SSHS wins Class 2A

For the first time in school history, the South Summit athletic department owns the distinction of "All-Sports" champion for its consistent performances at Class 2A state finals.

"This is something we set early in the year as a goal," said SSHS athletic director Troy Coil. "We felt like we had a pretty good group of kids coming through, and a lot of the fringe players just kind of took from their example and rose to the occasion."

The Wildcats only won a single state championship – after a stunning last-minute rally from the boys’ basketball team – but runner-up results in football, boys’ and girls’ golf, wrestling, volleyball and softball allowed them to comfortably surpass San Juan, 71.5-62.

"It was really a school effort," Coil said. "We feel like we’re in a good spot in a lot of different sports."

Grand was third with 58.5, while Waterford (55) and Parowan (51) were fourth and fifth, respectively, despite a class-leading three state titles apiece.

Coil said South Summit is also proud to be well-rounded, with a high educational ranking on and strong clubs – such as the state’s top drama and FFA programs.
