Sawtooth Conference releases all-conference basketball teams
Many Americans have resorted to creating their own sports during this difficult time in our country, my favorite is the sock puppet that eats cars from a window.
Thankfully, most of the winter sports at the high school level escaped the impact of COVID-19, like basketball for instance.
Now the Sawtooth Conference releases its list for the all-conference teams.
The Most Valuable Player is Lighthouse senior Casper Block, who ended his senior campaign on a bang.
