After the 2020 fall sports season, Manhattan Christian leads the Class C all-sports rankings.

The all-sports rankings were calculated by applying point totals to team finishes in the fall sports of boys and girls cross country, volleyball and football. Ten points were awarded for a state title, seven points for a second-place finish, six for a third-place finish and so on, down to one point for an eighth-place finish.

The Eagles won state titles in boys and girls cross country and placed second in volleyball to total 27 points in the fall. Manhattan Christian student-athletes also play football at Manhattan High, which won the state championship. However, those points were not added to Manhattan Christian’s total, as the Tigers compete at the Class B level.

Drummond finished second in the all-sports rankings after splitting the 8-Man championship points with Philipsburg. Drummond also earned fourth- and fifth-place finishes in boys and girls cross country, respectively, this fall to collect 14 total points.

Scobey is third in the all-sports rankings with 13 points. The Spartans collected a second-place finish in 8-Man football, as well as fifth- and seventh-place finishes in boys and girls cross country, respectively.

Bridger, the Class C state volleyball champion, is third with 12.5 points. The Scouts were also awarded 2.5 points for the fifth/sixth/seventh/eighth tie in 6-Man football.

Fort Benton scored 10.5 points to come in fifth place in the all-sports rankings. The Longhorns were fourth at the state volleyball tournament and advanced to the semifinals of the 8-Man playoffs, splitting the third- and fourth-place points.

Froid-Medicine Lake got 10 points for its 6-Man football state championship, which places it in sixth place in the all-sports rankings.
