Plains-Flint Creek opener officially a 'nolo contendere'

PHILIPSBURG – Word came Saturday that the 2020 season opener for the Flint Creek Titans would go down as a cancellation. The Titans’ game with Plains was cancelled Friday just hours before kickoff when it was determined that a member of the Flint Creek roster had tested positive for COVID-19. The visiting Horsemen exercised their right to not play the game due to the positive test. The game does not go down as a win or a loss for either team. Flint Creek had a similar circumstance in 2017 when Hot Springs did not field a team. They lost that game on their schedule, but still finished with an unblemished 12-0 mark in claiming the first of two consecutive 8-Man State Championships. Due to the

Lady Prospectors tame Panthers in home opener

Drummond blanks Lady Wardens in volleyball opener

DRUMMOND – The Lady Trojans were able to play up a level and come away with a sweep of Powell County Saturday afternoon at home, 25-15, 25-15, and 25-22. The victory was the first over nearby Powell County for second-year Lady Trojan Head Coach Brooks Phillips. It was one that is bearing the fruit of the labor that she and her team have put in since her coming on board in 2019. “They really wanted to play a really good game and they were determined not to give any part of it away,” said Phillips after the win. “Even when they got down, they settle down, talked about it and got the job done.

Titans ready for the challenge of 2020 campaign

GRANITE COUNTY – At this point, fourth-year Head Coach Mike Cutler and the Flint Creek Titans are just grateful to be playing. In a year that will be as unpredictable as any other in recent memory, Cutler and the Titans are set to open the new year at home Friday night against Plains. The Horsemen finished an even 4-4, losing the bulk of their skill players to graduation while maintain a good portion of their linemen. But over the last several months it’s been a team on a mission that has found the members of the Titans working hard to regain the glory of the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Flint Creek players have gathered in groups to work out and solidify a camaraderie Cutler hopes will take them
