It is especially excit- ing that two Sidney natives have been featured on a na- tional stage. I am, of course, speaking of Beau Franzen and Ter- ran Hillesland. Franzen, re- cently competed at the Na- tional Rodeo Finals in Las Vegas and did himself sP~Oud. Franzen won the ixth round in steer wrestling and finished ninth overall in a crowded field. I have been told by some that rodeo is not a sport, but I couldn't disagree with that statement more. I can't imagine the muscles that one uses when bringing a large animal to the ground. I think I will leave it to the professionals. Hillesland is a starting of- fensive lineman for the Uni- versity of Montana Grizzly football team. The Grizzlies will play for the FCS nation- al championship Saturday. Hillesland,..has been fea- tured several times on na- tional programming for ex- cellent blocks. Earlier this year, I had the pleasure to interview Ter- ran about the upcoming sea- son. I couldn't have been more impressed about his attitude and outlook on the future. Hillesland under- stands the importance of hard work and the suc- cess that comes from it. I would like to congratu- late both of Harry's hypnosis these ath- letes on a job Harry Upsieowell done. I cannot imag- ine the amount of hard work and dedication it takes to com- pete at the national levels in each of these sports. It is ex- citing to have two athletes receiving the national spot- light at the same time. It is so important to sup- port our athletes no matter if it is watching them on tel- evision, wishing them our best or going out and seeing a game. This area ]s so lucky to have quality sports all around us. If you haven't been to a winter sporting event so far, you should. One of the highlights for me was watching my first wrestling meet. I couldn't have been much more im- pressed with each one of the athletes involved. I think wrestling is the real "sweet science." There is a lot of planning and thinking in- volved in each match. After watching the sport, I cannot believe the endurance of the participants. I needed a wa- ter break just watching. I am looking forward for the hockey season to get in- to full gear as well. I am fa- miliar with the league, so it will be interesting to follow the Rangers this season. On Friday, Watford City travels to play the Rangers. I saw the two teams play earlier in the season, and I think the rematch will be a whale of a game. When I moved here, I was the told the quality of bas- ketball in the area was very high. From the little basket- ball I have seen so far, I would'have to agree. I have been very impressed with the pace and speed of the game in the area. I wish everyone a happy holiday. This means that we are almost half way through the high school sports season which is hard to believe.
