BOISE â€” The Firth boys basketball team are a game away from bringing home a state trophy to match the one the girls team won two weeks ago.
After fending off a last-ditch effort from Grangeville, the defending champion, The Cougars earned the right to play for the Class 2A championship. Firth won a 44-41 contest, only the third time the Cougars have allowed a team to put up more than 40 points this season.
MERIDIAN â€” Free throw shooting in overtime decided Sugar-Salem's Class 3A state consolation title opponent: District 6 rival Shelley.
