Hamilton Lady Broncs Eye State Tourney

"We are a really good shooting team I think that is one of our strengths and I think we all just share a common love for the game," said Jaylee Albert.

Down in the Bitterroot the Class A Hamilton Lady Broncs are a team that can make some noise in the coming months. Despite having only one senior, they have a talent filled roster and it has the Hamilton fans excited.

"The expectations are fun but they are also a burden to be perfectly honest," said Hamilton Head Coach Mark Albert.

Last year the Lady Broncs were one overtime period away from making the state tournament, something they think about constantly.

"The season ending last year was heartbreaking, there were a lot of tears but then we used it to fuel ourselves for this year.  We know what we want and we are going to go get it," said Hamilton Senior Sami Kratofil.

With the entire team coming back the Lady Broncs are off to a strong start to the season.  Offensively they are led by Gatorade Player of the Year Taylor Goligoski who averages over 20 points and 10 rebounds a game.


"She is definitely really fun to play with and she has amazing talent and one of my jobs is to get her the ball when she is on fire," said Albert.

"Well we share the ball really well even though we have a really good player in Taylor Goligoski, we have a lot of unselfish kids and we like to shoot the three, probably a little too much sometimes," said Coach Albert.

If their play wasn't enough to get you to watch a Hamilton Lady Bronc game how about their gym, it's one of the biggest and best in the entire state.

"it's super nice but sometimes on Saturday games it's a little overwhelming because there is nobody in the stands, or it at least feels that way, and then when you get to smaller gyms it's like they have a sense of pride but it's really nice we like it here," said Kratofil.

"Sometimes it's a little empty because it is so big but we have actually had great crowd support this year and winning helps with that, having a couple good players makes a difference, but we are really blessed to be able to play in this facility," said Coach Albert.

Hamilton will host the Class A State tournament in 2015, and the Lady Broncs hope that's where they'll defend their state title after they win on this year of course.
