Capital coach Simis: 5A SIC football undervalued all year
Capital High football coach said the 5A Southern Idaho Conference has been undervalued all season. The league claimed all four spots in the Idaho 5A state semifinals, with Capital hosting Rocky Mountain and Eagle hosting Mountain View.
The Eagle High football team beat Capital 36-32 thanks a to key defensive play in the final two minutes. Devon Young and Gannon Matthews combined to jar the ball loose on a potential fourth-down, game-winning TD pass.
The Capital High football team beat Borah 39-7, allowing the Eagles to continue their Gurkha warrior tradition. Each year after beating Borah, Capital will sheath its 3-foot long Gurhka sword in a ceremony at the high school.
Rocky Mountain's Carter Kuehl (5A boys), Hillcrest's Araoluwa Omotowa (5A girls), Twin Falls' Muamer Mujic (4A boys) and Ridgevue's Chloe Barylski (4A girls) won the 100-meter races at the state track and field meet on May 19 at Dona Larsen Park.
Mountain View High girls basketball parent Craig Kreiser threw his jacket at a referee during a Dec. 1, 2017, game against Capital. Kreiser was banned from all high school sports and activities for a year, but he won't face criminal charges.
