â€śBeating these 4A and 5A teams has been phenomenal,â€ť Shelley head coach Ceanna Larson said. â€śThere have been many people who have doubted that we could even compete at this level so it is awesome to come out and prove what we can do.â€ť

BLACKFOOT â€” Extra time can be a killer and in the instance of the Blackfoot and Idaho Falls boys soccer match on Tuesday evening, extra time played against the Broncos as Idaho Falls scored nearly five minutes after regulation time had expired, leading to a 1-1 tie.

BLACKFOOT â€” Dennie Hill of Blackfoot didn't expect Tisa Dream Runne to win the Merial Distaff Regional Final horse race at the Eastern Idaho State Fair on Saturday.
