In the article "Tough day on links can’t stop Park City," the top two Park City scores were incorrectly printed. Thomas Kearns shot a 79 and Zach Nicholas was right behind him with an 80. Kearns joined Wasatch’s Brandon Wagstaff, who shot a 70, as the only two to break 80. Park City also had four of the top five low scores in the match.

Carina Crosby of Park City qualified for 2007 Deaflympics at the national trials held in Telluride. Colo. March 12-18. The final team selection was announced last week. Crosby, who is in the ninthth grade at Treasue Mountain International Middle School, qualified second in the giant slalom. The 16th winter Deaflympics will be held in Park City Feb 1-10, 2007. Crosby is looking forward to competing for the United States in her own backyard. "The hometown crowd will be a tremendous boost for me," she said.
