Led by its girls tennis, football and girls soccer teams, Grantsville High enjoyed a stellar fall sports season in 2017.
On the tennis court, the Cowboys just missed a state title, finishing just behind Judge Memorial in Class 3A. Junior third singles player Maci Jackson won the second state title of her career, following up the doubles title she won as a sophomore.
The football team came within a point of advancing to the Class 3A state semifinals after finishing second in its region and earning the right to host a playoff game for the first time since 2003. The Cowboys’ future appears bright, with many young players set to return next season.
The girls soccer team advanced to the state quarterfinals and posted a school-record 10 wins, led by freshman phenom Whitney Wangsgard, who led the state in goals.
Two-sport star Sabrina Allen won the Region 13 girls cross-country championship and finished third at the Class 3A state meet, while Porter Whitworth was third in the boys’ race.
On the volleyball court, the Cowboys advanced to the state tournament for the first time in several years, and were just a couple points away from advancing to the second day.
The Cowboys also enjoyed a solid season on the golf course. While Grantsville didn’t make it to the second day of the state tournament as a team, Brock May advanced as an individual and finished in a tie for 14th place.
