THOMAS â€” Shayla Christensen scored 17 points, 10 during a 20-3 run, to lift Snake River to a 52-32 win over Bear Lake in Fifth District girls' basketball on Friday.
Snake River led just 12-11 after one period. Christensen had six points in the second period as the Panthers built a 24-14 advantage. She added four more points as they opened the third period with an 8-0 burst.
After Bear Lake closed within 35-25 on Chaylie Hulme's two free throws early in the fourth quarter, Christensen started Snake River on a 13-5 run to put the Panthers ahead 48-30.
SHELLEY â€” For a game that Shelley coach Dave Hadley called a "polar opposite" of the first meeting with Bonneville, the Russets got the similar result they were looking for.
Shelley beat Bonneville 61-47 Friday after taking down the Bees by eight in December.
"In the first meeting, we got off to a great start offensively," Hadley said. "And Jared Stutzman had what? 29, 30 points against us."
It was a different story this time around.
BLACKFOOT â€“Â The Citizen's on Patrol (COP) program needs more volunteers. The core group consists of about 16 volunteers and Sgt. Jeff Mosbrucker with the Blackfoot Police Department says "it just isn't enough."
"COP's are the eyes and ears for the police," said Mosbrucker. "They're already trained and they help ease the load so officers can focus on other things."
For the month of December COP's donated 51.5, hours of their time. Mosbrucker says the police department would like to see a big increase in that number â€“â€“ but it will require more volunteers.
