Mud Splash tourney scheduled for July 31

The annual Craig Chamber of Commerce Mud Splash volleyball tournament will return at 11 a.m. July 31 at Loudy-Simpson Park, 500 S. Ranney St.

The cost is $150 per team, which includes six commemorative T-shirts.

Each team can rotate in an unlimited number of players, but only six players per team are allowed into the pits.

There is a 16-team maximum, so space is limited.

Two referees are also needed to judge the pits.

Former players to honor retired coach

Former Moffat County High School basketball players are coming together to honor former coach Craig Mortensen.

There will be a celebration of Mortensen’s 30-plus years as head coach of the boys and girls basketball teams at 5 p.m. Aug. 7 at Craig Middle School.

The event will include refreshments and an alumni game.

Mortensen coached the boys team from 1976 to 1994, and the girls team from 1995 to 2010.

He retired in April after recording more than 500 career wins.

Anyone who is unable to attend can send notes and stories to mort.reunion@gmail.com.
