Young Scarlet throwers place in TNT meet

FRENCHTOWN — With most of their upperclassmen teammates taking the ACTs Saturday, the younger Arlee track stars had a test of their own at the Frenchtown TNT track meet Saturday and they passed with flying colors. Sophomore Becca Nelson finished fourth in the javelin and discus, improving on last week’s mark in both events. Nelson broke the century mark in the javelin with a throw of 103 feet, 1 inch. The throw was about seven feet shorter than her personal best throw at the district track meet last year, but an improvement from her 97 feet, 11 inches from last week. “...We got 100. That’s what we were going for,” Arlee coach Russell Baker.  Ne...

Six Arlee tracksters place in first meet

MISSOULA — With very few practices behind them a young Scarlet squad scored 26 points to finish in eighth-place in the 15-team field and the Warriors had two individual athletes and two relay teams place at the first track meet of the season. With dark, snow clouds threatening most the day at the Ji...

Final four

Undersized and underestimated, the Warriors made the improbable at the Class C State Championship not only seem imaginable, but expected as they became one of only four teams out of the 88 Class C teams that started the season to play Saturday night at the Billings MetraPark Rimrock Auto Arena. Though the...

Sweet revenge

The story for the Warriors at the Western C Divisional Tournament was the same as last year, but this year they made sure to rewrite the ending — an ending that is still unfinished. At the Maroon Activities Center in Butte last week, the Warriors followed an identical path from last year to a challe...

Warriors finish season perfect in conference

ARLEE — The Warriors wrapped up a perfect conference season in their inaugural year in District 14-C with a 72-39 walkover-victory against the Noxon Red Devils Saturday. In his final home game, Kody Morigeau led the Warriors with 21 points. Morigeau scored 17 points in the first meeting against the ...

Scarlets stopped by cold shooting in pair of losses

ARLEE — The Scarlets will enter the District 14-C Tournament on a five-game losing streak after a pair of losses last week, but their coach isn’t too worried. “It’s not the best, but we’re OK, we just didn’t shoot well for some reason, but that’s the name of the g...

Taking care of business

When Cole Rice sunk in the cross-body scissor hold on Townsend’s Shay Christiansen, he knew the 140-pound Class B-C Montana Championship was his long before the referee slammed his hand on the mat. The state championship was something the Arlee junior had been working toward for 10 years and somethi...

Vikings swept by Warriors

ARLEE — The Charlo Vikings will have one more week to try to figure out the Arlee Warriors. After having a four-game win streak stopped by Thompson Falls in a 61-48 loss to the Bluehawks in Charlo Thursday, the Vikings tried to use their size-advantage and slow the game down against the Warriors in ...

Warriors sink the Vikings, clinch District 14-C

ARLEE — With their usually fast-paced, high-flying offense taking a night off, the Warriors turned to their defense to clinch the District 14-C regular season championship. With the Charlo Vikings trying to slow the game down and on a night where their shots weren’t falling for them, the Warri...

Scarlets succumb to district's top teams

ARLEE — The Scarlets couldn’t stand up to the pressure of the district’s two best teams last week. The young Scarlet squad committed 26 turnovers in a 46-27 loss to the district-leading Savage Heat in Hot Springs Thursday and 25 turnovers in a 52-23 loss to the Charlo Lady Vikings in Arl...
