MISSOULA -

While practicing on Thursday a couple of Missoula Mavericks players for the 'A' team asked Manager David Feeley if the weather was poor Friday could they help fill sandbags?

That's exactly what the team did Friday afternoon.

Players and coached head to 3rd Street in Missoula and helped load sandbags onto truck beds and trailers for nearly two hours.

The Mavs were joined by other student athletes from Sentinel and Hellgate. McKenzie Johnston with the Lady Griz and Madison Shaide a hooper from Montana State were also there volunteering. 

The volunteer support has been crucial as Missoula's Clark Fork River reaches historic levels, impacting several neighborhoods.
