Next Chapter for Coach Barlow

May 25, 2011

BLACKFOOT — It's an interview that I both loathed and loved to have. On one hand my favorite high school teacher and coach is riding into the sunset, leaving a void that the flooding Snake River could never fill.
On the other hand, a man among men is entering into the best times of his life. He is free as he says and now embarks upon yet another chapter in the life and times of Brian Barlow.
Here is a few words from the man. The myth. The legend.

Mark High - Coach you've spent 30 years in the same district both coaching and teaching. Did you ever consider leaving during that time?

BOISE — The 2011 Idaho State Track and Field Championships came to a conclusion on Saturday afternoon and after the dust had settled on Boise State University's campus, several area athletes had turned in marvelous performances.

Matsuura, Lau finish second

May 22, 2011

BOISE – The girls doubles team of Meg Matsuura and Ayla Lau faced a very familiar opponent in Saturday’s 4A state tennis championship match at Boise State University as they tangled with Madison for the fourth time this season.
During the regular season the teams split with one another and Madison was able to topple Blackfoot in the district championship match just prior to the state tournament so a tight match was to be expected.
In the end, Madison was able to hold off Blackfoot for the title, winning a hard fought match in straight sets 5-7, 4-6.

ONTARIO, OR – After a fifteen year absence at the state baseball tournament the Snake River Panthers returned to the diamond on Thursday afternoon falling 9-3 to Kimberly in the first round of the year end event.
Call in nerves, karma or just bad luck but whatever it was an ill fated 7 run first inning put the Panthers behind the eight ball early and despite some valiant effort; Snake River was unable to overcome the large deficit, falling in a game that was much closer than the final score indicates.
