Frenzy Part 2 - Capital Versus Sentinel Preview, 1/31

February 1st has been circled on the Capital Lady Bruins calenders for a long time. That's because it's their first chance to play Sentinel since losing in the State Championship to the Spartans. And the lessons they learned won't soon be forgotten.

"It was sad that we lost and stuff," said Bruins Senior Michaela Dowdy. "But it motivates and pushes us every practice so that we can beat them this time."

"It was hard seeing that go down for our seniors last year," said Bruins Senior Sierra Bignell. "but this year it would be really nice to get a win and would probably get our confidence up for state this year definitely."

With those state aspirations very much alive, the man with the best seat in the house, head coach Bill Pilgeram, sees the fire in his team's eyes this season and thinks their ready to tackle their biggest demons.

"Our seniors and everything are very focused and very determined," said Pilgeram. "I see a very look of determination and aggressiveness and saying it's time. And that's spreading to the younger girls and they're just practice hard and chomping at the bit."

And while Capital is chomping at the bit on the other side, Sentinel head coach Karen Deden may be ready for a nap when after this game is over

"Usually ends up being a really tight game, and a fun game," said Deden. "Unfortunately for us they've played in more of them so they're more experienced right now. Which that scares me that's why I'm up at 4 am watching film."

"We're just excited again to see where we're at in the season," said Sentinel Senior Olivia Roberts. "And they're good competition. It's going to be a fun game and we know a lot of those girls on that team."

Friendships aside, round one of the girls state championship rematch should be a slug out.

On the boys side, top ranked Capital will be traveling to 2nd ranked Sentinel tomorrow to take on the Spartans. That game tips at 4p.m. in Missoula. The Spartans were handed their first league loss of the season, an upset last night at Helena High. But a win tomorrow over Capital ties the two teams atop the Western Conference standings.

    The city of Helena is looking to reconstruct two chaotic five-point intersections. They're so chaotic, they've even earned the  term malfunction junction. No one has been hit in either area this year. However, long wait times encourage some people to jay walk. Plus, the cross walks can be very confusing.   "They aren't extremely dangerous right now because the amount of traffic.

    It's a feat accomplished by only a select few. Our Bliss Zechman sits down with a pair of adventurous folks trying to make it from one coast to another in a  very unique way. 4,750 miles of paddling and portaging in 220 days. That's how far Martin Trahan  and Jillian Brown will have gone by the time their cross-oceanic journey ends.
