An historic first occurred Saturday night at the Montana Amateur Athletic Union Little Sullivan Awards, for the first time in the history of the awards dating back to 1955 dual winners were announced in the male division.
Montana States Caleb Schreibeis shared the honor in the male division. Schreibeis, who graduated from Billings West where he was an all-state football player, was a team captain for the MSU Bobcats football team.
This past year during his senior season, the Sports Network named him the Buck Buchanan Award winner as the top defensive player in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision.
Schreibeis shared that honor with Trent Sprenkle who was a three-time State AA champion wrestler for Billings Senior. He was also a three-time NCAA Division I Championship Tournament qualifier for North Dakota State.
Sprenkle Earned All-America honors this season with a fifth-place finish at 125 pounds.
Schreibis wasn't the only Bobcat to be honored with the Little Sullivan Award, in the women's division Montana State's Rachel Semansky received the honor. Semansky is one of only two players in Montana State women's basketball history to record over 1,300 points and 800 rebounds.
During her senior season Semansky played in all 30 games while averaging 12.7 points per game and just over 7 rebounds per game. She was also a three-time all-conference player for the Lady Cats.
