Utah

Weber State

FOOTBALL: Weber State will hold its annual spring scrimmage noon Saturday at Stewart Stadium.

The scrimmage is free to the public, which will get its first look at the football team under the direction of new Wildcat coach Jerry Graybeal.

"We will balance our offense this year by combining an ag-gres-sive running game with passing plays," said Graybeal. "Defensively we want to implement stronger passing coverage."

Fans will even get a chance to interact with the team. During each quarter, two fans will have the opportunity to huddle with the team and designate offensive and defensive plays.

Junior colleges

UVSC BASEBALL: Utah Valley State College is in Twin Falls, Idaho, for the Region 18 Tournament. The Wolverines open play at 4 p.m. Thursday, taking on the winner of a 10 a.m. matchup between Eastern Utah and Ricks. UVSC is having a record-setting year, with its 42-13 record.

SLCC BASEBALL: Salt Lake Community College has found a West Jordan diamond in the rough, so to speak, having searched for a homefield since starting its baseball team last year.

SLCC's location is at the northwest corner of 9000 South and Bangerter Highway in West Jordan, with plans now under way to construct the Bruins' diamond as part of the college's expansion plans in the area.

The Bruins currently use Aleander Dahl Field in Midvale for SWAC home games.

The three-phase project calls for an initial $800,000 phase, providing for field development, dugouts and seating. Additional phases include locker facilities, concessions, restrooms, press box, indoor hitting and storage.

Utah Jazz president Frank Layden is honorary chairman of the SLCC stadium committee, with others including former National League manager Herman Franks, SLCC athletic director Norma Carr, baseball coach Bill Groves and student president Sim Aguirre.
