Abbi Kolstad (L) and Ethan Etchart (R) were named Outstanding Senior Athletes at the All-Sports Banquet held May 31.

The second annual Scottie all-sports banquet was held Tuesday, May 31 in the St. Raphaels gymnasium. More than 300 guests attended the event, which was sponsored by the Scottie Booster Club.

Area athletes that participated in Scottie sports were awarded varsity letters and received recognition for their participation in the 2015-2016 athletic season.

Following a meal prepared and served by the booster club, keynote speaker Mark Sulser addressed the audience. Sulser graduated from GHS in 1986 and was a three-sport stand out for the Scotties.

During his time at GHS, Sulser was selected 1st Team All-State in football and was a two-time state champion in the 300m hurdles. After high school, he attended the University of Montana to play football.

After graduating from the U of M, Sulser spent 24 years as a teacher, coach, and administrator in Billings. In his 14 years as head coach of the Billings Senior Broncs, Sulser led the team to two State AA championship game appearances.

Sulser shared some of his own experiences as an athlete and coach with the audience and stressed the importance of dedication and hard work when participating in athletics. Sulser also touched on the depth of Scottie pride, explaining that the tradition of being a Scottie and the pride that goes with it is unfading.

Following Sulser's address, each of the GHS coaches gave a brief re-cap of their seasons and presented awards to their participating athletes.

Senior Ethan Etchart was awarded the coveted Golden Scottie award by GHS' Activity Director, Brenner Flaten. Etchart earned the recognition by participating in sports and maintaining eligibility requirements for his entire high school career.
