Evans, Tanner Veis, Kade Rismon, Jared Boles, Austin After Buffalo, Tony Filler, Jake Sedahl, Jase Stokes, Erin Patera, Jason Castillion, Ryan Divish, John Shennum, Nate Korb, Jacob Labrie, Jace Kato, Anfernee Standing Rock, Tanner Lowe, Tray Trahant, Nate Rismon, Sam Lippy, Miles Mazurkiewicz, Morgan Mazurkiewicz and Torie Mazurkiewicz.

The Havre Public School Education Foundation Board of Directors would like to thank these young men and women for entertaining the crowd. Also to thank are the time/score keeper, Board of Directors member Kyle Leeds, and Havre Middle School for the use of the gym and for opening the concession stand for beverages and snacks for the spectators.

Any proceeds from sale of the concessions went to HMS Activity Fund.

Thanks to Culligan for providing water for the players and New Media Broadcasters and Havre Daily News for helping inform the public of the game. Thank you Carol Gabrielsen for taking photos, the group photo in this article and to see many action shots check out her Facebook page, "Portrait of a Pony."

Of course, the fans contributed to the evening with their presence and several boxes of non-perishable food items to be donated to Havre Food Bank. Another thank you to Patch Wirzberger and Grayson Winsor, their organizational skills get the players together and run the game during the evening. If not for these two community-minded alumni the games would not be much of a success.
