OREM RIDES CONSISTENCY TO 5A SPORTS PINNACLE

SHARE OREM RIDES CONSISTENCY TO 5A SPORTS PINNACLE

Orem High only captured one state title, but consistency throughout its athletic program has given the school the first-ever awarded Class 5A all-sports trophy.

The Deseret News has been awarding the all-sports trophies for 15 years to the top high school athletic programs in four classes and this year added the 5A award after the high schools were realigned.Besides Orem, the view was good for a couple of first-time winners, Sky View in 4A, and Pine View in 3A. Beaver and Enterprise also won for the first time taking the 2A and 1A all-sports trophies in two of the closest races ever as Beaver edged Morgan by one point and Enterprise won by two points over Rowland Hall-St. Marks.

Points are awarded in 10 boys sports and eight girls sports sanctioned by the Utah High School Activities Association. Ten points are awarded for first place, eight for second, six for third, on down to one for eighth place.

Orem's teams finished second in football, girls cross country and swimming, made the semifinals in the boys soccer and baseball tournaments, finished third in girls volleyball and fourth in boys cross country and track.

Bingham, which won the 4A trophy in 1992, finished in second place thanks to two state titles in girls basketball and softball and a strong boys program that place in the top-8 in all but one sport. Last year's big-school winner, Mountain View came in third, while Highland with one of its best years ever, came in fourth.

Previously Orem won all-sports honors twice in the mid-1980s when it was a 3A school. However the other four winners are all first-time winners.

Sky View's year didn't get off to a very good start when the school's football season was canceled just prior to the state playoffs because of a hazing incident that gained national noteriety.

But the Smithfield school didn't lose its spirit. The Bobcats came up with surprise state titles in boys basketball and soccer and second-place finishes in golf and girls basketball. The girls also garnered a third-place finish in volleyball and fourths in girls cross country and boys swimming and wrestling. Timpview, which has won six all-sports titles, finished second and Judge Memorial, a two-time winner, came in third.

Pine View came up with one of the highest point totals ever in the history of the all-sports awards with 101.5, just short of the 104 points Timpview earned in 1987.

Just in its sixth year of existence, the St. George school produced top-eight finishes in all 10 boys sports and seven of eight girls sports. The Panthers won state titles in golf, girls soccer and track and had three runner-up finishes - in boys tennis and girls basketball and softball. Cedar City also had a strong year with four state titles and wasn't far behind Pine View with 92.5 points.

For years Beaver has had one of the strongest boys programs in Class 2A. But a lack of success by the girls has kept them from ever winning an all-sports trophy.

This year, the girls came up with 24 big points with a first in basketball, a second in track and a third in cross country. Coupled with the boys 36.5 total, which included titles in track and cross country, the Beavers edged out Morgan by the slimmest of margins. San Juan was only another four points back.

In 1A, Enterprise picked up its first all-sports award with the two-point margin over Rowland Hall-St. Marks. It makes up for two years ago when Enterprise was edged by North Summit by just two points.

The Enterprise boys took first in basketball and baseball, while the girls took second in volleyball and basketball. Dugway had the most points on the boys side, but with a weak girls output, the school finished third overall.
