Realignment opened the door for a new 3A drill team state champion, and Canyon View made the most of the opportunity on Friday night at UVU.

The Falcons finished first in two of three categories at the 3A state championships as it edged North Sanpete for its first state championship since 2011 and just the second in school history.

North Sanpete was seeking its seventh state title in school history and first since 1996.

The Canyon View Talons finished first in Military and Dance and second in Show. North Sanpete finished first in Show, second in Dance and third in Military.

Juan Diego, Juab and Union rounded out the top five.

Tonight their dream became a reality and it was the cherry on top to an amazing season,” said Canyon View coach Nicole Mikkelson.
