Butte High’s Kamber Leary and Butte Central’s Kyle Holter are the Leskovar Honda Athletes of the Week.
Leary, a junior shortstop, takes home the girls’ award. She smacked eight hits in three games to lead the Bulldogs in the final week of the season. The leadoff hitter went 4 for 5 with two RBIs and two runs scored in a 15-14 loss at Gallatin.
After a 1-for-4 effort in a 6-5 loss to Flathead, Leary went 3 for 5 with two RBIs and a run as Butte High closed the season with a 14-4 win over the Bravettes. Leary finished her junior campaign with a team-leading .414 batting average.
Holter, a senior, receives the boys’ honor after a big performance at the Western A Divisional track meet in Corvallis. He placed second in the high jump, fourth in the long jump and seventh in the Javelin.
At the divisional meet, Holter cleared season-best 6 feet, 2 inches in the high jump, leapt 20 feet, 7 ¼ inches in the long jump and launched the javelin 156 feet, 11 inches. Holter will compete in those three events at the Class A State meet in Laurel. He will also run a leg for BC’s 400-meter relay team.
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.
