This Saturday (September 29, 2018) the High School Team will travel to Missoula and run in the Mountain West Classic. The 5K course is at the U of M Golf Course. Race times are: 9:30 a.m. JV Girls; 10:15 a.m. JV Boys; 11:00 a.m. Varsity Boys; 11:45 p.m. Varsity Girls. This is a huge meet and fun to watch, so take a drive and cheer on the Coyotes to the finish line.
The Shelby Sr./Jr. High School Cross Country Teams traveled to Cut Bank and participated in the Mike Reynolds Time Trials. The weather was on the breezy side. No team scores, as this was just the time trials.

Shelby Junior High and High School cross country runners participated in the Cut Bank Timed Trials on Friday of last week, all runners did very well and had great beginning times. 

The Shelby High School Football team will be proudly wearing blue on September 12 when they walk with students for the kickoff of Walk n’ Wheel Wednesday!

Even though school has not yet begun, our athletes have been practicing for a couple of weeks now and our football team already has a game under their belts, picking up a win against Chinook.

With the loss of 21st Century grant funding, Shelby’s after-school program was likely going to end.  Fortunately, numerous individuals and organizations joined the effort to support the program.
