Butte High’s Catherine Russo talks shattering state records

BOZEMAN — We start with the Montana Western Bulldogs starting off the preseason ranked number 25 in the NAIA national polls. The Bulldogs climbed as high as 16th in the nation last year before finishing outside the top 25 with a six and four record.

Next up we have Montana State football legend and 2019 College Football Hall of Fame inductee Dennis Erickson stopping by Bobcat camp last week for the first time. Regarded as one of the best coaches in the history of college football, Erickson won two national championships as a head coach at Miami, before a four year stint as the Seattle Seahawks Head Coach.

The Bozeman Bucks make our A-list after reaching the Northwest regional finals where they fell in 10 innings to Idaho Falls. The boys from Bozeman went on to win their first 3 games in the tournament taking down some of the best teams in the Northwest United States.

And we wrap it up with Butte High swimmer Catherine Russo who qualified for the 2020 Olympic trials in the 100 fly by 8 hundredths of a second. Russo will head to Omaha, Nebraska in June where she will get her chance to qualify for the 2020 Olympics and represent Montana in front of the whole country.

“It’s really cool. I’m so excited that I get to represent Montana, and my team in Bozeman, Butte and it’s such an awesome experience and I’m so glad I get to have it," says Russo.
