Way to go Valley Buffaloes. Defense wins and your D kept you in the game until you could finish off the Mustangs. Congratulations on a State Tourney win. Keep up the hard work, believe in yourselves and the program and you'll do great. Good job Coach Shakespear. You the man.

Huh?

That's hilarious! From the shortened headline on the 'latest updates' toolbar, I thought there had been an earthquake in the Philippines where a valley was shaking and jittering in the aftermath.

GOOD WORK VALLEY

scary but as long as you get the first one behind you your good, kind of like the piute game the first day of region

Manila

So if manila would have won, that would not have been an upset. Manila played worse offensively today than they have for awhile. Do not get me wrong, valley won and they deserved it. Good game and that is how things work out.

Go Clay!!

Go Clay stroke those 3's baby!!

manila is the best

i wish manila would have won they deserve it ther worked so hard this year and we wanted them to reclaim their title of 1A state champs we did well con sidering that we are the second smallest school in utah.

i wish our boys would of won. they worked really hard and hopefully it turns out better for them tomorrow. Nice job boys)

oh waa

every 1a school is small, don't use numbers as a crutch. all of the schools with too many kids are 2a, so get over it.

Take State Valley!!!!!

Way to go Valley!!!!! Keep up the good work!!!!

Not to take anything away from Valley, they are a great team and deserved the win. nice job...
However to "oh waa" we are all 1A, but I know a lot of schools are fudging to stay 1A. And it really does make a difference. When you are comparing a school with 90 kids to a school with 290, its tough.

RE: 1A student...Huh?

1A student...do you know how big Valley is? They are one of the smaller schools too. I know Manila is small, but most of the schools are except maybe Panguitch and a few others. Escalante is actually one of the smallest schools in the state so really that's not much of an excuse in 1A. Tabiona I know is also tiny and they have had some championship teams. When you live in small places it depends on what kind of kids you have in certain years, but also the work ethic of the kids and coaching comes into play a lot of times too.

YAY

Way to go Valley!! Yes it was kind of ugly but hey it is a win. Good luck tomorrow!

Piute and Escalante are the two smallest schools in 15, Escalante being the smallest and Piute a close second. Escalante only has like 70 boys total and I think that is 7th through 12th grade and Piute only has about 90 boys 7th through 12th. By the way ugly, but nice job valley. I hope region 15 takes 1,2,3, and 5 in the state tourny. Go region 15

Good Job

Great job, no problem you always need one game to get the rust off and they did it victorious so god job. Now they can just go out and play like they did in region with the same results.

Go Valley!!!

Right...

Valley is not just going to play like they did in region. Okay Whitehorse is not in R.15 these indians got a lot of tricks up their sleeves. I'm predicting a huge upset, I'm looking forward to writing an I-told-you-so remark.

Mustang FAN

well, to my manila boys down there in richfield, we love you up here!!! we miss you and you guys deserve a win over milford....dont give up and next year we will be champs once more. i know how hard you worked and you deserve the best in the world

I guess I made that sound like I was directing it at Valley, thats not what I meant. Valley is smaller I understand that. And they also played a great game against manila that I believe was fair. I was just speaking in general... Just comparing schools like Duchesne and Monticello with 300 kids 7th-12th to the smaller schools with less than 100.

old champ

fyi for escalante and piute having 70 and 90 boys 7-12. you have more boys in those grades then we have girls and boys total in those respective grades. But us manila people don't make excuses, we had a few good years and have enough talent coming up that we will be back and watch out

The Valley Super Senior

Honestly Valley is less than 200 students 7-12 grades depending on the year. There were 23 in the graduating class with me. So I have been able to watch these boys play only four games this year due to my college schedule, but they have won every game I attended. Valley has a great coach and alot of talent. The bench is deep, and coach uses who he needs when he needs them. They are not a tall team, but they are quick. Matt Hoyt has been starting four years on the Varisity now and he proves why at the end of each and every game. The thing is any of those boys can hoop up big points so you can't leave any of them open. They are quick, smart and on top of everything else they play together. Yesterday was rusty and that was yesterday, but today in today and both teams had better bring their game and prove themselves. I promise Valley will not overlook Whitehorse, but they will adjust their game to win. That is the goal and Valley knows how to make and keep its goal. Go Buffaloes...you rock boys! Take State!

Alumni

Congratulations to Valley for their win. I heard that both teams played well. I know that Manila has a lot of talent, they just need to play together, as a team. Their can't be any "super stars". Play hard tonight and work the ball as a team. You guys can do this! Good luck!!
