Cole West, Roy (Sr.)

Cole West played a huge role last week in leading Roy to the outright Region 5 championship.

Offensively he caught five passes for 35 yards and two touchdowns and then defensively recorded four tackles and one interception as Roy rolled past Northridge for the 49-14 win to finish the regular season an 8-2 record.

“I’ve had the privilege to coach him in football for four years as well as basketball for two years. He is one of the hardest-working athletes to play at Roy High. He never complains, always respectful, and is always there for his teammates. He will be hard to replace, not only on the field, but in the locker room, film rooms, and the halls of Roy High,” said Roy coach Chris Solomona.

Roy’s coach said West played nearly every snap in the win against Northridge. For the season he’s recorded 28 tackles and five interceptions.


Camden Goodman, Park City (Sr.)

Park City wrapped up the regular season with a 21-8 overall region record and a perfect 12-0 record in region play, and a big reason why was the steady play of senior setter Camden Goodman.

“Camden is an outstanding student who runs the offense like a brilliant tactician, carefully setting up her hitters to slice through the opponent’s defense. She is the quintessential quiet professional. Through her performance and demeanor, she has established a reputation of excellence and sets a standard for others to follow,” said Park City coach Matt Carlson. “She puts in the work, never seeks recognition, and always puts others first. She is one of our captains and is such a selfless leader.”

Goodman has recorded 371 assists for Park City this season, while also adding 115 digs.

For her career she’s gone over 1,200 assists.

Girls Soccer

Caroline Hellewell, Bountiful (Sr.)

Bountiful is in the 5A soccer semifinals for the second straight year, and there’s no question that Caroline Hellewell has been one of the keys.

For the season she’s recorded 15 goals and 16 assists, which includes a goal and an assist in Bountiful’s quarterfinal playoff win over Springville last week. She’s recorded a goal or assist in 15 of 18 games this season.

“As a team captain, Coco’s leadership has been integral in driving this team forward as a cohesive unit. As a player, her stats speak for themselves,” said Bountiful coach Lou Plank.

Bountiful faces Brighton in the 5A semifinals at 3 p.m. at America First Field on Tuesday.

Boys Cross Country

Cole Jameson, Taylorsville (Jr.)

A year finish in 57th place at the 6A state cross country meet, Taylorsville junior Cole Jameson has made huge strides this year and figures to be one of the top contenders at the 5A state meet next week.

Jameson won his 5A Divisional A state-qualifying cross country meet last week at Lakeside Park finishing with a time of 16:06.3. His time was second only to the Divisional A winner, by just five seconds.

“Cole has worked extremely hard from the moment he came to Taylorsville and even before he got here. Some runners are fast on their own but Cole is one of those that makes everyone else around him better. He is a leader by example. He has high expectations for himself which tends to rub off on his teammates but does it in such a positive manner that helps others to succeed,” said Taylorsville coach Guy Mackay.

Jameson recently also won the Region 4 championships meet.

Girls Cross Country

Lucy Hawkins, Skyridge (So.)

Skyridge sophomore Lucy Hawkins made a big splash at the 6A Divisional B cross country meet last week at Lakeside Park in Orem.

Hawkins won the race with a time of 19:15.1, finishing 11 seconds faster than the runner-up from Riverton.

“What makes Lucy a great runner is that she follows training instructions precisely and pushes herself to improve constantly. She only started running two years ago, and after being injured her first cross country season I think she feels like she is making up for lost time,” said coach Isaac Hawkins.

The week prior, Hawkins finished third at the Region 3 championships, and next week at the state cross country meet on Tuesday she’ll be eyeing another top 10 finish.

Boys Golf

Lance Loughton, Morgan (Jr.)

Loughton shot under par in both of his rounds (67 and 71) to shoot a 6-under 138 to claim 3A medalist honors with a five-stroke cushion.

“He’s a golfer. He plays a lot, he plays a lot of tournament rounds and he knows what to do. I do not have to worry about him,” said Morgan coach Dennis Peterson.

He was at his best on the final back nine make three birdies on his final seven holes.

During the regular season, Loughton won the Region 13 title as he averaged 69.4 in his region matches.
