Tooele High’s fall sports season was filled with plenty of successes, even if it didn’t always show on the scoreboard.
Among the highlights were the performance by the up-and-coming girls tennis team, as first singles player Pia Lorbeer and the first doubles team of McKenna Baker and Kammy Hamilton advanced to the state tournament. The volleyball team battled its way to a 6-6 record in a difficult Region 11 and made it to the state tournament as well.
Bridger Holmes tied for 17th place at the Class 4A state golf tournament, missing out on a top-10 finish by a single stroke.
The Buffaloes also found themselves in contention for the Region 11 football championship this year and advanced to the postseason in their first year in Class 4A.
On the soccer pitch, Tooele’s girls soccer team may not have advanced to the postseason, but was a nuisance to every team it faced. The Buffs twice came within a goal of eventual state runner-up Bonneville.
The cross-country team also showed continued improvement. Makayla Komer, Jessica Glaser and James Miles represented the Buffs at the state cross-country meet and all ran well.
