Conrad took on the Class A Havre Blue Ponies in a non-conference Homecoming match on Saturday.
The team may have played their best game of the season in winning the match 3-1 by scores of 25-20, 25-19, 22-25, and 25-18.
Besides winning for Homecoming, there was a measure of revenge as the Ponies defeated the Cowgirls last Friday up on the Hi-line in a match that went to five games.
Anna Pauline (Olson) Pfeifer passed away Oct. 13 of natural causes at the Pondera Medical Center Extended Care. She was 101.
Anna was born Jan. 29, 1912 to Anna and Cornelius Olson in Minnesota. She married Walter Pfeifer and lived in Havre raising her family. She later moved to Libby and then to the Horizon Lodge in Conrad before moving to PMC.
Anna was a spunky lady for her age, always commenting that “I’m old!” when asked how old she was.
She was preceded in death by her parents and 12 siblings.
Anna is survived by her children, a son Monty Pfeifer of Arlington, Wash.; daughters Marlene Robertson of Denver, Colo., and Teri Cole of Cascade; nine grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.
No services are planned at Anna’s request.

The fans in the gym, even those from Choteau took part in a ‘Paint Conrad Pink’ in awareness of the month being Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
In the warm-up session before the games started, both teams were decked out in pink warm-up shirts provided by the Pondera County Health Department.
Before the teams hit the court, Wendy Wedum gave a brief talk to the crowd. She introduced herself, saying, “My name is Wendy Wedum and I am a mom, a daughter, a niece, an honorary aunt, a future grandma and your county Extension agent.”
