THOMAS â€” The Snake River Panthers buried 9 three point baskets en route to a commanding 63-48 senior night victory over long time nemesis Marsh Valley on Friday evening.
Snake River opened the night by celebrating the contributions of six seniors as Adrian Castaneda, Jacoby Johnson, Cole Rushton, Nate Martin, Mason Watt and Wyatt Wray took to the home hardwood for the final time.
After the ceremony, Snake River and Marsh Valley got down to what they do best, battle it out on the court as the two teams shared or traded the lead on five different occasions leading to a 14-14 tie after one quarter of play.
Jack the kangaroo had an early morning stop on Friday at the Animal Health Clinic, 231 E. Rich Ln., Blackfoot, where he was neutered.
Veterinarian Jason Moulton, D.V.M. said, "Because he is neutered, he won't become aggressive nor will he grow as tall [as a regular kangaroo]."
When full grown, Moulton estimates Jack will stand about five feet tall. A regular kangaroo can grow to seven and one-half feet tall.
