Grantsville High: 2019 3A State Softball Champs

The Grantsville softball team won its third consecutive Class 3A state championship on Saturday, defeating Manti 12-2 in five innings in the championship game in Spanish Fork.

However, the Cowboys’ run through the state tournament was far from easy. Manti beat Grantsville 7-6 in a quarterfinal game Friday evening, forcing the Cowboys to win five consecutive win-or-go-home games in less than 24 hours in order to win the title. GHS responded by beating Union 2-1 in extra innings Friday night, then came back Saturday morning to beat Grand 7-1 and North Sanpete 6-2 to advance to the championship round. Needing to beat Manti twice to win the championship, the Cowboys routed the Templars 11-1 in five innings to force a second game.

Grantsville is the 11th school to win three consecutive state softball championships. The Cowboys also won a state championship in 1998, making them one of nine schools with at least that many titles.
