The Wildcats’ only loss of the tournament was against Green Canyon 25-22, 25-20, 23-25, 25-23 as the team took third place.

Also this week, Woods Cross lost a five-setter to Ridgeline 25-16, 22-25, 25-20, 17-25, 15-9 Aug. 22.

“It was a battle,” said head coach Josey Hilton. “Adia [Cook] came through with some amazing defense for us.”

Alisi Tapa’atoutai led the Wildcats offensively with 11 kills and three aces while Ella Hinton and Mille Oscarson also put away nine kills each. Dani Brey led the defense with 19 digs with Cook

adding 14 and Hinton 11 while Annie Lewis recorded three blocks at the net.


Davis began the season with a 25-20, 25-16, 25-21 loss to American Fork Aug. 24. 

Jenna Sullivan led the Darts with nine kills, hitting .368, in the loss. The senior also recorded four blocks while senior Anna Harkness had 15 digs to also help defensively.


After a season-opening upset of 5A’s top team in Bountiful, the Phoenix squad has lost its next two matches.

Against Morgan Aug. 22, Farmington lost 25-14, 25-22, 27-25 and they then lost to Mountain Ridge 25-14, 18-25, 25-23, 25-15.


Viewmont lost to Herriman 25-11, 25-14, 25-8 Aug. 22.

“Herriman was a tough competitor in their opening season match and they are a well-coached and respected program in the volleyball community,” said head coach Karl Lippa. “We did our best to adjust to their diverse offense and attack styles, and I am pleased that our players made some adjustments to help improve our chances of success.”

The Vikings are now 5-5 on the young season. “All five of our losses have been to quality 6A schools,” Lippa said. “I am pleased with how we have played in our 10 matches which have come in a seven-day window. We have come out with many lessons learned and a list of improvements to make while highlighting some excellent, positive surprises.”
