Congratulations to the Davis Darts, who advanced to the quarterfinals by winning twice last week and also picked up the school's 550th victory in the process. The Darts, in their 97th year, are just three wins away from catching West, the all-time victory leader, but which has played 119 seasons.

Kudos also to Lone Peak's Tony McGeary, who now has 50 victories and who also gained two wins last week – one by Timpview's regular-season forfeit and the other over Brighton in the first round.

Juan Diego's John Colosimo hopes to guide the Soaring Eagle to the semifinals and earn his 175th career victory, including 46 at Judge Memorial.
