Former Blackfoot star returns home

November 16, 2010

Blackfoot's favorite daughter will return to her old stomping grounds when Raimee Beck and her Air Force Academy teammates come to Reed Gym on Thursday night. They will play a women’s basketball game against Idaho State.
To say that I am looking forward to seeing Beck again is like saying I kind of like pizza. I plan on being there early Thursday night and I am expecting to see quite a few members of the community in the gym as well.
