SHELLEY â€” Shelley cross-country runners Mark Crandall (on left) and Austin Stewart prepare to sign their 3A victory banner Tuesday. For the first time, the Shelley boys' harriers won the state 3A cross country contest. Stewart was the number one runner in the 3A contest.
It took less than four minutes for the Idaho State menâ€™s basketball team to show the fans in Reed Gym their new look offense and defense.
No, coach Bill Evans' patented 2-3 zone is not gone; it has just been improved thanks in part to an influx of new talent and a pressure trapping perimeter defense.
In those opening minutes the Bengals forced a handful of turnovers and got five quick points from Andre Hatchett as ISU ran away with a 97-54 win over Dickinson State in the exhibition opener at Reed Gym Monday night.
THOMAS â€” After watching Teton march down the field in the final seven minutes of the game and punch the ball in the end zone to cut the Snake River lead down to 15-13 the Panther needed to make a play to keep their playoff run alive.
The Snake River and Firth High School volleyball teams along with the Shelley boys and girls cross country teams took home state championships on Saturday afternoon.
See Monday's edition of the Morning News for more on the victories.
BLACKFOOT â€” Friday night's game for the Blackfoot and Rigby football teams had a different meaning for both teams.
COUER D'ALENE â€” Snake River and Firth took two steps toward state volleyball championships on Friday.
The Panthers, playing in the Class 3A tournament at Couer d'Alene High School, opened with a 21-25, 25-23, 25-15, 25-21 victory over Fruitland. They followed that up with 25-19, 25-18, 25-19 victory over Filer.
Snake River will play Parma at 11 a.m. PDT this morning in the semifinal match.
The championship match is scheduled at 3 p.m.
Last week Shelley coach Travis Hobson said he wanted his starters to play the opening two quarters against American Falls in their class 3A playoff opener.
His starters got a little longer break than they had anticipated.
A 28-point first quarter outburst was more than enough as Shelley cruised to a 52-0 victory in Holt Arena Thursday night.
American Falls was outmanned and a huge underdog to the top-seeded Russets so making any type of mistake could prove to be especially costly.
