Miners softball ends season with regionals loss to Tooele

Park Record | May 8, 2024 

In head coach Ashley Manusos’ first season with the program, her squad qualified for their first postseason since 2021 as the 23rd seed out of 24 teams in 4A. The majority of Park City programs switched over to 4A from the larger 5A classification this year. 

“A sweep isn’t the way you want to go out of a postseason matchup, but our athletes were able to play head-to-head for six innings for both games, which is something we have only done a handful of times this season,” said Manusos. “To think it was against a team who is ranked number 10 going into postseason, our girls have a lot to be proud of.”

Park Record |  | May 7, 2024 

Park City Board of Education President Andrew Caplan has dropped his bid for reelection, leaving candidates Eileen Gallagher or Dave McFawn to the race for District 2.

“After careful consideration I have made the decision to remove my name from the ballot for the school board election this fall,” Caplan said Tuesday. “When I first made the decision to run again, it was the Friday prior to the new filing deadline, and at the time no one had registered. Fortunately, prior to the deadline two more qualified candidates filed, and I believe it is time for new ideas and new enthusiasm for the role.”
