FIRTH â€” Fresh off of a disappointing loss to their neighbor Shelley the night previous, the Firth Lady Cougars returned home for a date with cross county rival Aberdeen on Wednesday evening. Firth showed no ill signs from the Shelley loss though as they sprinted to a 22-2 first quarter advantage and then kept the Lady Tigers at arms length for the remainder of the evening for the 58-39 non-conference victory.
"We really stressed being mentally tough and to not have a let down after last nights tough loss," Firth head coach Sharla Cook said. "I was proud of the way that the kids came out and started the game tonight."
Firth opened with 20 straight points before Aberdeen finally broke the seal on the rim as Taylor Wallace got the Lady Tigers on the board with :23 remaining in the quarter.
Bingham Academy, the new charter high school in Blackfoot, needs a list of interested students who would consider attending that school in the fall 2013.
The Idaho Charter School Commission recently approved the new charter school in Blackfoot with some caveats.
One of the requirements is an increase in the number of interested students, said Fred Ball, project director for Bingham Academy and administrator of the Blackfoot Charter Community Learning Center. Other issues deal mainly with the actual petition that enables the school to be chartered.
Santa's helpers look a lot like students from Blackfoot High School (BHS).
Student council members went shopping with money raised from the BHS student body and the community and delivered the toys to the Southeastern Idaho Community Action Agency Wednesday evening.
"Our limit was $3,000," said student body treasurer Megan Moore.
"This is so fun," said student body president Markie Lawrence. "We look forward to this the whole year.
"This is our biggest project and our favorite project," she said. "We were reliving our childhoods as we were shopping in the toy aisles."
