Morgan High girls tennis won the 3A state championship in dramatic fashion Saturday, clinching the title over region rival Grantsville by beating the Cowboys in the No. 2 doubles final, which was the penultimate championship match of the tournament.

Trojans sophomores Ryann and Sydney Jensen got the win at No. 2 doubles, 6-4, 6-2, against Grantsville’s team of Lauren Holt and Afton Orgill to put the team title out of reach.

Katelyn Steel won the No. 1 singles championship for Morgan with a 6-1, 6-3 sweep of Grantsville’s Sophie Crosby.

MHS finished with 19 points to Grantsville’s 18. It’s the Trojans’ second state tennis title in three seasons.


Woods Cross High tied with Highland for the 5A girls tennis state championship Saturday. Both teams had 17 points.

WXHS had two state champions: freshman Sage Bergeson with a 6-4, 6-4 win in the No. 1 singles final against Highland’s Dylan Lolofie and freshman Emmy Richards’ 7-6 (1), 6-4 win against Olympus freshman Savannah Rosenhan in the No. 2 singles final.



St. Joseph High girls soccer earned the No. 5 seed in the upcoming 2A state playoffs as the state tournament brackets were unveiled Saturday. The Jayhawks are scheduled to host No. 12 San Juan on Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Utah Military Academy is the No. 13 seed visiting No. 4 American Heritage that same day. In 4A, Bear River is the No. 12 seed and visits No. 12 Green Canyon, also on Wednesday.

Wednesday is also when second-round 3A playoff games will happen. Morgan and Ogden are scheduled to host games, while No. 10 Ben Lomond will play at No. 7 Judge Memorial.


No. 13 Grantsville 8, No. 20 Layton Christian 0



GARLAND — In a game that was postponed to Saturday afternoon due to lightning storms on Friday, Mountain Crest ensured Bear River finished with a winless regular season for the first time since 1950 by beating the Bears 28-14.

The game was tied 7-7 at halftime thanks to the Bears’ (0-9, 0-5 Region 11) Wyatt Roberts returning a punt for a score. BR quarterback Owen Olsen threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Gage Hansen to tie the score 14-14 in the third quarter, but the Mustangs controlled affairs after that.

BR now awaits its playoff seed and who it will face in the 4A state playoffs.
