The top-ranked team in 5A beat Box Elder 56-40 Feb. 3, increasing a one-point advantage after the first quarter to an eight-point edge by halftime. A 28-point effort in the second half doubled up the margin of victory in Bountiful’s sixth-straight win.

Jordyn Harvey led the Redhawks with 15 points while her sister Taylor added 13.

Bountiful is now 6-0 in Region 5 and 15-1 overall this season.


Davis, who is ranked fourth in 6A, defeated Farmington 52-40 Jan. 31. The Darts led a close game by just four points at the half and five heading into the fourth quarter. Davis outscored the Phoenix squad 18 to 11 to end the game.

Etuati T’maea scored 16 points while Kate Richards and Avery Dain both put in 10 each to lead the Darts offensively.

Against Weber Feb. 3, Davis won 40-17, breaking open a 17-13 game in the first half with a 23-4 advantage in the second half, including holding the Warriors scoreless in the fourth quarter.

Kendra Kitchen led the way with 28 points in the big win.

The Darts remain undefeated through nine games in Region 1 and are 16-1 on the year.

Woods Cross

Woods Cross defeated Viewmont 52-30 Feb. 2. The Wildcats were up 26 to 6 by halftime and cruised to the win.

“We played a really good game,” said head coach David Simon. “We got off to a really good start and that has kind of been how things go for us. If we can get a good start then it keeps our confidence up. I was really proud of the girls for their effort and executing our game plan. 

Georgia Hatton’s double-double led the way for Woods Cross with 13 points and 15 rebounds while Kenna Cowley had 15 points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals in the win.

“I really want to credit the entire team for their defensive effort and really helping each other and playing together,” Simon said. “Our rebounding was really great as well. We had several others that contributed to the win as well. It was a good team win for sure.”

The Wildcats improved to 3-3 in Region 5 and 12-5 overall.


In Farmington’s loss to Davis, the Phoenix hung with the Darts throughout the first three quarters until Davis’ Avery Dain and Etuati T’maea both hit three pointers and T’maea completed a three-point play “to put the game away,” according to FHS head coach Van Price.

Marissa Marchant led Farmington with a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds.

The Phoenix are now 3-5 in Region 1 play and 9-8 this year.


In the loss to Woods Cross, Viewmont managed just single-digit scoring in three of the game’s four quarters with the Vikings scoring half of their points in the third quarter alone, keeping the contest at a 20-point disparity.

Callie Peterson led the Vikings with 10 points while Emma Mulitalo’s five rebounds were tops on the boards.

Viewmont fell to 3-3 in the Region 5 standings and 9-10 on the season.
