County track goes to carbon meet
Carbon High School sponsored the annual Carbon High Farm Bureau Invitational track meet last Saturday and both Emery High and Green River High had athletes that participated on a day that couldn't decide if it was winter or summer or spring as we saw it all that day.
For the boys, Stansbury High was first followed by Richfield High and Carbon High. Emery finished ninth and Green River finished 12th. For the girls, Stansbury also won this followed by San Juan with Carbon fourth. The Emery girls also finished ninth.
