A number of Tooele County athletes achieved greatness not only on the field, but in the classroom as well, and were honored during their respective sports’ state championships last month. Stansbury senior Dylan Spencer was named to the Class 3A Academic All-State boys soccer team. Grantsville’s Hogan Turner and Tooele’s Mason Hansen earned the same honor for baseball. In softball, Grantsville’s Breanna Dzierzon, Tooele’s Trista Fackrell and Stansbury’s Ashley Thompson were honored. Stansbury’s Josh Larsen and Mikelle Rogers were named Academic All-State in track and field. Tooele’s Brandon Boren was honored in boys tennis. Grantsville’s Abby Silva was named Academic All-State in girls golf.
Salt Lake Bees
The Bees lost for just the second time in their past seven games, falling 5-3 to the Las Vegas 51s on Wednesday night at Smith’s Ballpark in Salt Lake City. Amed Rosario’s two-run home run in the top of the seventh inning proved to be the difference and spoiled an otherwise-strong outing from Bees starting pitcher Troy Scribner, who fell to 6-2 on the season. Salt Lake (33-27), which beat Las Vegas 2-1 on Tuesday, wrapped up the series against the 51s on Thursday with an afternoon game that was not complete at press time.
