The Minico Girls Basketball team defeated the Skyview Hawks to capture hardware Saturday at Mountain View High School. The Consolation championship was well deserved after defeating Sandpoint High School the night before and losing to eventual state champions the Middleton Vikings in a very close contest until the closing seconds. We are so proud of our girls and what they have accomplished! Way to represent with class and hard work!!
Good luck to our Lady Spartans basketball team. They are off to the state tournament which starts tomorrow at 3:00 at Mtn View High School in Meridian. They will face the Middleton Vikings who are the winners of the District 3 championship. The full tournament coverage can be listened to on the audio cast at Idahosports.com.

The Boys Wrestling team is on a mission! They have won every tournament and every team match they have entered in this 2016-17 season. It’s been a terrific run capped off by a commanding victory to claim the Great Basin Conference Championship at Canyon Ridge High School held today. Next up for the Spartans will be the state tournament over in Nampa next week Feb 24th-25th at the Ford Idaho Center. We want to wish all our wrestlers good luck at state!!

After a hard fought 32 minutes of competition on Burley’s home floor, the Minico Girls’ Basketball team came away with a 3 point victory that punches their ticket to the state tournament on February 16th, 17th, and 18th in Boise!
The girls had to overcome a lot of adversity this postseason after losing two starters (Maura Merrill-knee injury & Jilian Gilchrist-broken hand). Coach Bateman’s theme has been “Next Girl Up” and so that’s what the girls did on Tuesday night. Sparked by play from not only the new starting lineup but also from a couple of key contributors off the bench helping the Spartans pull through. Junior Rachel Baliola and Freshman Bailey Black came up big off the bench with timely three pointers. None bigger shots than the one Baliola made with less than a minute of left on the clock with teams deadlocked at 40 points a piece. The shot gave the Spartans a 3 point lead which lead they didn’t relinquish again.
The Spartans move on to play the #3 seed Twin Falls Bruins on Thursday night in Twin Falls at 7:00pm. This championship game will determine seeding at the state tournament next weekend in Boise at Mountain View High School. The Spartans will need to defeat the Bruins twice to claim the title. All the brackets for both districts and state tournaments posted at Idahosports.com.
Congrats to the Lady Spartans and good luck in the District Championship!
Minico Wrestling has been running the table this season! They have won the Bucks Bags, Spring Creek, Bonne Invite, Tim Matthews, and now add the Red Halverson wrestling tournaments all this season. This past weekend the wrestlers did what had not been done since 2006 at Minico and that is win their own Red Halverson Memorial Tournament. The field consisted of 21 teams from across the state. Team results are listed below. We had multiple athletes in the championship rounds but hats of to Eddie Daniels the lone winner of his 120lbs bracket.
