Congratulations to Billings West's Isaiah Claunch and Capital's Thomas Carter for being voted SBLive’s Montana High School Athletes of the Week for April 4-10!

Claunch, a senior track and field athlete, launched a state-leading javelin throw of 189 feet, 10 inches – a personal record – at the GHS Triangular.

Carter, a junior track and field athlete, took over the state lead in the 100 and 200 meters, running personal bests in both races – 10.83 seconds and 22.24 seconds – in a dual meet against Hellgate.

Both athletes received 46.15% of the total vote. If this were an election, we would have a run-off. Because it’s high school sports, we get to give out swag and awards to two great athletes!
