Salt Lake City, UT – Next week, Salt Lake City will play host to the 2006-2007 Wheelchair Rugby Mountain Sectionals. It's an intense, extremely physical sport played by over twenty countries in the Paralympics. Friday on RadioWest, we're rebroadcasting our profile of an award-winning documentary. "Murderball" paints an unsentimental portrait of a ferocious sub-culture - and the quadriplegic athletes who have imperfect bodies, but a complete drive to win. (Rebroadcast)

  • The 2006-2007 Wheelchair Rugby Mountain Sectionals will be held March 23-25 at the HPER Center at the University of Utah. For more information, click here or call 801-805-6579. Click here for the weekend's full schedule.
