Kacie Burnett was three-for-thee with two runs scored and two stolen bases. Marquez was three-for -four with two RBIs and two stolen bases. Hailey Breakwell was two-for-four with two RBIs. ISU tallied 12 hits and five stolen bases in the outing.

Welcome to the Newest Page for DSN.  The Dynamic Social Network.  We are currently putting a number of things together and hope to have a beta test on some broadcasts very soon.  We are not going to be like the Federal Government and just start things that don't work.  We will be testing and making sure things are working as we go along.  Yes, It has been a hard road but we are starting to smooth most of the bumps out and will be moving right along as the new year starts.  Thank you for your support in all that we do and we look forward to continually serving each community as we stretch out across the state and on as we stretch to other states.  Many new things will continue to come on board and we will have a new look and logo.  We will still be bringing you as much information and of course many broadcasts as we work to better the broadcasts, which I think you will be able to see.  So pardon our Dust as we work to bring you as much as possible from all over the state.  Look for scores from the night before.  Run downs of games that are coming up and events that will be broadcast.  Remember, you may have to click on a different button if you broadcast is in our beta tests for the evening but then you'll really get to see what the new look will be.  So be patient as we grow and realize it all gets better from here as we add more events from communities from all over Idaho.  Thank You,  Bruce Herker - President TriStar Broadcasting - Dynamic Social Network.
