Utah team fares well in Las Vegas

Several of the state's club teams participated in high school basketball tournaments in Las Vegas last week. One that stood out was led by members of West Jordan's boys basketball team. The team went 3-0 in pool play and won a tournament game before it lost in the quarterfinals of the 17-under boys platinum bracket in the Las Vegas Easter Classic.

Players on the team were West Jordan's Rayes Gallegos, Jordan Weirick, Mason Sawyer, Tyson Udy and Jonah Blanchfield, Granger's Ray Tapusoa, Delta's Jaren Jeffery and West's Chris Barnes.

"All things considered, I think they looked a little sharper than we did and that was obvious. But my guys dug deep and held on and made the right plays when we needed to ... Nil-nil? Good result." — Sky View soccer coach Doyle Geddes, on his team earning a 0-0 double-overtime draw with top-ranked Bountiful on Tuesday.

Five on the rise

Girls track: Stephanie Muelleck

The Viewmont junior used this week's Davis Super Meet as a springboard to a strong season. Muelleck won the 300 hurdles, finishing in 46.09 seconds. She took second in the 100 hurdles with a time of 15.55 seconds. Both marks easily met state meet qualifying standards.

Baseball: Mark White

The Grantsville slugger almost single-handedly beat Hunter with his bat on Tuesday. He hit a two-run home run and had five RBIs in the Cowboys' 7-6 win over the 5A team.

Softball: Ashley Ostler

Ostler's pitching arm helped Syracuse make a successful debut in Region 1. She threw a two-hitter and had 10 strikeouts in the Titans' 4-1 win over Weber in the league opener for both teams on Tuesday.

Boys soccer: Joe Shinners

The Springville standout recorded his third goal of the season on Tuesday — in spectacular fashion. He scored in stoppage time of the second overtime period to give the Red Devils a 2-1 win over Provo. It was the first time Springville beat Provo in almost four years.

Baseball: Zac Clausing

Clausing made it look easy in the Buffaloes' debut in 4A's Region 7. He threw a three-hitter and also had three hits in Tooele's 9-1 win over Timpview on Tuesday.
