The Bridger boys and girls teams finished 2017 with impressive victories against Broadview Lavina and Absarokee last week.
The boys defeated Absarokee 64-29 and Lavina 71-41 leaving the boys with a healthy 4-1 record this year.
The girls tamed Absarokee 32-19 and Lavina 43-16 giving them a 3-2 record so far this season.
Against Lavina the girls took command early in the game, going in at the half 20-14 to the good. Lavina fought back in the second half, outscoring Bridger but the Lady Scouts slow and steady approach paid dividends. Collecting the points for the Scouts were Jessica Adkins 20, Desiree Jones 9, Emily Adkins 8, Serena Oyler 4, Jenna Kallevig 2.
The Bridger boys had 47 points in the bag against Lavina before the half time buzzer had gone and although the Scouts let up the pressure in the second half, Lavina could only huff and puff their way to 40 points total.
Scoring for Bridger were Colter Zentner 24, Kolton Pospisil 9, Russell Zentner 2, Carson Roberts 16, Colby Zentner 6, Jake Kallevig 4, Kalen Pospisil 10.
