Taylor Drakos and Jimmy Blow of Butte High are the Leskovar Honda Athletes of the Week.
Drakos, a junior outfielder, takes home the girls’ honor after a big week for the Bulldog softball team. Drakos roped a single to score teammate Maddi Jonart with the go-ahead run in the sixth inning of Butte High’s 2-1 win at Bozeman.
Drakos went 2 for 3 in the win. Two days later, she added a single in a loss to Helena Capital.
Blow, a senior infielder, takes home the boys’ award after having a big game to help Butte High pull off a 7-1 Senior Day win over Dillon at 3 Legends Stadium. Blow worked a walk, drove in a run, scored a run and dropped a sacrifice bunt in the victory.
Blow walked and scored a run three days earlier in a 19-4 home win against East Helena.
Leskovar Honda, home of the 20-year, 200,000-mile warranty, teamed up with the ButteCast to honor 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.
