One of five sophomores on the Lady Indians basketball team this season, Sugar Spoonhunter is set to return fully experienced for the 2022-23 season.

It was a busy season and the first real season the Lady Indians had since the pandemic shut things down in previous years. Coach Darryl “Poorboy” Croff noted his team played 23 games this time around, including those at divisional and state tournaments. He further noted with pride that his team managed third place in Western A and a shot at state hardware while sporting just two seniors.

Last week’s trip to Missoula for the Class A championships proved to be a learning experience for the Lady Indians and for the coach.

“I don’t know if we foul that much,” Coach Croff said. “They said we set a record for fouls and free throws. We had 92 in the first two games, and Havre plays as physically as we do. We were a young team. Mecca Bullchild was the only one who’d been there before.”
