The Stansbury men’s track team has performed solidly all season so it wasn’t a major surprise that they captured the Region 7 track crown last Thursday in Vernal. The Stallions tallied 247 points compared to Cedar Valley’s 138.
Stansbury’s girls also finished first with 161 points with Uintah a close second at 140.
“The boys have been strong for most of the season so it was awesome to win region again,” said coach Steve Allen. “The girls were very much a wonderful surprise. We knew we had a chance to pull it off, but it would take everyone and our depth to win it. They amazingly came through.”
Tooele’s girls team finished fifth with 66.5 points and the men placed seventh with 24 points.
