Butte High girls end season with loss at Sentinel

MISSOULA — The basketball season came to an end for the Butte High girls’ basketball team Thursday night.

Missoula Sentinel took the lead for good with a 13-2 run in the second quarter, and the Spartans beat Butte High 41-25 in a Western AA playoff game at Sentinel’s gym. The Spartans lock up a spot in next week’s Class AA State tournament, while the Bulldogs come home.

Sentinel, which went 3-0 against Butte High this season, led 17-7 at the half. Butte High made a run in the third quarter, pulling to within 28-23. However, a 13-2 fourth quarter sunk the Bulldogs’ homes of going to State.

Brooke Stayner scored 12 points, and Olivia Huntsinger came off the bench to toss in 11 to lead the Spartans, who will take a 9-6 record into next week’s tournament in Great Falls. Kodi Fraser and Challis Westwater each scored seven points.

Senior MacKenzie Tutty scored a team-best seven points in the final game of her Bulldog hoops career. Laura Rosenleaf scored six points, Kodie Hoagland poured in four, and Brooke McGrath, McCaul McCarthy and Ashley Olson scored two apiece.
