The warm weather is a welcome sight, particularly to those in charge of scheduling Butte High and Butte Central activities.  After delays, postponements and cancellations we are keeping our fingers crossed for the warm stretch to continue as the Bulldogs and Maroons look to get things rolling.


The Butte Central Maroons already have 8 games under their belt but have yet to host a single one.  That streak will end this afternoon as they will host the Dillon Beavers at 3pm at Stodden Park with the JVs to follow at 5.  Tomorrow will be a softball fan's delight as Butte Central and Butte High will be in action on adjacent fields at the same time.  The Maroons host Corvallis and the Bulldogs host Helena High with both games starting at 3pm, again at Stodden Park.  JV contests will follow at 5pm.  Thursday, the Bulldogs return home hosting Missoula Hellgate at 3pm (JV at 5) while the Maroons get a few days off before returning to Stodden Park on Saturday hosting the Hamilton Broncs at 11am (JV at 1pm),


Tuesday is going to be a vety big day in Butte's young high school baseball history as the Bulldogs and Maroons will square off against each other in a home-and-home doubleheader at 3 Legends Stadium at Copper Mountain Park.  Both teams call the field home, so very little travel will be involved, save the teams switching dugouts between games.  The Bulldogs will be the home team in the first contest at 4pm, The Maroons are home for the nightcap at 6.  Both teams will be on the road Thursday with the Bulldogs travelling to Big Sky to take on the Lone Peak Bighorns (varsity 3pm, JV 5pm) and the Maroons playing at Belgrade with the same start times.  Friday it will be Butte Central taking the drive to Big Sky for games against Lone Peak (varsity 3pm, JV 5pm) while the Bulldogs are home for a date against Columbus (varsity 3pm, JV 5pm).


The Butte Central Maroons will host East Helena this Thursday at Stodden Park Courts with matches beginning at 3pm.  There are no matches on Butte High's schedule this week.


The Butte High track and field team will compete at Missoula Big Sky this Thursday with events starting at 3:15pm.  The Maroons will compete Saturday at East Helena with events starting at 9am.
