Hi-Line Athletes of the Week


January 17, 2017


Lillian Gopher, Box Elder Girls Basketball


The Box Elder girls basketball team has depth and talent all over its roster, and every week it seems a different player leads the way. This past week, that player was Lilly Gopher. In two Box Elder wins, Gopher averaged 15 points for the Bears, including scoring a season-high 20 points in the Bears’ 68-25 win over Hays-Lodge Pole last Saturday night. Gopher is in her second year as a starter for the Bears, as she was a big part of Box Elder’s run to the Class C state championship game last March, as well as the 2017 9C title the Bears won.

Tate Niederegger, Chinook Wrestling

Chinook senior Tate Niederegger is chasing a third straight Class C individual state championship this winter. And, the superstar wrestler took another step toward that goal Saturday when he captured the 145-pound title at the always-tough Choteau Classic. Niederegger, who is also a two-time Class C All-State football player, pinned his way to the final in Choteau, where he then pinned Cascade’s Robbie Coleman. Niederegger will be honored when the Beeters celebrate senior night Friday.
