Athlete of the Week, Matthew Donaldson

It may be only the second season of high school baseball in Montana, but that doesn’t mean some exciting moments, historical ones at that haven’t already taken place throughout the Big Sky the first two seasons to play.

In fact, last year the Maroons recorded their first ever Class A high school baseball victory over Lone Peak.

This year it was a double header between Butte High and Butte Central, and history was made in the purple and white unis.

Junior Matthew Donaldson got the start the second game on the bump, where more of that history was chiseled into 3 Legends Stadium.

Donaldson struck out 10 Butte Central batters in 6 innings, the only runs that crossed the dish were off of errors and fielders choice plays.

Matt helped the Bulldogs outscore the young Maroons 39-9 in two games with his performance which earned him this weeks Athlete of the Week.

Congratulations Matthew!
