With a combined team score of nearly 460, the Stansbury Stallions track and field team won the 5A Region 7 championship.
Tooele’s girls finished fourth with 57 team points; the boys finished sixth with 29.3.
According to head track coach Steve Allen, it was the depth of the team that helped them succeed in each event.
“We had many other kids finish in the top-8 to score points,” he said. “Our distance-running kids saw all five competitors score and placed five out of the top-eight possible spots in each race.”
