This week’s Athlete of the Week is the Butte Junior Little League team, the 13/14U. They defended a 3-year state title bid and played some really good baseball this weekend as the Host team for the State Tournament at Copper Mountain Park. Butte topped Laurel in the State Championship to hold their crown for another year. They are heading off to Bend Oregon and looking for donations as they fundraise to get there. You can help them directly by donating to their Venmo account @MileHighLittleLeague.
The team is a blend of Mile High and Northwest Little Leaguers and those players are, Bryson Hibbert, Hugh O’Brien, Kodye Kjerten, Noah Powers, David Honer, Mile Choquette, Sawyer Casey, Camden Ingraham, Tucker Kissell, Tegan Duffy, Calvin Cunningham, and Treigh Hollow.
The Junior team is coached by head man Mike Duffy assisted by Chad Powers, and Joe O’Brien.
