Third-ranked Bountiful picked up a win while Davis has now won six of its seven games early on this spring. 


The Redhawks beat Viewmont 26-4 March 14.

“We won behind the pitching of Ella Miller who had nine strikeouts,” said head coach Butch Latey. “We also raised our batting averages 60 points with our 16 hits.”

Offensively, Jaci Alvey drove in six runs on three hits while Melissa Turpin also had three hits with five RBIs. Mylie Burns had three RBIs with Athena Tongaonevai and Bo Hoff blasting home runs.

Bountiful improved to 5-2 this preseason.


Davis defeated Roy 17-3 March 12. The Darts turned a 5-3 lead after three innings into a blowout with 12 runs during the final two innings.

Sophomore Jewel Korth had two home runs, driving in seven runs to lead Davis while Katie Klauman (two RBIs), Rayleigh Starnes (two), Jada Chilton (one), Hadlee Isaacs (one), Sydney Marrelli (one) and Libby Miller (one) also brought in offense. Freshman Cambell Christensen was the winning pitcher on the mound, recording six strikeouts.

“We also had some great team defense,” said head coach Todd Street.

Games with Northridge and Cyprus were cancelled this week because of weather and field conditions.

The Darts are now 6-1 on the young season.


Viewmont’s scheduled game with Mountain Crest was cancelled because of weather. 

In the Vikings’ 22-run loss to Bountiful, sophomore Ricki Smith hit a three-run home run in the third inning while senior Kennedy Embrey added a solo shot. The homers accounted for all of Viewmont’s hits and runs in the loss.

The Vikings’ fell to 2-4 through six games this year.
