The Wasatch Youth Telemark program, "Tele Tribe," will be hosting their 2009 season open house this Friday evening at 7 p.m. at White Pine Touring, located at 1790 Bonanza Drive. The open house will include movies, pizza, prizes and a chance to meet the coaches and Tribe members. Attendees can register for the season and view the event calendar. The "Tele Tribe" provides the Park City community with a youth club program for telemark ski instruction in a safe, non-competitive atmosphere where kids can learn and share their skills with one another. The program is open to all levels and abilities, and for ages 8 to 18. The Tribe meets at The Canyons Resort on Sunday afternoons from noon to 4 p.m.
Hart shows heart
Park City High School graduate Stephen Hart has been a key part of Middlebury’s soccer dominance this season. The Panthers are currently 7-0-1 after a 2-0 shutout victory over Tufts. Middlebury is riding a 17-game unbeaten streak dating back to last season, including 14 shutouts in that span. Against Tufts, Hart, a junior, had a cross that was headed in by Tyler Macnee. Earlier in the week, the Panthers picked up a 3-0 shutout win over Trinity at home. Following a scoreless first half, Middlebury got on the board at the 55:37 mark, when Hart scored his first goal of the season, converting a short crossing pass.
ULA names new head
The Utah Lacrosse Association (ULA) has announced the appointment of Lisa Schmidt as the new executive director. She will replace Paul Larkin, who is leaving to spend several months in Africa. Schmidt has served as the executive director of Save Our Canyons for the previous five years working on conservation issues in the central Wasatch. Development of lacrosse programs in Southern Utah, coach and referee development, building partnerships with local business and community members and sanctioning of the sport at the high school level are at the top of the long list of items Schmidt hopes to explore during her first few months. The Utah Lacrosse Association currently has over 4,000 members throughout the state including Park City High School.
