IDAHO FALLS â€” The Blackfoot Bronco baseball squad punched their ticket to the state tournament on Thursday evening, their first trip to the big dance since 2001, as they avenged an earlier loss to the Pocatello Indians with a 8-5 victory.
"After we lost the first game with Pocatello we just told the kids to relax and focus because we still needed two wins to get to state no matter how we did it," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said. "We felt that we were in a good position with our arms. We were confident that we could get it done and that's what we did."
Students Nayeli Morales and Tony Davis from the Student Health Council at Independence High School are on a mission to see that all parks in Blackfoot become smoke-free for the better health of everyone, especially children. The students, along with Traci Lambson, MHE from Southeastern Idaho Public Health (SIPH), presented a proposal to the Blackfoot City Council on Tuesday night in hopes that the city will consider making smoke-free parks a reality in the near future.
