  •   As always, the Dillon Beaver football program opens the fall with the intent on reloading and making yet another run at a Montana Class "A" football championship.  This year though, the reloading reaches all the way to the top.  Hall of Fame coach Terry Thomas resigned in the spring and his longtime assistant Rick...

  •   The University of Montana Western volleyball team held their first practice on Aug. 8, determined to prove that their no. 8 preseason ranking in the Frontier Conference doesn’t reflect the true quality of their team.   The Lady Bulldogs open their 2013 season by heading to Spokane on Thursday for the Red Lion Cascade-Frontier...
