BLACKFOOT â€” It was a fabulous way to end the regular season and for a quintet of seniors and even better way to leave the home field a winner as the Blackfoot Broncos sent Jeremy Leavitt, Jeremy Johnson, Jaron Katseanes, Colton Fairchild and Shawn Whitehead home with fond memories of their 13-2 conference win over Rigby on Wednesday evening.
"It was nice to get a home win," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said.
Not only did the seniors go away winners on senior night but they each played big roles in the final outcome of the game as well.

BLACKFOOT â€” On Tuesday members of the Blackfoot City Council approved discussions with two groups which want to use city property.
Mayor Mike Virtue noted that an organization out of Utah wants to use Jensen Grove Lake for a regional wakeboard competition on July 28. He also noted that another organization would like to use the old BMX track property for ATV training at least one time this summer.
"This sounds like a win-win for the city," said councilman Rich Woodfin.
"It's another way to get people off the freeway and see our wonderful growth," councilman Butch Hulse said in agreement.
BLACKFOOT â€” Louis Kraml, administrator of Bingham Memorial Hospital (BMH), is doing some moonlighting.
Kraml and Dan Cochran, an associate and friend of Kraml's for the past 22 years have formed a coding and billing company called International Consulting Services (ICS), LLC.
A contract was proposed between ICS and the Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation (CHC) in Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. territory. The islands are across the International Date Line, way east of Hawaii, and a little north and west of Guam.
