Record keeping among high school athletics in Montana is an inexact science. In fact, there’s little scientific about it. Often times outstanding performances get lost in the fray and are never reported or officially recognized in the Montana High School Association record book.
Such was the case for a boys’ basketball game played 15 years ago.
The Missoulian has launched a new sports app for mobile devices to help area high school sports fans get all their coverage from one place.
Not only does the Western Montana Sports App keep you up to date on your schools’ sports programs, but the Missoulian is also giving away a few prizes in conjunction with the app’s launch.
By this point everybody has heard the news of Montana men’s basketball coach Wayne Tinkle’s recent hire by Oregon State.
Tinkle takes a winning history to a Beavers program hoping to do much more of that in the not-so distant future. But will he also take his son, current Missoula Hellgate junior and big-time prospect Tres, with him?
A scheduled football doubleheader at Missoula County Stadium this Friday has been broken up.
The Missoula Hellgate Knights, slated to take on Billings Senior at 4 p.m. at the city’s high school football complex, will instead compete inside the home of the University of Montana Grizzlies. Hellgate will kick off at Washington-Grizzly Stadium on the UM campus at 7 p.m.
It’s homecoming week for the Knights and coach R.L. Boyles wanted Hellgate to get the true homecoming experience, said Lynn Farmer, the school’s assistant principal and athletic director. That meant a night game. And what better venue than Wa-Griz to provide it.
