HELENA -- Through 12 regular-season conference games, the Helena Capital girls currently sit atop the Western AA at 11-1 and will finish the regular season against the Kalispell Glacier Wolfpack and the Flathead Braves on Feb. 28 and 29.

With back-to-back games on the docket for the Bruins, head coach Katie Garcin-Forba believes the quick turnaround will only be a help as the Bruins make a push to the postseason.

"We want to handle it like a tournament situation, where we've got the back-to-back games. That's really what we're taking advantage of before we get into what will hopefully be two back-to-back tournament weekends for us," said Garcin-Forba.

Though the Bruins are thinking about what will help them in the playoffs, that's about it in terms of thinking that far forward. As far as the Bruins are concerned, their only focus right now is the next game.

"This week, we're not even thinking about divisionals. We're just thinking about winning these two games, and our whole focus is on Glacier," said junior Jaymee Sheridan.

The Bruins will play host to the Kalispell Glacier Wolfpack on Feb. 28 at 7:15 p.m. and then will host the Flathead Braves on Feb. 29 at 2 p.m. as they look to finish off the season with only one notch in the loss column.
