LOWER-SEED SUCCESS Next » 1 of 22 « Prev
Four of the 12 semifinalists entered the tournament as #3 seeds. That’s the highest number in a playoff not affected by teams that had to forfeit games during season. (Which was last year when East qualified as a #4 seed and Timpview as a #3.) However, this year, Lone Peak, in Region 4, and Olympus, in Region 7, were both region co-champs, but drew the third seed.

In the late 60's East played Olympus at their homecoming. There was a parade of floats and other high school bacchanalia strung around the track prior to the game. At some time during the first quarter a group of East high students walking past one of the floats set it on fire. I still laugh about it. After the game walking home with a couple of friends a car full of East students stopped, jumped out and wanted to rumble. The three of us together wanted nothing to do with this and took out through the "Smart" dairy farm, through the cows and back into the stadium. I've enjoyed watching East lose since then. Go Titans.
