GREEN RIVER – The final spring sport seasons are closing in on the finish line as teams will head to Regional Championships across the state this weekend. The 4A West squads will collide in Green River.
Not only will regional titles be up for grabs, it is also the final opportunity for athletes to qualify for the State Championships. Regional Tournaments get underway May 13. While Green River and Rock Springs will be home, Farson-Eden will not be too far away either. They will travel to Lander as they chase Regional gold.
While many will be focusing on getting that spot at state locked up, others have already qualified and will focus on individual gold.
