Montana Tech chartering plane

Montana Tech is hoping to travel with a ton of support to Saturday’s NAIA playoff game at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa.

Montana Tech will charter a plane and fly — along with what they are hoping is a large group of Oredigger fans — to Iowa on Friday. The plan is to fly back after the game.

Tech athletic director Joe McClafferty said plans are still in the works.

“We’re excited about the trip coming up to Sioux City,” McClafferty said. “Coach gets to go back to his old stomping grounds and do some more stomping out there. We’re going to try to fill the plane with as many supporters as we can.”

KBOW’s Ron Davis will make the trip to call the game along with McClafferty. Kickoff is at noon Butte time.
