Silt Blue Rapids win division at Aspen Cup

The Silt Youth Sports Association would like to recognize the U10 Silt Blue Rapids Soccer Team for winning the Aspen Cup Tournament in their division on Sunday, Sept. 21. Our club would first like to thank the Aspen United Soccer Club and Aspen Parks and Recreation for hosting such a wonderful event. Our young men, coached by Fil Meraz and Luke Reilly, played a total of four games, including the final game versus the Glenwood Springs Mean Green Team. Both teams put up an amazing fight. Regular game time ended in a tie, then went to triple 5-minute overtime periods, and finally the match was decided in a penalty kick shoot-out. Our young men played with heart and displayed amazing character throughout the day. Thank you also to the families of the players for their unwavering support of the players and of this program!

Seven Stars Rebekah Lodge awards scholarships

Four students were recipients of scholarships given by Seven Stars Rebekah Lodge in Carbondale: Hailey Thompson (Roaring Fork High School), William Kelly, Yaritza Zarate (Roaring Fork) and Erika Arias (Roaring Fork). Funds came from the Near New Store located on the ground floor of the Rebekah’s building.

All items for sale in the store are donations from the surrounding communities. These scholarships are awarded to a Basalt or Carbondale student who did not receive other funds and really wants to further their education. Rebekahs have awarded these annually for several years.
