LOGAN – The opening round of the playoffs are done and multiple Region 11 teams are advancing to Bracket Play in the 4A softball playoffs. In the Super Regionals, all of the higher-seeded Region 11 teams won their best-of-three series. The Mountain Crest Mustangs required three games to get past Hurricane, but all other Region 11 teams got their series wrapped up in two games. Double elimination Bracket Play gets underway May 17-18 at the Cottonwood Softball Complex located at 4400 South 1300 East in Millcreek, with brackets now re-seeded after the Super Regionals. Multiple games will begin Wednesday at 12 noon, including #1 Ridgeline facing #8 Mountain Crest on Field 2. #2 Bear River takes on #7 Cedar at 12 p.m. on Field 4. And #6 Sky View takes on #3 Desert Hills on Field 3, also at 12 p.m. Because of their end-of-season RPI rankings as the #1 and #2 teams in softball, neither Ridgeline nor Bear River needed to participate in Super Regionals last week. In the First Bracket, the winner of the Ridgeline vs Mountain Crest game will face the winner of #4 Snow Canyon vs #5 Crimson Cliffs at 2:30 p.m. on Field 2 that

Logan Hammer, Brennan Benson claim titles on last day of MW Outdoor Championships – Cache Valley Daily

CLOVIS, California — Logan Hammer and Brennan Benson provided the highlights for Utah State track & field on the final day of the Mountain West Outdoor Championships, claiming the first individual titles for USU since 2019. In the team standings, the Aggie men held on for a fifth-place finish with 73 points, while the women finished eighth with 50.5 points. USU’s titles came in rapid succession. After clearing three previous heights, Hammer cleared 5.25 meters (17-2.75) on his second attempt, which proved to be enough to claim the MW pole vault championship over last year’s champion and runner-up, Colorado State’s Eldridge Harris and Air Force’s Caiden Macktinger, respectively. Hammer’s mark ranks fourth all-time at Utah State and ranks fifth nationally among freshmen. Also in the pole vault, sophomore Robbie Walker placed sixth with a mark of 4.65 meters (15-3). “Just to clear that bar has been a relief because I’ve been chasing that bar all season,” Hammer said. “Chasing 17 feet, through the ups and the downs. I thought about my mom. She told me today, ‘I don’t want anything for Mother’s Day except for a PR.’ So to give her that PR, not only one PR but two, and
