BOZEMAN — It was senior night at Heroes Park on Tuesday night as the Bozeman Bucks played a doubleheader against the Billings Royals.
"It’s bittersweet that we've got to send them down the road after this year and their eligibility will be up, but really proud of this group, they’ve been very fun to be around," said Bucks head coach Garrett Schultz.
"It’s pretty emotional. It's going to be pretty emotional after the games, but I mean, we’re just here to win and take care of business before all tears start coming out," said senior Sage McMinn.
"It’s definitely going to be a little sad having this be my last day on this field, but I’m really excited for what’s to come," senior Alton Gyselman said.
"It’s going to be tough, but I think it’s what we’ve been waiting for -- for years," said senior Brady Higgs. "Everybody dreams of this moment, so it will be a lot of fun."
The Bucks lost Game 1 against the Royals 6 -3, but came back in Game 2 and won 3-1.
The Bucks try to repeat their Class AA state tournament title next week in Helena.
