BLACKFOOT â€” The season is over. The stats have been compiled and the votes are in for the 2013 High Country Conference softball All-Conference team and as expected, the 23-3 Blackfoot Lady Broncos have several selections to this years team.
"Honestly, while we are happy with the all-conference selections that we got, we felt that we could have had even more," Blackfoot head coach Matt Chavez said. "Our top eight hitters in our lineup each hit over .400 this year and when you are hitting at those levels, regardless of what league your playing in, that's pretty special."
