POCATELLO â€” Night three of a twelve night grind on the High School Rodeo circuit came to a frigid conclusion on Friday night as the 4th districts best cowboys and cowgirls battled the cold temperatures, the livestock and each other at Bannock County Fairgrounds.
The barrel racers opened the festivities with a pair of familiar faces finishing 1-2 as American Falls junior Kimberlyn Fehringer crossed the line with a time of 17.159, narrowly edging out Highland senior Shelby Freed who finished with a time of 17.180.
BLACKFOOT â€” Playing into a gale force wind for the entirety of their double header with Hillcrest, the Blackfoot Lady Broncos led for 13 of the 14 innings, earning a split for their efforts on the day by dropping game one 11-8 and then rebounding for a 4-3 win in the nightcap.
SHELLEY â€” The Shelley Lady Russets initial foray into the 4A High Country Conference continued on Tuesday night as they welcomed Rigby to town for a double dip on the diamond.
At the end of the evening, the visiting Lady Trojans proved to be the better team, as they came from behind for a 14-10 win in the first game and then pounded Shelley 18-6 in the nightcap.
"I wish that I could explain what happened to us tonight," Shelley head coach Chris Fleming said. "We started making errors in the field and then we just took it into every part of our game and lost our heads."

FIRTH â€” Behind the strong arm of freshman hurler Conner Montgomery, the Firth Cougars remained unbeaten on the year with a solid 9-0 conference win over West Jefferson on Thursday afternoon.
Montgomery set the tone early as he needed just 10 pitches to sit down the Panther hitters in the first two innings combined.
That dominance continued throughout the contest as the talented youngster picked up a complete game win as he scattered just 3 hits on the afternoon.
FIRTH â€” Kelsey Oliver carried a no-hit bid into the sixth inning and the Lady Cougar bats erupted for 10 runs on 9 hits as Firth remained undefeated in conference play with a 10-0 victory over long time rival West Jefferson on Thursday afternoon.
"I'm just real proud of the girls today," Firth head coach Rachel Olsen said. "We have put in a lot of time in the snow and the rain just waiting for it to click and I am just happy that it clicked today."
THOMAS â€” Cole Rushton and the rest of the Snake River Panthers were walking quietly and carrying a very big stick on Wednesday afternoon, scoring 17 runs on 15 hits in a 17-5 demolition of conference rival Marsh Valley.
"We hit the ball good and did a good job of playing a baseball game in just terrible weather," Snake River head coach James Carter said. "I hate playing baseball in this kind of weather but the kids did a great job of staying focused through it."
RIVERSIDE â€” The Snake River Lady Panthers braved a chilly afternoon on the diamond, warming themselves with a hard fought 6-2 conference victory over the visiting Marsh Valley Lady Eagles on Wednesday evening.
"We played much better today, we just keep on trying and we are getting it all together," Snake River head coach Kay Martin said. "We just kind of worked at it one inning at a time and it was all right today."
BLACKFOOT â€” A slow offensive start doomed the Blackfoot Bronco baseball squads chance at a win on Tuesday afternoon as the visiting Knights of Hillcrest built a commanding 9-1 lead after three innings of play and then played keep away, handing the Broncos a disappointing 18-6 defeat.
"We started the game kind of tentative and allowed them to get ahead and it's always tough to try and battle back when your behind," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said. "Hillcrest is a good team and Motes threw well but they are definitely beatable, I don't think that they are 12 runs better than us."
BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Broncos returned to the diamond on Wednesday afternoon, welcoming conference foe Rigby to town for a double-dip between the two schools.
At the end of a long afternoon, the Broncos found themselves on the right end of a sweep, winning game one 7-1 and then the nightcap 12-6.
