BYU track and field: BYU track star Shea Collinsworth finds marriage doesn't slow her down

Apr 28 5:34pm BYU - The Salt Lake Tribune
Provo • Her family can laugh about it now, and often does, but when the BYU track star then known as Shea Martinez called her parents in Layton to tell them she was dating a well-known BYU basketball player by the name of Kyle Collinsworth, she didn’t get the response she was expecting. “They kinda freaked out,” she said. “At first, they weren’t [excited] about it.” Shea’s parents, Evelyn and Anthony Martinez, were so disturbed by it that they jumped in the car the next day and drove to Provo t... <iframe src= http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp height= 1 width= 1 > </frame>...

Division of Wildlife Resources biologists are proposing almost identical rules for the 2017, 2018 and 2019 hunts to those that have governed upland game hunting since 2014.

BYU basketball: Cougars' 2017-18 roster still in flux due to transfers, retirings, Mika's decision

Apr 28 2:34pm BYU - The Salt Lake Tribune
While outlining what will be going on within the BYU basketball program the next few months, coach Dave Rose said Tuesday that “the most important thing for us is to finalize our roster for next season, and put that together.” He said it will be “an interesting process” because coaches don’t know yet whether star center Eric Mika will return to the team or stay in the NBA draft. “You kinda have to hold a space for him until he makes a decision exactly what he is going to do,” Rose said.

Utah forecast: Christmas in April? Snowy Friday gives way to clearing, warmer weekend

Apr 28 9:34am Weather - The Salt Lake Tribune
Maybe Ellen DeGeneres should tackle northern Utah’s forecast. After all, with near-freezing overnight temperatures and Friday morning snowfall, it looked a lot more like Christmas than spring. Kind of like her daytime TV programming of late, where the comedian has reprised her “Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaways” with an April version, complete with a dancing reindeer mascot. South and east of the Great Salt Lake, 1-3 inches of snow fell Friday morning. The forecast was for continued wind-blown ... <iframe src= http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp height= 1 width= 1 > </frame>...
