With the game on the line, down 7-6, and with two runners on base, Kearns’ Druellie Kierstead stepped to the plate. She had smacked a home run in the fourth inning. This time around, Kierstead swung, and it looked as though the ball was going to find a gap. But Desert Hills outfielder Kirstie Ivie frantically started sprinting in for the ball. “It was like, ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

After hours of work, he was surprised at what, exactly, he found. He had believed there would be some correlation — that much he knew just from watching schools populated by students from lower-income families, such as Kearns, struggle athletically. But he wasn’t prepared for just how significant the disadvantage schools with student...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Her large lead had been sliced nearly in half in the previous inning, and she knew she had to refocus if she was going to keep the game from slipping away. Two innings and six outs later it was clear — she did just that. Alofipo had little trouble finishing off Kearns in the final two innings, and her offense provided some insurance runs, as West dispatched the Cougars 10-3 in a nonregion game Monday afternoon.

It seemed for a split second that the Cougars were going to take that momentum and run with it. But as Bushman landed, a questionable technical for hanging on the rim was called in Kearns’ Class 4A boys’ basketball state tournament opener against Spanish Fork. “I didn’t like it,” said Bushman, who finished with 16 points. “I didn’t like it, but it’s whatever.
