RIGBY â€” In a high scoring affair at Rigby High School the Blackfoot Lady Broncos came up on the short end of the scoreboard as they fell 72-64 to a hot shooting Lady Trojan squad to tip off the 4A 5th/6th district tournament on Tuesday evening.
"If you would have told me before the game that we were going to score 64 points I would have taken it," Blackfoot head coach Merle Smith said. "Rigby shot lights out on us tonight though. We didn't expect them to shoot the ball so well so we were packing it in and they did a good job of shooting the ball."
Two start-up recall petitions were submitted to the Bingham County Clerkâ€™s office late Monday.
The petitions ask that Blackfoot School District trustees Jenny Hong and Scott Reese be recalled. Hong represents Zone 2; Reese represents Zone 3.
Both start-up petitions that were submitted each have more than the 20 signatures on them, required to begin recall petitions, said Marlene Jensen, the County Clerkâ€™s Election Director. Twenty signatures are required to submit a start-up recall petition. The signatures on both petitions have been verified by the County Clerk's office.
