  • <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

Outfielder Alex Rios and reliever Kelvin Herrera have both succumbed to the highly contagious disease and are expected to be out for up to two weeks after being sent home and placed in quarantine, the team said. Manager Ned Yost told reporters before Tuesday's game against the Detroit Tigers that the rest of the clubhouse appeared to be fit.
