The District Tournaments are underway! Teams are now finally in their must-win scenarios in order to qualify for the State Tournaments. The Idaho Falls Metro has plenty of teams with the potential to make some runs at State. Let’s take at look some of the major results in the District Tournaments. 

Thunder Ridge avoids Upset from Highland

Highland nearly pulled the upset but fell, 52-50, on the road.

The upset bid just came up short but it may have been Highland’s best performance all-season even though they came up short. 

Highland led by a half-dozen at halftime and even entered the fourth quarter up seven. The upset started to become a potential reality until Thunder Ridge put their foot on the gas in the fourth. But an 18-8 deficit in the final period is what kept Highland out of the 5A District 5-6 Championship.

Big man Mason Mickelson led the Rams with 16 points. Sophomore Jayden Wright added 11. Driggs for Thunder Ridge led all scorers with 22 showcasing his scoring ability especially in the fourth.
