Defending Region Champs
This week, Regions 1 and 4 in Class 5A, along with all the 4A and 3AA regions, join 1A and 2A in league competition. Class 3A starts region play next week and Regions 2 and 3 won’t see league games until Week 6.
This season, several teams try to extend their string of consecutive region championships. Juan Diego has won 10 straight while Hurricane and San Juan have claimed five in a row. Lone Peak is a four-time defending region champ.
Duchesne, Manti, Maple Mountain, Olympus and Stansbury have captured back-to-back region titles.
Historically, only Millard (12 straight from 1949-60) and Dixie (11 straight from 1966-76) have longer streaks than Juan Diego.
