Winnett-Grass Range Girls Divisional Champs Head To State “C”!

So just how tough is it for a class “C” team to qualify for the state basketball tournament?  Well we have 83 teams and only 8 make it to the big show!   Let me give you an example just how difficult this is, the Belt girls the two -time defending state champs went 24-1 this season and they did not get in!

Of the eight teams competing this weekend in Butte five have never won.  Those five include Froid/Lake, Twin Bridges, Ekalaka, Plentywood and Winnett-Grass Range.  Just four years ago at their last trip to state Winnett-Grass Range placed fourth.   Then two weeks ago this team won the very competitive Northern Divisional.  That Northern “C” included the top two ranked teams in the state in Belt and Box Elder.

Listen to this interview with long time Winnett-Grass Range girls coach Vic Westphal.
