FIRTH â€” Sometimes it's hard to imagine the future when the present is so difficult. On Wednesday evening the Firth volleyball team suffered a 3 set loss to West Side but in the end steady improvement of the predominantly underclassmen laden roster still shined through.

Blackfoot erupted from the gate, taking control of the game from the opening kick as Gera Bartolo found Walter Lopez for the games opening score just 5 minutes into the match.
Where has the fall sports season gone? On the pitch area teams will be wrapping up their regular seasons in the next two weeks. Volleyball and cross country are right behind them and, to be perfectly honest, the only thing that I know for a certainty is that I have no clear idea of who will emerge from their respective leagues for a state tournament trip.
