The Grantsville High tennis team claimed its 39th region tennis crown at the Region 12 tournament.

“This is a very big win for us,” noted Tooele coach Ron Gray. “It gives us a really good chance to win the region championship Friday at home. The kids were focused on getting after Judge.”

Utah Jazz

Just over 12 hours after Utah’s season came to a crushing end in game six of their first round playoffs against the Dallas Mavericks, Jazz general manager Justin Zanik walked into the press room at Zions Bank Basketball Campus to answer some difficult questions.

Ever composed, Zanik walked local media through Utah’s thought process for the upcoming offseason, addressing rumors regarding head coach Quin Snyder and star players Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. 

“Quin Snyder is one of the best coaches in the NBA,” Zanik said. “There is no other partner I would rather have as a coach and as a leader of our players and as a partner in our front office than Quin Snyder.”

“I think Donovan and Rudy, along with some of our other players, are hugely important to the success of this organization,” he added. “When you’re talking about building a championship house, it doesn’t exist just on a foundation, it exists on everything else as well. Those two are three-time all-star players, consecutive all-stars, Defensive Player of the Year, all-NBA candidates. And any time that we can add to that, complement that, strengthen that — because this competition is a team game, and they’ve been huge contributors for us.”

Fewer deer permits

The Utah Wildlife Board approved the big game hunting permits for the 2022 seasons — which included a decrease in the number of general-season deer hunting permits — as well as a variety of other big game recommendations during its Thursday meeting.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources manages deer, elk and other wildlife in accordance with approved management plans in order to help maintain healthy wildlife populations across the state. DWR biologists evaluate the health of deer populations throughout the year (through GPS collaring efforts and surveys) and also assess the previous year’s harvest data from the deer and elk hunts. Those data are factored in with current habitat and environmental conditions across the state — which includes the extreme drought conditions — before the hunting permit recommendations are made for the upcoming hunting seasons.

The current management plan includes an objective to have just over 400,000 deer across Utah — there are currently an estimated 305,700 deer in the state.

“We’ve had several years of drought and are still facing ongoing extreme drought conditions statewide, which has a significant impact on the survival rates of deer,” DWR Big Game Coordinator Covy Jones said. “We currently have more demand for deer hunting in Utah than we have the supply for. While it is antlerless deer permits, not buck permits, that impact deer  population numbers, we are recommending a decrease for both types of permits. We use the data and management plans to make proactive recommendations to achieve healthier herds.”

The wildlife board voted to approve a total of 73,075 general-season deer hunting permits, which is a 950-permit decrease from the previous year. Of the 29 total deer hunting units across the state, 13 have decreased permit numbers from the previous year.

“The number of permits we recommended for 2022 will help us achieve or maintain the objectives detailed in Utah’s mule deer management plan for harvest size, animal quality and hunting opportunity,” Jones said.
