Three Forks to recognize seniors


February 12, 2020

During their careers with the Three Forks High School girls basketball program, the five senior class members have been part of a great deal of success with three consecutive trips to the state tournament, three consecutive 5B District championships, and a state title in March of 2018.

The senior class which includes Erin Welter, Kendall Lynn, Breanna Bloch, Peyton Page, and McKenzie Feddes were freshmen when Mike Sauvageau returned to coaching for the 2016-17 season and he has high praise for the group.

"They have been a great crew and they have been great role models for the basketball program. They have put in the work and they are a great group of girls to be around," he said.

The five will be recognized before the last home game of the season Friday night against Deer Lodge. The Wolves (8-8, 5-5 Southern B) will wrap up their regular season Saturday at Columbus.

In action last week, Three Forks fell 46-35 Friday at Manhattan and 46-41 Saturday at home against Townsend.

The Tigers came out strong Friday and would take a 33-23 lead into halftime.

Sauvageau said Manhattan had been in a lot of games this season and they were able to get up on his team early.

Kendall Lynn led the team with seven, Ashlyn Swenson had six, Bloch and Page each had five, Keaton Lynn finished with four, Feddes added three, and Lily Jones and Kinzee Howey both finished with two.

Three Forks started in positive fashion against Townsend taking an 11-9 at the end of the first quarter and a 27-20 lead into halftime. The Wolves were unable to score in the third quarter and the Bulldogs tied the game at 27. They outscored Three Forks 19-14 in the final quarter.

Sauvageau said much like a recent home game against Big Timber they played well early, but it is really hard when you don't score for a quarter.

Kendall Lynn led the team with eight points, Keaton Lynn had eight, Bloch finished with five, Jones and Howey added four, Swenson finished with three, and Welter and Feddes each added two points.

Looking to this week's game, Sauvageau is looking forward to the home matchup against Deer Lodge but they have to get the ball in the basket or they will be in the same situation they were in last week.
