CEDAR CITY – The last day of the 2017 Larry H. Miller Utah Summer Games was the biggest day for gold-seekers as hundreds of medals were handed out to conclude the massive event.
Ultimate Frisbee, 3-on-3 soccer and arm wrestling were some of the trendier events to hand out gold, while the more traditional events like track and field, basketball and baseball also awarded medals for the best in the state of Utah.
“We couldn’t be more excited,” Games director Casey McClellan said. “Overall, it was a fantastic year. A lot of great things happened and we’re very excited in our first year under the Larry H. Miller umbrella. Soccer is something we need to look at to get those numbers back to where they were, but we’re really excited about basketball and a lot of individual sports had growth. Once we get athletes here, we get great retention, which means we’re doing a lot of good things.”
