POCATELLO â€” The Blackfoot Broncos hit the road on Thursday looking to improve upon their undefeated conference record when they faced off with Century at Halliwell Park. Unfortunately, an 8 error binge over the fifth and sixth innings spelled doom as the Diamondbacks upset the Broncos 7-2.
"We didn't even get on the bus right to come here," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said. "We were fifteen minutes late getting on the bus and throughout the whole day you could just see that we were not focused. Like I told the team afterwards though, we are still a good team. In fact, the only team that has beaten us this year is ourselves. We just need to lock it up and come back strong tomorrow."
Blackfoot High School students won gold medals (first place) in cabinet making and welding at the Idaho SkilllsUSA competition last week.
Jake Lauritsen, a junior, won first place and a gold medal in cabinet making. Zackary Hall, a senior, won first place a gold medal in welding and a bronze medal in technology- related math.
Both Lauritsen and Hall will compete in the SkillsUSA National Championships June 24-28 in Kansas City, Mo. Lauritsen will compete in cabinet making. Hall will compete in welding.
