those 25 games, oppentants only scored 921 points. When you do the math that comes out to just 36 points a game. Now because of […]
So who had the most impressive state tournament victory? Well, that is easy it’s the Scobey Spartans semi-final win over the defending state champs Manhattan Christian. Scobey was up 31-19 at half time. Then the Spartans had a huge third quarter outscoring the Eagles 27-8. Heading into the 4th the Scobey boys were up by […]
It’s sad that Hellgate and Hardin have to share a state basketball title this year. Those two teams were the very best in their classification. Hellgate: a perfect 23-0, only once did a team come within 10 points of beating them. They were the top-scoring team in “AA” at 69, the best defensive team giving […]
This past season 6-6 Miss Hein was being required by some big-time schools….but Montana State won out. She recently led her Forsyth girls to their first state basketball title and check out her season highs….33 points, 21 rebounds, and 8 blocks. Lindsey still has one more season in Forsyth.
Well in 1943 we did not have a state basketball tournament due to WW 2! Then 101 years ago the 1919 tournament was called off due to a flu epidemic. But that did not go well with some fans. So what they did in 1919 was get the two very best teams Helena and Miles […]
So I’m counting the two-state semi-final games that I announced at the state “AA” as state championship game calls since the winners were declared co-champs. So that puts my list at 25 boys BB games, 21 in girls, 7 in soccer, 8 in track and 20 in football. The total as of today….81!
So I thought calling 16 games from the Super “A” divisional two weeks ago was hectic. Well, it was… then last week I did a ton of games from the Eastern “AA” divisional, but those weeks are a piece of cake to what I have on my schedule this week. Today Monday, March 9, I’m […]
