The Class AA All-State and all-conference teams were released to the media this morning, and five Butte High players made the cut.

Senior Kenley Leary led the way for the Bulldogs, taking home second-team all-conference honors. Leary averaged 12.3 points per game during the regular season. He got particularly hot late in the season to help lead the Bulldogs boys to their third straight trip to the Class AA State tournament.

Senior Kooper Klobucar and junior Jace Stenson received an honorable mention on the boys’ side.

Stenson averaged 14.1 points per game during the season. That includes a 31-point performance in a Feb. 4 win over Kalispell Flathead. Klobucar averaged 12.3 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.

On the girls’ side, Bulldog seniors Kodie Hoagland and Ashley Olson each took home an honorable mention.

Hoagland averaged 8.2 points to pace the Bulldogs in the regular season. The guard also averaged 3.6 points, 2.3 assists and 2.8 steals per game. Olson, who battled back from an ankle injury that kept her out five games, averaged 7.7 points and 6.8 rebounds as the Bulldogs qualified for the State tournament.
