THOMAS â€” The Snake River baseball team took to the home diamond looking for a season sweep of 6th district South Fremont on Wednesday afternoon but the visiting Cougars had other ideas as they rebounded from an earlier season loss to the Panthers with a 6-5 victory.
"Really today, our pitching kind of labored. We walked too many and we hit five batters and early on, I think that every runner we let on scored and then we left nine runner in scoring position," Snake River skipper Rich Dunn said. "We just let too many opportunities early slip away and it got us late."
RIVERSIDE â€” The Snake River Lady Panthers hosted the South Fremont Lady Cougars on Wednesday afternoon in a game that was originally scheduled to be played in St. Anthony. Due to poor field conditions the game was moved to Snake River's home field and the Lady Panthers took full advantage of both the home field and the gorgeous weather conditions in a 9-3 non-conference victory.
"It was just a great day," Snake River head coach Kay Martin said. "We have a solid core of girls and when we are rolling, playing relaxed, it just makes all the difference."
