– The playoffs have begun! The Class B boys kicked off the postseason yesterday with their first round. Here are the results:
– No. 1 Copper Hills v. No. 16 Timpview – Copper Hills wins 18-4 | Instagram | The game was close through the first half but the Grizzlies pulled away in the second half. The result was disappointing for the Thunderbirds, but this season was their first winning season since winning the D-II title in 2007 which should bode well for the future of Timpview lacrosse.
