East Middle School seventh grader Izzy Dawson and Butte Central senior Kyle Holter are the Leskovar Honda Athletes of the Week.

Dawson takes home the girls’ honor after completing basketball and wrestling seasons at East. She competes in the Unified Sports program at the school.

“Izzy is a hard-working, determined young girl,” coach Kelci Thatcher said of Dawson. “She is kind and caring, always offering a helping hand to others as she has a great smile. Izzy was a leader on the basketball floor, both often civilly and defensively. She was the leading score for the Eagles. She also did a great job of getting the ball to her teammates.”

Holter is the boys’ honoree after helping lead the Maroons to the third-place trophy at the Class A State tournament in Bozeman. Holter scored in double figures in all four of BC’s games as the Maroons closed the season at 23-2. Over the past two seasons, Holter and the Maroons went 49-3.

As a freshman, Holter played on BC’s 2020 State championship team. He started his last three seasons, and he will go down as perhaps the best high school defensive player the Mining City has ever seen. He helped the Maroons take home the 2022 title in Missoula.

Leskovar Honda, home of the 20-year, 200,000-mile warranty, is honoring the finest student-athletes from the Mining City in an effort to encourage more children to get up, get out and try all kinds of sports and activities.
