Five Three Forks High School senior basketball players were recently recognized for their efforts during the 2019-20 season,

Micaiah Hauser and Dustin Dalke were both named to the 5B District All-State and All-Conference teams. Not only were they the two top scorers in 5B, but the two also played during the postseason with significant injuries.

Hauser found out last week Dalke had refractured his fibula and it was worse than when he injured it late in the regular season.

"He battled and played for two weeks on a fractured fibula. That's' some heart right there," he said.

Hauser added that Micaiah who dislocated a finger during the district tournament was also playing at state with a broken bone in his hand.

"Great kids with heart that you just don't find anywhere," he said.

Zach Pitcher was named second-team all-conference.

Following a win at state over Deer Lodge, Hauser said praised the play of Pitcher including two late fourth-quarter threes to lead the Wolves to a lead.

"He's hit big shot after big shot for us. He hit the game-winner at Manhattan Christian. He's a gamer," Hauser said.

For the girls team, standout guard Kendall Lynn was named first-team all-conference and Breanna Bloch was named to the second team. Lynn finished sixth in the league in scoring with 9.6 points a game and Block was 11th with 8.5.

Following the conference tournament, Head Coach Mike Sauvageau praised the play of the two seniors. He said the team has had a lot of different players step up during the season but lauded the effort and play every game from Lynn and Bloch. He said even when Bloch is not scoring, she always rebounds and plays good defense for the team. He said Lynn is the main ball handler for Three Forks and even the nights she does not score a lot the effort and intensity are there.
