Utes-At-A-Glance

SoccerUte coach Rich Manning announced that five high school seniors have signed letters of intent to play soccer for the Utes next season. “This is a small but potent group,” Manning said. “These five new Utes will have an immediate impact.” The new recruits feature four players from Utah, and one from Arizona. Jen Christoffers, a forward from Phoenix, was first team All-State for three consecutive years. Goalkeeper Lynzee Lee played her senior year at Alta high school, after moving from Montana. Katy Reineke, an East High midfielder, was the 2004 4-A MVP for the state champion Leopards. Goalkeeper Emalee Rogers was on the 2004 5-A champion Viewmont team, and was named second team all-state. Danielle Sample was a midfielder for Brighton. She was an all-state honorable mention as a senior after tearing her ACL as a junior.

Men’s TennisThe 4-0 Ute tennis team heads to California this weekend for matches against St. Mary’s (2-5), Santa Clara (2-3), and San Francisco (1-5). Assistant coach Graeme Cox is hopeful about the Utes’ chances. “If we play up to our potential, then I believe we have a chance to win all of these matches,” Cox said. The Utes are coming off a successful weekend, knocking off Idaho State and Weber State. Both victories came on 7-0 scores.

GolfThe U golf team finished third at the Southern Utah University tournament, with a 13 over par score of 589 in the three-day tournament. Denver University finished atop the field, with a 14-under par 562. Freshman Dustin Pimm was the leader for the Utes. His one-under par 143 was good enough for a fourth-place tie. Junior Steve Newren finished 11th.
