Craig sports briefs: Craig pool league seeking more players for Sunday nights

The Craig Billiards Congress of America pool 8-ball league was set to begin Sunday but still is seeking members for its Sunday league.

The Monday league played as expected this week, with six teams. Sundays have been postponed to begin Sept. 29 now to allow current teams time to find more players. If there still are not enough players, BCA could choose to cancel Sunday play, according to an email from the league.

Craig BCA plays at 5 p.m. Sundays and at 6 p.m. Mondays at Popular Bar, 24 W. Victory Way.

For more information, call Jolene Walls at 970-620-0056 or email the league at

Parks and Rec basketball signups open

The youth basketball leagues through Craig Parks and Recreation are open for registration.

The leagues for third- and fourth-grade boys and girls and fifth- and sixth-grade boys and girls will begin with mandatory skills days Monday through Sept. 26 at Sunset Elementary School. The skills days and league seasons will focus on teaching children the basics of the game and help develop an understanding of the rules of basketball.

Dribbling, shooting, passing, rebounding and offensive and defensive principles all will be covered.

Games will begin in October. Registration closes Wednesday.

Parks and Rec seeking football, basketball officials

The Craig Parks and Recreation youth football season is approaching quickly, and the league is looking for officials.

The youth basketball leagues for third- through sixth-graders also are coming up, and Parks and Rec is seeking officials for that, as well. For basketball, prospective officials must inquire about the 2013 season by Oct. 16.

Officials must be at least 14. For more information about football, contact Craig Parks and Rec at 970-826-2006. For basketball, call 970-826-2004.

No reschedule date yet for Moffat County-Berthoud

The MCHS boys soccer team was set to host Berthoud on Saturday, but after flooding hit the area, Berthoud could not make it to Craig.

The game was planned to be made up sometime this week, but the Spartans still are scrambling to make up all sorts of athletic events. As of Tuesday, it had not been rescheduled.

There is a possibility of the game being abandoned if it takes too long to reschedule because it is not a mandatory league contest.
