Denton-Geyser-Stanford Celebrates First State Title as Co-op

Posted: Updated:

For the 13th and final time this season, the last few seconds ticking off the clock yet again signaled victory for the DGS Bearcats.
"Singing Fight Song"
But this time, instead of taking another step toward achieving their goal of winning a state title, the Bearcats had accomplished it.

"It feels pretty great, this is what we've dreamed of and now it's here... It's almost a surreal feeling," Senior quarterback Kendall Carpenter exclaimed.  

Four years in the making, the senior class had finally done it.
"Nice job guys."

Rebounding from a loss in the title game as sophomores to Highwood-Geraldine, then losing the next year to Westby-Grenora in the semis. This season, it was injuries and a championship caliber Box Elder team that could have toppled the Bearcats dreams of winning that elusive state title.

"Just knowing that, it wasn't easy and we felt we earned it that way. We dealt with injuries, we dealt with adversity and we came through it and now we're here and we are state champs so that just makes it feel like we earned it, makes it that much sweeter," Carpenter says.
"The North, it prepped us for this. We had to play a lot of tough games throughout the year and I think that was a lot of different than around the state. There is just great football around Central Montana and I'm glad we got to share this game today with our friends from Box Elder. First class group of kids and coaches and I'm just glad they were part of this as well," DGS head coach Scott Sparks says.

Denton and Geyser had both won multiple state titles, but never before in Stanford, or as a Co-op which will be this groups lasting legacy.       

"That's awesome. This senior class is the first year of the Co-op and we were able to come here and kind of bring it together, bring the first state championship ever to the town of Stanford, I think the fourth to Denton and the third to Geyser, it's just an awesome feeling and we love it." Senior Conner Bokma says.

Time has indeed run out on the 2015 football season. and for the first time, DGS is OK with that because the Bearcats are state champs
