IDAHO FALLS â€” The Blackfoot Bronco baseball squad punched their ticket to the state tournament on Thursday evening, their first trip to the big dance since 2001, as they avenged an earlier loss to the Pocatello Indians with a 8-5 victory.
"After we lost the first game with Pocatello we just told the kids to relax and focus because we still needed two wins to get to state no matter how we did it," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said. "We felt that we were in a good position with our arms. We were confident that we could get it done and that's what we did."
POCATELLO â€” Fantastic! That was the word that repeatedly came from Blackfoot head tennis coach Brint Jeffris on Thursday afternoon as his boys team captured their first district championship in the history of the program by a wide margin as they scored 71.5 team points with Century coming in second with a team total score of 48.
"This is the first district championship for the boys and with eleven players going to state that is the most ever," Blackfoot head coach Brint Jeffris said. "This was probably the most successful team in the history of Blackfoot tennis."
