For the first time in a long time, the Havre Blue Ponies aren't considered the favorite in Class A, ahead of this weekend's state tournament in Billings. But senior Ryan Stewart, right, and his 13 Pony teammates haven't changed their goals and aren't afraid of the challenge either.

When the Havre High wrestling team arrives in Billings this weekend for the All-Class State Tournament, there will be a lot of familiarity. One thing, however, that won't be familiar for the Blue Ponies is the role of underdogs.

It might seem strange for the five-time defending Class A state champions to come into the state tournament as an underdog, but after a dominant regular season for Sidney, the Eagles will come in as the favorite, and when the action gets underway Friday at 10 a.m., inside the Rimrock Auto Arena at the Metra, they will be the team with the target on their backs.
