Seemingly every year at least a handful of Cache Valley athletes accept scholarship offers to play college soccer, and 2019 is no different.

Editor’s note: This is the first in a two-part series profiling Cache Valley class of 2019 soccer players who have signed with college programs.

The 2018-19 high school swimming season was certainly a memorable one for Jake Walters, who broke the overall state record in the 100-yard backstroke and was selected as the 4A Boys Swimmer of the Year.

The fourth annual Rocky Mountain Kickoff is all about new faces and fresh ideas, including a fan prize giveaway of up to $500,000.

At the end of last season, Logan girls basketball guard Amber Kartchner saw a flood of accolades come in — All-State, Region 12 MVP and All-Valley MVP.

There’s no question Mason Falslev is an extremely talented basketball player and one of the best high school athletes to come out of Cache Valley in recent memory — if not ever.

Capturing a state title will be a tall order, but it was still a pretty solid Day 1 for West Side’s boys track & field program at the 2A State Championships.

It wasn’t the ending he was hoping for, but Green Canyon’s Ryan Jeppson still closed out the most illustrious career by a high school boys tennis player from Cache Valley in recent memory.

Even without standout jumper Savannah Royal, Preston’s girls track & field team still managed to finish second in a formidable 10-team district.

Five local boys tennis players still have aspirations of capturing state titles as they won their first two matches at the 4A State Championships on Friday at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City.

MILLVILLE — What’s already been a memorable season for Logan’s boys track & field program continues to get even better.

NORTH LOGAN — Sky View fell behind 4-3 at halftime in its playoff game against Syracuse but proceeded to outscore the Titans 8-2 in the second half to win 11-6 and advance to the second round of the UHSLL Division B playoffs.

With the top three teams locked into their spots, the only drama was who would get the fourth and final state playoff berth when the Region 12 girls golf teams competed for the final time this season.

It’s been a banner senior season for Sky View standout distance runner Arianna Steiner, who proved she was an elite athlete by finishing third at the 2018 4A State Cross Country Championships.

NORTH LOGAN — It had been seven years since Logan’s boys tennis program captured the last of its 11 straight region tournament titles.

SMITHFIELD — Thursday’s matchup on the diamond between Sky View and Ridgeline shared a couple of eerie similarities with their contest on Wednesday with one key exception: Sky View made (more) winning plays on its way to a 6-3 victory.

After a strong performance at its own invitational last Saturday, Ridgeline carried that over to a Region 12 outing on Wednesday.
