Battlers end volleyball season in third round of regions

The Faulkton Trojans got everything that the Potter County Battlers had to give on Thursday night, Nov. 7, when they went up against each other in Faulkton to see who was going to move on to the SoDak 16 Playoffs.  Unfortunately, the Battlers fell in three sets – 14 to 25, 18 to 25 and 22 to 25.  However, the […]

Volleyball team wins to fight another day

Be defeated and go home – or win and fight another day.   That was the scenario the Battlers faced when they traveled to Herreid to take on the Herreid/Selby Area Wolverines on Tuesday, Nov. 5 – the first round of the Class B playoffs.  And battled they did because it was a hard-fought contest that went four long sets. […]

Battlers remember the Titans in VB

Remember the Titans – Leola Frederick Titans, not the 2000 movie featuring Denzel Washington – will forever be the reference for the Potter County senior girls when they recall their final game of the 2019 season because they were heroes on this day.  They beat the Leola Frederick Titans, at Leola, in four sets: 25 to 16, 25 to 21, […]

Battlers head to Faith and take Longhorns to four sets

The Battlers travelled to Faith, SD on Friday, Oct. 25 to go up against one of the toughest Class B volleyball teams in the state – the mighty Longhorns.  The Longhorns had an overall record of 24 wins and 3 losses as compared to Potter County’s 9 and 14 record.  There were only three other Class B teams who possessed […]

Volleyball team travels to North Dakota to take on Clippers

The girls travelled to Strasburg, ND on Oct. 23 — the hometown of Lawrence Welk — to take on the Strasburg/Zeeland Clippers, and sadly, they came up short and lost in a hard-fought contest that went four sets: 21 to 25, 25 to 19, 19 to 25, and 24 to 26.  There is no doubt they had some outstanding moments, […]

Football team finishes season at Faulkton

They finished on Friday night against the Faulkton Area Trojans, coming home on the short end of the 50-6 score.  It’s the first time in the 18 years since Coach Vern Smith has […]

Wildcats roll over Battlers in VB action

There will be a redemption for the Battlers against Northwestern someday, but Thursday night, Oct. 17, was not it.  The 28 and 0 Wildcats rolled over the 8 and 13 Battlers 25 to 12, 25 to 9, and 25 to 6.  Next year might not be the year either since their star player, Sydney Schell, is only a junior, but […]

Battlers break streak with three set win over CEB Braves

In the battle between the Potter County Battlers and Cheyenne-Eagle Butte Braves on Tuesday night, Oct. 15, it can probably best be viewed as akin to the 1948 Humphrey Bogart movie classic, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.  This cinema spectacular was basically about Fred C. Dobbs (Humphrey Bogart) and Bob Curtin (Tom Holt) going through almost every hardship ever […]

Volleyball nail biter when Battlers and Wolverines go to five sets

The Battlers failed to land a knockout punch against Herreid/Selby on Tuesday evening, Oct. 8, when they went the full five rounds with the Wolverines in Hoven.  This was their third match that went the distance and the third time they could not manage to muster a win over a team that everyone – including their opponent – thought they […]

Chargers come from behind for VB win

Was it the “Curse of the Bambino” or some other evil force at work which resulted in Sully Buttes  overcoming a 7 point deficit in the fifth set to rob the Battlers of their best chance ever to finally beat the Chargers and end the winning streak that the Chargers have had on them for the past several years?  Potter […]
