Size and speed will clash Saturday night in Laurel, and that could be the cognitive factor in determining who wins the 68th Montana East-West Shrine Game.
Tucker Yates won the state shot put title his senior year.
MILES CITY -- Troy Purcell called it “an honor and a privilege” to be selected as coach of the Montana football all-stars in the 21st Knights of Columbus Badlands Bowl, but the perks that come with the job are just as inviting.
The 2014 state track and field meets have some big footsteps to follow.
Colstrip's Tucker Yates won the boys shot put at the Southern B divisional track meet and Joliet's Tru Roginske ran a state-best 12.45 in the girls 100-meter dash.
Seth Bayles’ approach when he settled into the blocks for the 100-meter dash was simple.
At various points this season, three Southern B throwers have held Montana’s best mark in the shot put.
Some people break records and bask in it. Others, like Billings Senior’s Morgan Sulser, aren’t satisfied.

Twenty years is a long time to wait. For Colstrip, it was worth it.
Tucker Yates and his Colstrip teammates cruised to the State B team wrestling title. Rico Stormer of Circle won the first ever individual state championship for the Circle wrestling program.

Tucker Yates wrestles heavyweight for Colstrip.
This is not a kinder, gentler Tucker Yates. Just a more technical version. The Colstrip heavyweight can’t curtail the pain of a torn pectoral muscle he suffered early in December, so he’s adjusting accordingly.
COLSTRIP — Colstrip had six individual champions Saturday to outscore three-time defending State B-C champion Forsyth in the Eastern B-C divisional wrestling tournament.
To some extent, the Colstrip Colts surprised even themselves over the weekend at the Forsyth Matador Invitational wrestling tourney.
Bainville distance runner Chance Hyatt, who has Class C’s fastest times this season in the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs, knows his top competition at the state meet well.
Earlier in the week, I outlined five local storylines for the upcoming track and field season. I focused mostly on the Billings schools, so now I’m going to try to broaden my list to include Class B and C athletes.
