    Daniel Horton|Updated Jun 18, 2014
    1

    For nearly six years I have called Havre home. I have family here, I have met a lot of great people here, I spent the first couple years of my marriage here, my wife finished her teaching degree at Montana State University-Northern, and the Havre Daily News gave me a shot fresh out of college when other newspapers were busy with layoffs and downsizing. It truly was time well spent, and I am thankful to have had the opportunity to work and live here. That makes leaving...

    Daniel Horton|Updated Jun 16, 2014

    The goal heading into the weekend was a state championship, and after a third-place finish a year ago, the Hi-Line United U19 soccer club knew that was a plausible goal for 2014. But while the United did a lot of growing up since last year's rebuilding stages, so did the competition. The Montana State Cup in Billings proved to be very competitive this year, and the United saw that in their three matches on the pitch, and eventual fourth-place finish. "It was truly a tough tour...

    Kiana Robertson lets nothing get in her way on the soccer field There is no crying in baseball, but if you are the only, or one of the few girls on a U19 co-ed soccer team, there is no crying in soccer either.

Robertson is currently a midfielder for the United, and is one of just...

  • North Stars split with tough Glasgow teams

    Daniel Horton|Updated Jun 10, 2014

    After taking on Glasgow for the third time in less than a month, the Havre North Stars American Legion baseball team continued to find mixed results against the Reds. In mid-May the North Stars defeated the Reds’ B squad, but fell to the A squad in a home doubleheader. Over the weekend at the Havre Jamboree, the North Stars defeated the B squad for the second time. But just like they did at home last month. Monday night in Glasgow, the North Stars split with the reads, defeating the B team 5-0, but losing to the A team...

    Daniel Horton|Updated Jun 9, 2014

    Playing two games at home over the weekend, the Hi-Line United U19 soccer team ran into two teams that made very solid cases for possibly being two of the state’s best for a second consecutive season. Last year, the Big Timber Wolves won the Classic state championship, while the Sidney Strikers were last year’s Classic runner-up. The United hosted both of those squads Saturday at the Havre High School soccer fields and suffered two tough losses. Saturday morning, Big...

  • North Stars fight hard to split with Knights

    Daniel Horton|Updated Jun 2, 2014

    When two teams are as evenly matched on the baseball diamond as the Havre North Stars and Medicine Hat Knights were, the difference between winning and losing can come down to just one or two runs, or key plays. That was the case Sunday at Legion Field in Havre when the North Stars hosted the Knights for a Northern District doubleheader. The Knights took game one with a final score of 5-4. But the North Stars bounced back nicely in game two, and took the nightcap 5-4. The...

    Daniel Horton|Updated May 30, 2014

    Thinking back over the last several state track meets, it is hard to think of a time when the Hi-Line wasn't sending an exciting and explosive talent to compete against the best of the best.

  • Ponies look to mine gold in Butte

    Daniel Horton|Updated May 29, 2014

    Last weekend at the Central A divisional track meet in Havre, the Havre Blue Ponies’ lack of numbers proved to put the program at a disadvantage in the team standings. But that doesn’t mean the Ponies don’t have standout individuals. In fact, the Ponies do have quality athletes, and those individuals will be on display this weekend for one final track meet as they attempt to finish strong among the best of the best.

  • HHS's Miller made his dream come true

    Daniel Horton|Updated May 28, 2014

    There is always some discussion when it comes to what makes a program or athlete elite. There are many factors that go into making that decision, including accomplishments and the caliber of the opponent faced. But other times, there is no discussion at all, an athlete can simply let his or her numbers and achievements speak for themselves. Havre High sophomore Jeff Miller always knew he had what it takes to be an elite prep tennis player. It is in his genes. And growing up...

    Daniel Horton|Updated May 27, 2014

    Both the Havre High boys and girls teams were chasing numbers at the Central A divisional track meet, but it seemed to hit the Blue Pony girls a little bit harder this season. The Central A Blue Ponies have a lot of talented track and field stars, but facing the bigger squads in the division they were spread too thin to keep pace in the team standings. The Ponies wrapped up Friday and Saturday’s divisional meet at the Havre Middle School track and field in fourth place with...
