Region 9 wins it all!!
They are tested every week and that is good for state tournament time.


I was just wondering how anxious Judge is to play Dixie

Enough is enough!

Let's see if the censors will take this version:

What is so bad about coming “south” for a state tournament. For DECADES, ALL schools from Southern Utah traveled "north" for EVERY state event. It wasn't until about 2000 that any state finals were held south of Provo. Imagine my surprise a few years ago when some "northern" parents complained about time off work, expenses for gas, hotel, food, AND the time it took to travel "down" here for a state competition. They said it would be better if their athletes could have slept in their own beds the night before the game/match/meet. I told them I understood it perfectly...we have done that as students and parents for year after year for over 50 years.

RE: PTGreg You must be remembering in 1970 when Dixie beat Judge in the state championship basketball game. Thanks for the memory.

Enuff z nuff, 2A used to regularly hold the state basketball tourney in Cedar. But, more importantly than anything I would have to argue that the majority of teams are north of Nephi, therefore, you are the minority and majority rules. Maybe a rotational system could be used for the amount of teams in your division vs. those up north. So about every 3rd year you could host. Or, much like all of those of us who look forward to coming south next month for baseball tourneys, you guys could come north with a good attitude and bring your skis and boards and have some real fun. You in?

Looks like your math is off. Spanish Fork (.85) has a higher winning % than Judge (.78). Go Dons!
