LIBBY -- Three years ago, the Libby Loggers were finishing up a 1-8 season at the Class B level.

Then, in 2017, Libby jumped back up to the Class A ranks after two years in B and went 2-7. Last season, the Loggers were 5-4.

This season, Libby is 6-0 and has been cruising through the competition as it has booked a spot in the postseason for the first time since 2011. The Loggers have outscored opponents 249-59 thanks to a strong running game that has averaged 304 yards per game on the ground.

The road to the postseason won't be easy, though, as the Loggers' final three regular-season matchups include games at Dillon and Hamilton while they will host Frenchtown. There, they will try to add more momentum to their current run as they prepare for the playoffs.
