Hi-Line Athletes of the Week
January 14, 2014
Morgan Mazurkiewicz, Havre Girls Basketball
On a team as balanced as the Havre High girls basketball team is, it’s rare one player stands out above the others. The Blue Ponies are truly a team. But on Saturday night in Havre, junior Morgan Mazurkiewicz certainly stood out. Mazurkiewicz buried four 3-pointers and poured in a career-high 19 points as the Blue Ponies raced past Lewistown, 68-35. Mazurkiewicz is a three-sport standout at HHS, participating in basketball, cross country and softball.
Teague Jones, Harlem Wrestling
Harlem’s Teague Jones has won a lot of wrestling matches for the Wildcats in what is already a brilliant career. But Jones knocked off one of the state’s best this past weekend at the prestigious Cut Bank Invitational. On Saturday afternoon, Jones bested Great Falls High’s Tommy McMillen in the 132-pound championship match. McMillen is the top-ranked 132-pounder in Class AA, but Jones edged him 7-5 in the Cut Bank finale. Jones placed second at the B-C state tournament a year ago.
