SET TO GO — Cowgirl Taylor Judisch is ready to launch a free throw on a technical against Shelby with just 2.7 seconds to lay in the game.

The Cowgirl basketball team picked up two big road wins over the weekend.
Friday the team handily stopped the Badgers 58-42 and Saturday they pounded their next door neighbor, 48-34.
In Cascade, the home girls already held a 17-11 lead going in to the second quarter and then went to the locker room leading 27-18.
Over the second half they coasted to the win.
Junior Rashelle Johns and sophomore Moranda Brenteson both cashed in for a nifty night on the floor.

As a new special for the I-O we will be running a bi-monthly ‘Spotlight on Business’ with an emphasis on their contributions to our community and their history.
These spotlights are not only for the large businesses of our area but also for the ‘little guy’ who gives back to our community in ways that often go unnoticed. Each business contributes to Conrad’s and Montana’s success in times of hardship across the nation.
A business can only provide so much when it comes to their merchandise, what we look for in Conrad is not only great service but unity in our community.
The Conrad Area Chamber of Commerce is having its Annual Banquet on Feb. 8 at Norley Hall.
Cocktail hour is from 6-7 p.m. and the dinner and program will follow at 7 p.m.
The speaker this year is in demand not only in the U.S. but internationally as well. He is the excellent Matt Matteson, www.mattesonavenue.com .
We are looking for table sponsors. The theme this year is ‘TV Shows,’ so use your imagination and get creative. A Banquet Table Sponsor is $175 and includes six admission tickets, a table to decorate (eight place settings) and a sponsorship listing in the banquet’s program. If you would like to be a General Banquet Sponsor, this costs $100 and includes three admission tickets and a sponsorship listing in the program.
