Missoula Hellgate distance runner Adam Peterman had a big week recently, winning the 3,200 meters at the Russ Pilcher Western Montana Top 10 meet at Missoula County Stadium. The junior won the event in 9:37.77, which is the third best time in the state behind the two crazy-nasty marks set by Kalispell phenom’s Zach Perrin and Troy Fraley at the Arcadia Invite. Peterman also won the 5k at the 40th Riverbank Run on Saturday in downtown Missoula.
Missoula Big Sky catcher Jesse Schafer clubbed a walk-off three-run home run to beat crosstown rival Hellgate 6-4 at McEnaney Field last Tuesday (April 24). It was the first game-winning home run of Schafer’s high school career.
