Moffat County juniors lead way for Bulldogs at state track meet

The rise in the shot put state rankings continued for Garrett Spears on Thursday. Two weeks ago, Spears, a Moffat County High School junior, was ranked 22nd and didn’t look to be competing in the 4A state meet. At the regional meet May 14 in Grand Junction, Spears threw a personal-record 48 feet, 2 inches to move up to 11th and make the state cut.
