2017 Tooele High School Spring Sports

The spring sports season is nearing its end, and Tooele High has had a lot of success, led by the unified soccer team’s second consecutive Division 1 state championship.

The Buffaloes’ softball team earned a second-place finish in Region 10 and will open state tournament play this weekend. The boys soccer team made the state tournament for the first time in a decade and picked up its first postseason win since 2003 by beating North Sanpete in the first round.

The tennis team is sending the doubles pairing of Terran Dunn and Jayden Petersen to the state tournament this weekend in Salt Lake City, while the track and field team and girls golf team are preparing to take part in their state competitions next week.

The baseball team missed out on postseason play, but showed vast improvement throughout the season and should be a threat in years to come.
