Three Forks Voice - Connect With Your Community!

EDITORIAL: Cheeks in the Seats: Make the trip to Belgrade


February 13, 2019

In small towns across America there may not be anything that brings the community together in unison more than high school sports.

Whether it be a huge crowd under the Friday Night Lights or a rivalry basketball game, the sporting events are a rallying cry that give residents an opportunity to not only support the school, but to have a sense of pride in their town.

This week the two high school basketball teams will be traveling to Belgrade to participate in the 5B District Tournament. While Three Forks is always represented well both at home and on the road, it would be wonderful to see a huge crowd at this week's tournament.

This is my first year covering the athletic teams at Three Forks High School, but I am no stranger to either program. I have watched the teams play quite a bit since moving to Montana four years ago and it has been a great experience to be able to watch the kids multiple times in 2018-19.

Three Forks seniors Dallas Cooper and Kaeson Long wait for the rebound in action last week against Columbus. The Wolves will next play Friday at the District Tournament at the Belgrade Events Center.

Not only are there a group of talented kids playing this season, they are also class acts off the court and that is just as important.

In last week's Voice, boys head coach Terry Hauser had some amazing quotes about the seniors on his team and not only was it a great tribute, it is something the community should be very proud of. This team represents the school the right way and that is all you can ask for. They also happen to be very very good.

The girls team also leads by example on and off the court. The program has witnessed a lot of success especially with last year's state title, but what is even more impressive is the way they conduct themselves.

This great group of kids and some high level coaches deserve huge crowds this week.

It's only 22 miles from Three Forks to Belgrade, so there aren't many excuses to not get out and fill the gym.
