The Eagles earned the top spot at the 2019 MHSA State Championships in Billings on Feb. 9. The team scored a total of 310.5 points beating the second place Havre team that scored 170 and third place Polson with 128.5. The 310.5 point win has been reported to be a Montana Class A State Tournament record. The 2015 Havre team with 297 points held the previous record.

Sidney coach Guy Melby was proud of his team's performance throughout the season. "Our guys continued to get better every week, every day and every practice," Melby stated. "When it came time for competition they were just ready. Our room was so tight as far as competition goes, it was almost a relief to go to a tournament."
