Pahranagat Valley lost 11 seniors off last year’s team, which won its second straight Class 1A state football title, but hopes its young team grows up quickly.
League play begins for Class 5A, 4A and 3A high school football teams this week, which means the playoff picture will come into focus in the next five weeks.
Pahranagat Valley and Spring Mountain have alternated the past four state championships, hope to remain at the top of the Class 1A football ranks.
Check out the top performances from Tuesday’s high school baseball and softball action and look forward to Wednesday’s schedule.
Kamry Bailey had 18 kills, 12 digs and three blocks, and the Eagles cruised past the Pirates. The Meadows (2A Southern) and Pahranagat (1A Region II) also won regionals.
Sparked by individual wins from Rome Odunze and Kyu Kelly, the Gaels wrapped up their second consecutive Class 4A title by scoring 99 points.
