  •   The Lady Beaver volleyball team earned its first conference match win of the season in Hamilton on Saturday, after falling to Belgrade and Butte Central earlier in the week. Dillon opened their 2014 conference season last Tuesday by hosting Belgrade. Always a tough team to beat, Belgrade also became one of the bigger teams in the state with...
  • Saturday’s Anaconda Invitational cross country meet turned out to be a good opportunity for Dillon runners to open the throttle and trim times.

  •     To the citizens of Beaverhead County,   We want to encourage you to begin a grassroots movement to bring a non-discrimination ordinance (NDO) to vote in your town.

  •   The Dillon boys placed four golfers in the top ten on their way to claiming the team title and defending their home turf at last Friday’s 2014 Beaverhead Invitational, which featured players from five schools competing on the Beaverhead Golf Course. Parker Love again led BCHS, shooting a 39 on both the front and back nines to become...
