While the 2015-16 season ended a little bit earlier than the Montana Lady Griz would have liked the outstanding group of seniors had an tremendous 4 year run. The class of 2016 posted 88 wins over the past four years the most for a senior class since 2010–a class that was part of 95 wins. Since the re-opening of the Adams Center the Lady Griz have posted thirteen 20-win seasons and in 17 years, 372 games.
Chris Walterskirchen has been an observer of Montana sports for nearly half a century. A Kalispell native, Chris has worked in various capacities for professional and college sports organization of at various times: ranging from announcing and statistical work to the concessions and even a stint as a costumed mascot.
Chris has academic degrees in communications and elementary education. His style of sports trivia involves more than just who won and who lost, but also focuses on the obscure or human side of sports. In this blog you will learn things like the Grizzly football team has won 210 games over the 19 seasons since they have had Monte as their mascot or that UNLV is the only school that both the Griz and Lady Griz have both faced in the NCAA basketball tournament
When not following sports Chris enjoys taking care of animals of all kinds (a peacock rescue?) and reading to pre-schoolers.
