Stansbury’s 2018 fall sports season was a successful one, highlighted by Josh Oblad’s third-place finish at the Class 4A state cross-country meet and the football team’s sixth region championship.
Oblad helped lead the Stallions to a fifth-place team finish at the state meet, one year after the team captured its first state title. The girls team finished eighth in Class 4A.
The Stallions’ volleyball team made history by placing at the Class 4A state tournament for the first time ever, finishing eighth. Their run at the state tournament included a victory over Juan Diego, giving them a bit of redemption after a tough late-season loss.
On the gridiron, the Stallions shared the Region 11 championship with Park City and earned a No. 1 seed for the Class 4A state playoffs. Stansbury won its first-round game, defeating Mountain View, but lost to Pine View in the quarterfinals.
Stansbury had a successful season on the tennis court as well, sending several players to the state tournament. The Stallions didn’t send anybody to the second day of the tournament, but continued to develop into one of the region’s top teams.
The girls soccer team narrowly missed a postseason berth after a challenging region schedule. However, the Stallions never gave up and gave themselves a chance to make the playoffs in the final week of the season.
The Stansbury boys golf team didn’t advance past the first day of the state tournament, but saw two players advance as individuals. Brady Kimberling finished tied for 22nd and Braydon Griffith tied for 48th.
