    It wasn’t the season Shoshoni seniors Tania St. Clair and Abigail Jennings had hoped for, but they still received senior recognition in a special way Saturday afternoon in the Lady Blues’ final home game of the season.

    Shoshoni head coach Max Mills contacted Rocky Mountain head coach Justin Moss to set up a special ceremony for the Lady Blue seniors.


    Shoshoni manager Cammie Cornell suited for the game along with Jennings and St. Clair. She lined up for the center jump, batted the ball to Jennings who then passed it to St. Clair for a layup.
