Park City Volleyball goes 5-1 in Wasatch Festival tournament
The outcome of North Summit and South Summit’s annual matchup was unsurprising to fans of both teams as Braves endured a 50-0 beatdown from their cross-county rivals, the Wildcats, at home last Friday. Before Friday’s matchup, the Wildcats were 4-0 in Class 2A’s North region and 7-1 overall, having only lost to 4A Park City. The Braves were 0-8 overall, and 0-5 in Class 2A North. Every team the Wildcats had beaten, the Braves had lost to.
South Summit senior quarterback Kael Atkinson threw five touchdown passes. Senior McCall Rose and junior Jace Crystal hauled in two touchdown receptions apiece. Junior Cam Sargent logged the longest touchdown completion of the night, however, with a 70-yard catch and run to the endzone.
Dylan Yterralde and Hagen Miles scored the Wildcats’ rushing touchdowns – a two-yard and a five-yard run, respectively – while junior kicker Jake Whitmore racked up six extra points.
South Summit earned a bye during the first week of playoffs. The Wildcats will play the winner of Friday’s game between the South region’s No. 4 seeded Enterprise (5-5 overall, 4-3 in region) and the North’s No. 5 Gunnison Valley (1-8 overall, 1-4 in region) at home on Oct. 26.
North Summit will play Beaver (6-3, 3-2), South’s No. 3 seed, in Beaver on Saturday. Kickoff is at 6 p.m.
Park City competed in the Wasatch Festival volleyball tournament at Sky View High School in Lehi on Friday and Saturday, going 5-1.
The Miners defeated Hurricane 26-24, 25-20, Juab 25-12, 25-19 and Spanish Fork 25-22, 28-26 on Friday.
On Saturday, the Miners beat American Fork 25-17, 19-25, 15-12, then defeated Morgan 25-14, 25-22, and fell to Pleasant Grove 25-12, 25-18.
The Pleasant Grove Vikings, from 6A’s Region 4, are currently ranked as third in the state behind Bingham and Lone Peak, which are in the same region.
