"This was a nice, decisive win today which shows just how hard we've been working," Blackfoot head coach Brint Jeffris said. "I think that this was one of those matches which gives us a brief picture of how districts should look like."

RIVERSIDE â€” The game was much more winnable than the final 13-5 score indicated on Tuesday evening as the Snake River Lady Panthers dropped their first game of the season in the eight run, extra inning defeat at the hands of a tough Teton squad.
"We should have won this game," Snake River head coach Kay Martin said. "We get ahead in the sixth inning and then just didn't make the plays that we needed to make to get the job done. When the pressure was on, we just didn't make the plays when we needed them."
This Friday Blackfoot High School students will enchant audiences with their musical production of "Beauty and the Beast."
This grand performance will include a cast of about 50 students, a full orchestra directed by Jan Eddington and a choir directed by Andrew Hames.
Though "Beauty and the Beast" is a "tale as old as time," director Sharon Hoge said the play will be unique. Hoge is a master at making plays distinct through special effects and she says this show will include those impressive elements.
