SANDY, Utah — A Utah man has won the title as the nation's best grocery bagger at competition in Las Vegas.
Andrew Hadlock of Sandy, Utah, topped 26 other competitors from around the country on Tuesday to become the National Grocers Association's Best Bagger Champion.
The 22-year-old Hadlock, an employee at the Macey's grocery store in Sandy who returned from a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, won $10,000.
The competition in Las Vegas was based on speed, proper bag building technique, style, attitude and appearance.
Hadlock told the Deseret News the state competition was much more intense because other previous national bagging champions took part.
He attends Salt Lake Community College and plans to pursue a business degree at a four-year school after graduation.
