Buhl puts brakes on Snake River softball season

May 12, 2012

AMERICAN FALLS — The Snake River Lady Panthers had one last chance at punching their ticket to the state tournament on Saturday afternoon as they squared off with Buhl in the state play in game.

Bronco rally falls just short

May 10, 2012

IDAHO FALLS — The number was one on Thursday night for the Blackfoot Broncos as they stood one game away from the coveted berth into the state tournament. One team stood in their way and at the end of seven innings of hard fought baseball, one run prevented the Broncos from fulfilling their season long goal as they fell 9-8 to the Knights of Hillcrest at Melalueca Field.
"One more out," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said. "We made a huge step as a program. We were one out from getting into the state tournament. These kids battled all year long, they battled all day today. I'm proud of them and I think that our program is heading in the right direction."
