It was a successful season for the Tooele Valley’s three high school girls basketball teams, highlighted by Grantsville’s history-making run to the Class 3A state championship game.
The Cowboys equaled their highest finish in school history by bringing home the second-place trophy, with their only loss to a fellow 3A team coming in the title game against undefeated Emery. Meanwhile, Stansbury finished second in Region 11, earning the right to host a first-round state tournament game in Class 4A. That home-court advantage paid off for the Stallions in a victory over Logan, earning them a berth in the state quarterfinals, where they were beaten by eventual state champion Cedar. Tooele also had a strong season, finishing with a winning record and earning third place in the region standings. That sent the Buffaloes into the state tournament, where they lost a tough first-round matchup to Green Canyon on the road.
All three teams have young talent slated to return in 2019-20, making for a bright future for girls basketball in Tooele County.
