KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy Athletes of the Week were huge factors in helping their teams advance in the playoffs and both are from Fairfield this week.
Some hitters in volleyball may take half a season to pile up 49 kills, it took Eagles' middle hitter, Natalie Klinker just one day. Klinker's play led the Eagles to a third-place win over Shelby and then a grueling three to two win over Choteau in the first championship of the Northern B Divisional tournament last weekend. Fairfield also took Choteau to a full five games in the second championship before losing three to two. Klinker had an amazing 21 kills in that first championship and17 in the second. She also recorded ten blocks in the three matches. Fairfield coach Courtney Bake says it really has been just the past two weeks that Klinker has started hitting solid and making great contact, just in time for tournaments. The all-state basketball and volleyball player is a talented athlete who not only jumps well to be able to drive down on the ball, coach Bake points out that she is "quick too".

KSEN/K96 Bozeman Trophy Athletes of the week both played big roles in advancing their teams one step further in the postseason. When I asked the coach of our female athlete of the week, what she does especially well on the floor, she answered, "Everything".
North Toole County Head Volleyball coach Kourtney Pace was referring to her senior captain, Katara Ryan, who led the Refiners to a third place finish in the 6C West District Tournament and an advancement to the Northern C Divisional. That, after a fifth place seed heading into the tournament. Ryan plays in every rotation and had especially good overall numbers against two of the best in the district with eleven kills, three blocks and nine digs against Valier and eleven kills and five blocks against the eventual champion Simms Tigers. Coach Pace also told us that Katara is serving at an amazing 97% clip and that she has only missed three or four times all year.
Male athlete of the week honors go to Valier's standout running back and defensive back, Isaac Ramos. Ramos may never be described as a "big back" at just five foot five and 140 pounds, but "quick," "smart," "tough"... those terms would definitely apply. In Valier's undefeated Northern Division Conference season, Ramos has had numerous games worthy of the selection, but until now hasn't received the recognition. In the Panther's 70-6 win over Box Elder, the speedy running back rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns. He also returned a kickoff 78 yards for a touchdown, had two interceptions for touchdowns and eight solo tackles on the defense. Ramos is one of the surest tacklers on the Panther defense and obviously provides an offensive spark with 13 touchdowns in Valier's last four games.
