Manhattan Christian repeats as Class C MontanaSports.com all-sports champions

Posted at 4:27 PM, May 30, 2019

Class C schools combined to win 14 Montana High School Association state championships this year. So when one school came home with four of them, it’s pretty easy to pick No. 1 on our MontanaSports.com all-sports list.

We give out 10 points for a title, seven points for second place, six points for third place, down to one point for an eighth-place finish. Manhattan Christian topped the list for a third consecutive time.

The Eagles started the year with a boys cross country title, then won an elusive boys basketball crown in March, and finished it off a couple weeks ago with boys and girls golf championships. Throw in a few more strong showings from track and field and volleyball, and Manhattan Christian totaled 50 points.

The Eagles’ margin of victory is actually a little less than last year’s 27-point romp. Scobey came in second after a boys track and field title. The Spartans scored 31.5 points, also placing in seven sports to match Manhattan Christian’s total.

Then in a tight race for third, Fort Benton used a strong spring to edge out Seeley-Swan, Fairview and Great Falls Central. The Longhorns held only two points from wrestling until their girls tennis, girls golf, and girls and boys track and field teams totaled 21 points over the school year’s final two weeks.

The Blackhawks make the biggest climb from 30th last year to fourth place this year, thanks to a girls track championship and a second-place finish in boys track. Fairview didn’t win a state championship but placed in five sports. Great Falls Central won a boys Class B/C tennis title.
