  • <b>Rodeo queen....</b><br><br>
Moab resident Kortney Backus, 16, a junior at Grand County High School, competed in her first rodeo of the high school season Aug. 14 and 15 in Oakley, Utah. Backus was the top point-earner in the rodeo queen competition at the two-day event, which was hosted by North Summit and South Summit high schools. “Points earned at each rodeo add up to see who qualifies for state in June of 2016,” said Backus, who is now first in the state standings in the queening category. In other action during the rodeo, Backus roped a calf in 4.5 seconds, putting her in 15th place out of 75 competitors in the calf-roping contest. She also competed in goat tying. Backus competes as a member of Carbon High School’s rodeo team because Grand County does not have a rodeo team. Her next scheduled event on the Utah High School Rodeo circuit will be held in Vernal Aug. 21-22.                                                                Courtesy photo

    (The Sports Xchange) - A day of losses concluded with a win for the Seattle Mariners when they beat the Chicago White Sox 2-0 at U.S. Cellular Field on Friday. Paced by a dominant performance from right-hander Taijuan Walker, the Mariners evened the series at a game apiece despite struggling to convert scoring opportunities into runs for the second straight night. "He shut them down," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said of Walker.

    MLB: New York Yankees at Atlanta Braves(The Sports Xchange) - Shortstop Didi Gregorius went a surprising 4-for-5 with a homer and a career-high six RBIs as the New York Yankees broke out for a 15-4 interleague rout of the Atlanta Braves to remain 1 1/2 games behind Toronto in the AL East. "I felt really good," said Gregorius, whose only out was a long drive to center field. "It was big (to get that start) and it probably got our guys relaxed a little bit," manager Joe Girardi said.

    LPGA: Canadian Pacific Women's Open - Final Round(Reuters) - Taiwan's Yani Tseng produced a stunning eagle-birdie finish to seize a one-stroke lead in the weather-disrupted second round of the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic in Prattville, Alabama, on Friday. The former world number one covered her final six holes in five under par to shoot a flawless eight-under 64 on the Senator Course at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Tseng struck a six-iron to four feet to set up an eagle at her 17th hole, the par-five eighth, and then had to wait out a 96-minute weather delay due to the threat of lightning before returning to the course to pocket her sixth birdie of the round to post an 10-under total of 134.
