This Wednesday in the sports section, we featured in-depth looks at two Jackson area endurance adventurers, while checking in on our local baseball team, and learning about the difficulties of exercising in areas of low air quality.

Here are the highlights from the July 21 weekly:

• In 2019, extreme endurance trail runner Kelly Halpin and her partner Fred Most set out on an innovative route that could follow the path of the hydrological divide through the Tetons. Their 70-mile journey is depicted in their recent short film "Teton Center Punch," which is available for viewing on Vimeo.com.

• Professional mountain biker Kait Boyle's life changed in December 2019 after a violent car accident. Pushing herself to make a full recovery, Boyle hasn't let the setback get in the way of her fast-paced biking lifestyle. Guest contributor Stephen Dyer digs deeper into the bikers inspirational comeback.

• The Post 43 Jackson Giants are 4-2 in their last six games, and are playing some of their best baseball of the season. The team began their final regular season series against Rock Springs Wednesday night, and will then head to Laramie for the AA state tournament, beginning Monday.
