  • Pioneers Fall to Froid/Medicine Lake 42 -26

    Thomas Dilworth|Nov 11, 2020

    It's hard to find the right words to express the wide range of emotions felt Saturday in Medicine Lake as the Pioneer's championship hopes came to an end in a devastating loss to Froid/Medicine Lake. The Pioneers got off to a great start with Brady Plenninger striping the ball on the Redhawks first possession before Kade Strutz would rush in from 4 yards out the put the Pioneers up 6-0. Again the Pioneers would force another fumble and recovery on the next possession. Still, uncharacteristic pen...

    Adversity builds character, it's a simple truth, and if you had the privilege to watch this weekend's football game, you witnessed that firsthand as the Pioneers pushed past the visiting Bridger Scouts 36 – 12. In what felt like a real-life version of the movie "Groundhogs Day," the Pioneers took the field the begin their playoff run with another Proulx hobbled on the sideline. Senior Parker Proulx suffered a season-ending knee injury on the second play of the game during last week's win over W...

    Big Sandy made quick work of North Star, Saturday afternoon in Rudyard, beating the hometown Knights 42 -7. Overall it was a solid day of football for the Pioneers with Seniors setting the tone and young leaders like Kody Strutz stepping up big with flashes of greatness.

    Thomas Dilworth|Oct 30, 2019

    Big Sandy 35, Power-Dutton-Brady 0 It was a bitterly cold day this past Saturday up in Dutton, Montana, as the Pioneers shut out Power-Dutton-Brady 35 – 0 to capture the 6-man North Title and move one step closer to competing for the State 6man Championship. It took the Pioneers a full quarter of football to get warmed up and gain some traction, but that will happen when you’re playing in 3 inches of freshly fallen snow. It seemed as if the “Gator” clearing the snow off the field during timeouts and in-between quarters was clearing a path fo...

    Thomas Dilworth|Aug 28, 2019

    You say tomato, I say tamot or in this case, you draw a tomato, I draw a tamoto. As Big Sandy High School's new art teach Monika Winderl explains it, "We all have different levels of ability it doesn't mean we don't have potential. The Tomato I draw may look very different from the tomato you might draw but, that doesn't mean it's not a tomato". These are the kind of beliefs that guide her teaching style. She tries to look for the potential in each of her students as she pushes them to step...
