HELENA — Class AA runner-up Missoula Sentinel landed a state-high three athletes on the girls basketball all-state teams. The honors, voted on by league coaches, were released on Monday.

Seniors Jordyn Schweyen and Kylie Frohlich joined junior Shelby Schweyen as all-state selections for Karen Deden’s Spartans. All three are Montana Grizzly commits.
