Sugar-Salem 2023 3A state champions

Sugar-Salem players celebrating state title at the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa.

NAMPA -- The road to redemption to get back on top is something most teams look to use as motivation. For the Sugar-Salem Diggers, the road to getting back on top is finally complete as they held off the Bonners Ferry Badgers 52-47 Saturday in the 3A championship game to win their eighth title in school history and first since 2020.

The first quarter became a bit of jitters for both teams. Bonners Ferry made a couple of turnovers but lead by two at the end of the quarter.
