February 12, 2014

POCATELLO — All season long Snake River Lady Panthers head coach Rich Dunn has said he wanted his team to fly under the radar after winning last season's 3A state title.
To return to this season's state tournament the Panthers would have to defeat an American Falls team that came into the game with nothing to lose.
The Beavers and their fans made Highland High School feel like it was a home game, but in the end Ivy Goff and Makena Shelley each hit a pit of big shots as Snake River defeated American Falls 45-42 in overtime to win the 3A District 5 championship and earn the automatic berth to state.
