Grantsville High wrapped up its 2016-17 school year with an exclamation point when the Cowboys won the state softball championship on Saturday — the second state title in program history and first since 1998.
It was the perfect cap to a stellar spring for the Cowboys, as senior Gavin Eyre also brought home a state title in the javelin from the state track and field meet.
The boys tennis team finished third in region and had a strong showing at the state tournament, led by freshman Porter Whitworth’s semifinal appearance.
The baseball team also finished third in region, but came on strong at the end of the season and very nearly pulled off an upset at the state tournament.
The girls golf team didn’t advance to the state tournament, but showed signs of improvement throughout the season. So, too, did the boys soccer team, which just missed out on postseason play but should be a threat in the revamped Class 3A come next spring.
