hey Valley won with coaches from Escalante High School that is recent graduates of Escalante High School. Proves it is all in fun - after the corn is planted - and then something to talk and woof about. Good kids one and all. Hold a war and they all wear the same uniform.. just a bunch of good country kids giving it their all. Really a great way to end the winter... Track just around the corner, then fall then....

Nice job Valley! You guys are awesome, Coach Shake you are a stud. Keep up the good work and make those kids work hard!

Hats off to all the teams of 1-A. As small schools, we all know that when we have it, we have it and when we don't, we don't. Right now, Escalante has it and I congratulate them for thier hard work and dedication to the sport and thier good sportsmanship. Escalante meets Duchesne tomorrow for the championship and I want our boys to know that our town is extremely proud of them and no matter the outcome tomorrow, they are and will always be our champions. As small schools, we will all have our turn to shine. Escalante has waited a long time to be where they are, and we all know that sooner or later, another team will step up and the torch will be passed. as for right now, Escalante is the reigning champs and hopefully they will be able to make it a 3 out of 4 year run. Good luck tommorrow to the Escalante team and congratulations to all the teams and thier cheerleaders for all thier hard work and thier examples to those coming up behind them. "Let's go Moquis"
