Conrad had a good tournament facing off with larger Wyoming schools, as well as Class AA-A schools.
There were only three Class B/C teams in the tournaments with the Cowboys being one.
After the first day of wrestling on Friday, the Cowboys staked out a claim to 10th placed among the 17 teams with 31 points and were the highest ranked among the Class B/C schools, which were Huntley Project and Shepherd.
The top five places looked like this: Gillette, Wyo. 115, Billings Skyview 93, Billings West 83, Great Falls High 79, and Laurel 78. Great Falls CMR was just eight points ahead of Conrad in ninth place.
Bids were solicited for completion of the renovation and remodeling project at the community center in Conrad on Virginia St.
Pheasant Run Builders out of Great Falls submitted the only bid
The base bid was for $650,000 with four deductive alternates.
The first was for $64,490 for an asphalt parking lot. The second was concrete curbing and flatwork for $6,473. The third was $43,916 for floor finishes for the entire project, and the fourth was for $26,268 for wall tape and paint for the entire project.
An additional alternate bid was for a fire alarm system for $18,004.
The commissioners took the bid under advisement for discussion.
