Missouri has massive numbers and private and public play together. About three
years ago the entire list of schools voted on separation and overwhelmingly
voted to stay together. Your general assertions about the country are just not
accurate. The hatred and vitriol from some in Utah towards private schools moves
toward irrational conclusions. You have legitimate frustrations but those who
just demand a private classification are both wasting their time and counter
productive for legitimate adjustments.
I have lived in other states. Most never even considered having private and
public schools compete. The biggest reason is the ability of the private schools
to offer scolarships to any student instate or interstate or even
internationally. The second is funding of sports and achedemics. In most states
the private schools have a program they are based upon, ie; Fine Arts, football,
Science, etc. Most offer several sports along with scholarship, to make the
students well rounded and more appealing to D1 schools. They have recruits that
are watching the public schools and do offer scholarships to those who are of
"lower income" if that child will improve the statis of the school.
(Sound familiar?) Yes, it is happening in Utah!
we dont agree.juan diego and judge memorial cannot be classified with 1a pivate
schools.But know I am with you on WA.
@2afan, There are plenty of private schools in Utah, at least enough for
their own classification.
Sorry, you all misunderstood what I was saying. Enterprise will finish first or
second in region 13. I very well know that South Sevier and Wasatch are the
class of 2A.
Sorry it's fool not full. My bad
Stop comparing apples to oranges. First other states have massive numbers of
private schools,I e Texas. Utah does not have the numbers. Second,what WA is
doing is not at all what other private schools do I e recruit specific players.
Third,public schools can get foreign exchange students but don't want to
full with it.
The very fact that Wasatch can not only recruit but totally create a team
internationally is proof that private schools and public schools should be in
totally different catagories. Almost every other state in the nation has two
totally different catagories for private schools and public schools. In most the
only time they compete is in a super state or all state competition. Utah is
ridiculous in this, either every school can recruit and it is a free for all or
the private schools go their own way!
The dairy and farm boys from S. Sevier will hoist the gold trophy. From what I
have seen, Enterprise is around the 6th to 8th best team in 2a.
@ Carver,Enterprise doesn't stand a chance against SS or Wasatch. If
they happen to end up on the opposite side of the bracket from those two then I
guess they could have a chance at 2nd, but not 1st. That being said, Wasatch,
along with all the other private schools, should play in their own
I really believe the News missed region 13. Enterprise will finish first or
second. This is a much improved team from the start of the year.
Who will hoist the gold trophy? How about the farm boys from SS!
WA is a crafted team
