Horseshoe Season Closes with Coal Miners Memorial Tournament


As the horseshoe season comes to an end, participants gathered at the Price pits to compete in one final tournament on Saturday. The inaugural Coal Miners Memorial Horseshoe Tournament raised approximately $800 for the memorial fund and attracted 18 teams to the event.

Participants also donated non-perishable food items for displaced flood victims throughout Carbon County. According to event organizer Rochelle Badback, the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office will distribute these items for the horseshoe league.

The top three teams were awarded prizes and include the following:

  • First place – Clinton “Chief” Badback and Dusty Lofley
  • Second place – Corey Leavitt and Jarod Biondich
  • Third place – Mikey Lofley and Rhett Popejoy

Badback would like to thank the Coal Miners Memorial Committee, Price City, Little Ceasars and Cowboy Kitchen for supporting the event.
