pretty tough looking region 4

Sandy, UT

Alta must be getting promoted to the collegiate level.

Kaysville, UT

So is Alta in Region 3?

Kaysville, UT

Alta is left out. Are they in Region 3?

South Jordan, UT

I like the division of traditional power schools in regions 1, 3 and 4. Hate to see the Bingham, West Jordan rivalry diminished by being in different regions. Is it just me or does region 2 look a little soft?

Salt Lake City, UT

Obviously, they forgot to include Alta in Region 3, which is the only 5A with 5 teams, so Alta would make it 6. Highland should be able to dominate 3A or it will be embarrasing.

WOW why would they do that to the RAMS. oh well here comes a bunch of state championships for us

Go Highland beat springville on friday

wow bingham and lone peak in the same region... That's going to become a big rival between all sports. They will be fighting for region in everything. I'm sure bingham is happy. Lots more compitition then in the weak region 3. I can't believe spanish fork moved down... They are a 4A school all the way.

They are taking all three Orem schools and moving them to different regions.

This would be a complete joke.

Moodys, OK

The winner of this game should stay in 4A

Alta is in Region 3 with Brighton and Jordan. There was discussion about Alta and Jordan staying in Region 4 with the Utah County schools, but it was decided that Bingham and Riverton needed a turn traveling around the Point of the Mountain.

Good luck with that prediction. It seems to me Pineview just gave Highland everything they could handle, and they beat Highland last time. Hurricane beat PV pretty convincingly earlier. The new region 12 will dominate.

Region 2 looks a little weak? Other than that it looks pretty good across the board.

Tooele, UT

I really don't know why the Highland principal is throwing such a tissy. The only sport that Highland is good in is football and boys golf, besides that they are sub-par in the majority of their sports. Springville on the other hand is good in football, softball, both basketball teams and baseball so they have a better rounded sports program overall.

Looking forward to that huge Spanish Fork vs. North Sanpete baseball rivalry.

Midway, UT

Highland will not win a title in any sport 3A, 3A has beat a lot of top 4A schools and Highland isn't the best in 4A the ONLY sport they will win their region in is Football and that is touch and go with PC, and Wasatch. They don't have a chance in basketball, definetly not baseball,wrestling, and soccer. Girls sports I am not sure how they rank. Don't be embarrased when you don't win against 3A teams just be humbled like Springville was this year when Juan Diego beat them in football and when Wasatch beat them in Basketball last year. 3A is tough and will be a challenge for them especially if they have a chip on their shoulders when they go into the new alignment then you will be humbled for sure.

West Jordan, UT

Region 4 looks strong 1 and 3 look balance 2 looks pretty weak. You can never make everybody happy, but this has been one of the better ways to split the classifcations.
It will be weird seeing Skyline in a lower classifcation.
I hope Riverton Bingham and Herriman will keep playing each other for the next two years. That can becomme a fun 3 way rivalry.
WJ and Bingham not in the same region for the first time in 25 years was werid to see. I hope they can keep playing but making it happen will be hard.

Next 2 years should be fun to watch in all 4A,5A sports.

How many teams from each region qualify for play-offs in each sport?

Layton, UT

I hate to see LCA forced back to 1a and stir up issues that their voluntary move up to 2a had resolved.I hope the board will think this out instead of hiding behind a rigid fomula.

Really? Putting Orem, Mountain View, and Timpanogos in 3 different regions is the best they can come up with? Time for Alpine School District to realign the boundaries for the high schools in Orem so we have a decent amount of students at each school.
