MIDDLETON HIGH SCHOOL LEADS BIG SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP EVENT AT FIREBIRD

Four racers from Middleton High School helped pushed their team into the early point’s lead at the United Dairymen Spring Championships presented by the College of Western Idaho at Firebird. In an all Middleton High final round, James Hammond collected top honors in High School Bracket #4 by stopping teammate Michelle Platt. In the “AA” standings, Initial Point High claimed the early season lead in the smaller school point’s standings thanks in large part to Bracket #3 winner Michael Riley.

Two racers were able to repeat their success from the 2011 Spring Championships. Both Christopher Northup also won Bracket #1 for Borah High and Jeremy Wanders, the winner of Street Bike, won titles for the second straight year.

Weather for the first stop in the six-race series was positively gorgeous as temperatures climbed in the upper 60’s under sun-filled skies on the Alcohol Free and Drug Awareness Day presented by Idaho’s News Channel 7.
