Football

Cammon Cooper, Lehi (Sr.)

Had a game for the ages in Lehi’s 72-66 double-overtime win at Alta.

The senior quarterback passed for 599 yards and 10 touchdowns, including the game-winning TD to Dallin Holker to clinch the victory.

“It’s indescribable. It feels great to get the win,” said Cooper, who has verbally committed to Washington State.

Girls Soccer

Hallee Jones, Corner Canyon (Sr.)

Is off to a very strong start for Corner Canyon this season, scoring in all three games for the Chargers.

Last week she scored against both Herriman and Skyline, and also added three assists between the two games.

"Her work rate and leadership up top as forward have spearheaded a great start to our offense this season. As a senior this season she in confident, but also a great example to her teammates on the field. She wants the ball and is looking to lead our team,” said Corner Canyon coach Krissa Reinbold.

Volleyball

Aubri Whatcott, Syracuse (Sr.)

Syracuse’s senior setter got the season started off on the right foot last weekend at the Tournament of Champions at Skyline High School.

Whatcott recorded 14 aces, 95 assists and 25 digs over the two-day tournament to lead Syracuse to a first-place finish.

“Aubri had a good tournament this weekend. She ran a quick offense and made great decisions in distributing the ball. This was key to our success,” said Syracuse coach Corrie Vigil.

Girls Cross Country

Sadie Sargent, North Summit (Sr.)

The defending 2A cross country state champion is picking up right where she left off.

North Summit’s Sadie Sargent captured the prestigious Highland Invitational last weekend against a field of very strong runners from all classifications.

She finished with a time of 17:27.30, a full 10 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher.

Boys Cross Country

Aidan Troutner, Timpview (Sr.)

Had a great performance at the Highland Invitational at Sugarhouse Park to open the season last Friday.

The Timpview senior finished first against a very strong field as he crossed the finishing line in a time of 14:37.50, finishing 12 seconds ahead of the second-place runner.

Troutner finished third at last year’s 4A state cross country meet but won the 3,200 state title at the state track and field meet back in May.

Boys Golf

John Fox, Olympus (Jr.)

Got off to a scintillating start to the golf season last Wednesday at Murray Parkway in the first Region 6 match of the year.

Fox fired a 5-under 67 to edge teammate Zack Neff and Highland’s Oscar Maxfield by one stroke.

“John has been playing a lot of golf this summer getting ready for the season and came out strong in our first region match,” said Olympus coach Matt Barnes.

Last season Fox tied for fourth at the 4A state tournament with a two-day total of 151 at Soldier Hollow.

Girls Tennis

Mallory Neuberger, Wasatch (Sr.)

A doubles player the past couple years, Mallory Neuberger is making a name for herself in singles early this season for Wasatch.

Last week she won her third singles match against Park City 6-3, 6-3, and then against Davis she prevailed at second singles 6-4, 6-1.

As a sophomore two years ago her doubles team placed second at state.

“She is a senior leader on our team and an outstanding student as well,” said Wasatch coach Audrey Hull.

1A Baseball

Will LaLonde, West Ridge (Sr.)

It’s hard to top the season that West Ridge pitcher Will LaLonde has had already this season.

Earlier this season against Wendover he pitched a perfect game, and then on Friday he followed it up with 21 strikeouts in West Ridge’s seven-inning victory over Manila. LaLonde also had two home runs in that game, all while being extremely sick and throwing-up early in the day.

“I couldn’t ask for more out of this young man. He is a great leader and a great student as well,” said West Ridge coach Jamie Keefer.
