Conrad’s ladies pulled out a split in weekend play on the courts over the weekend. They suffered a tough 36-30 loss in Rocky Boy, but, then rebounded for a big win over Cut Bank in the Corral, 45-37 on Saturday.
On the road in Rocky Boy, the Cowgirls held on to a slim 24-20 lead going to the final frame.
Rocky Boy managed to rally back down the stretch and pull out the 36-30 win.

After reading some of the blogs commenting on the Coalition For Common Sense Use, I’m frustrated by the authors’ apparent misunderstanding.
This grassroots movement is about more than motorized access. Much more.
The Coalition actually spans a much bigger picture. I was inspired to see so many faces at our foundation dinner event, which included nearly 300 people from many diverse backgrounds. Those faces included farmers; ranchers; people from the petroleum, gem and mineral industries; horsemen; bicyclers; motorcycle riders; snowmobilers and business people who are sick and tired of government entities telling us what we can’t do.
Countywide primary elections will be held June 8.
