Sports briefs: CMS and MCHS rodeo team to finish fall season this weekend


The final Craig Middle School and Moffat County High School rodeo meet of the fall starts at 10 a.m. today at the Moffat County Fairgrounds.

Ten team members will be representing CMS and MCHS in events such as bull riding, bareback riding, goat tying and more.

Rodeo team sponsor Janice Edwards said about 75 to 100 competitors from around the state will be attending the meet, which continues at 10 a.m. Sunday.

“I think we’ll do really good,” Edwards said. “We’ve been excelling this year, and the hometown rodeo is always the best.”

Admission to the event is free.

Cross-country team hosts fall invitational

The Moffat County High School cross-country team will host its sole home meet of the season at 10 a.m. today at Loudy-Simpson Park.

The invitational includes six teams, with competitors racing along a 5,000-meter course.

Coach Todd Trapp encouraged residents to attend the event and support local runners.

“This is people’s only chance to watch us run in Craig,” Trapp said. “The home meet usually goes well for us. We have two great teams this year, both boys and girls, and they’re some of the top runners in the state.”

The girls are scheduled to run the course first, with the boys starting at about 10:45 a.m., depending on finishing times.
