Rigby tops Blackfoot in OT

Izzy Arave looks for another three-pointer.

If you aren’t paying attention to the Blackfoot girls, you might be missing out.

In this week’s state media poll, released Tuesday afternoon, the Broncos rose to the top spot in 4A, and for good reason. Last week, Blackfoot went 3-0, with wins over Hillcrest, Century and most notably, 5A power Thunder Ridge.

That will earn you some votes.

Elsewhere, Sugar-Salem maintained its hold on the top spot in 3A, as did Ririe in 2A. In 1A-D2, Mackay leapt into the top five, securing a spot at No. 4.
