ULA TOLUTAU, East, football: This senior running back led 4A's top-ranked team to another decisive victory last week as it capped the regular season with a 10-0 record.
Tolutau carried the ball 12 times for 303 yards and four touchdowns — which covered 40, 59, 65 and 92 yards — in a 51-14 victory over Kearns.
So far this season Tolutau has rushed for 1,813 yards and 26 touchdowns on just 128 carries.
A year ago Tolutau rushed for 1,332 yards and 11 TDs.
Tolutau has verbally committed to the University of Wisconsin, and he's been ranked by Rivals.com as the 10th best recruit in the 2014 graduating class.
DANELLE PARADY, Riverton, volleyball: When the Silverwolves need something — anything — they turn to senior outside hitter Danelle Parady. The four year starter is as skilled as she is resourceful and that's helped the Riverton volleyball team to a winning season.
"She's pretty much our go-to kid," said Riverton head volleyball coach Lindsay Lind. "She's a four year starter and we always know we can rely on her to get big kills when we need a point. … She's a 6-foot kid who can dig balls like (a libero). She jumps really well, and she has a crazy, wicked top-spin on her jump serve."
In her senior season, the BYU-commit has also helped the team emotionally.
"This year, especially, she's stepped into a leadership role," the coach said. ""She's always been so (talented), the other players have looked to her. But this year she's kind of embraced it."
