I have a suggestion for the UHSAA. Play the game at Dixie State College.
Instead of having students and parents driving nearly 600 miles round trip, put
the game in a stadium right in their own backyard. It is silly for both schools
and all those people to waste money and risk injury and death to travel to Salt
Lake. Let common sense apply. Plus, I would bet the crowd would be absolutely
eagle,Absolutely great idea! So great, in fact, that since 2005 it's
been done at least twice: Pineview vs. Dixie in 2005 and Desert Hills vs. Cedar
in 2011. Yes, huge crowds.
@eagle They actually did that a couple years ago for the Cedar-Desert Hills
Semifinals (2011). Hopefully they do the same this time around! I agree, I
think the southern Utah fans would love it!
I just hope they do it. I remember when they made the two St. George schools
drive all the way up. They played in a huge snowstorm and it really ruined the
quality of the game. However, what concerned me most was that people
undoubtedly were going to drive home, especially teens, in horrible conditions.
I hate to see people driving, and money being used for buses, when two teams
have a perfectly good stadium minutes from their school. Let's hope the
UHSAA goes back to what they did in the past vs. the last time they made these
St. George schools venture to Salt Lake for their championship game.
I have heard that uhsaa pays the U to have there games there or the other way
around I'm not sure. If that's true than that's what holds then
back. I don't know if they would have to pay a cancellation fee or if they
just don't want to lose money. But so true. They wil make more money and
have a safer and better turn out if it's in st george
I wonder if these two schools can just tell the UHSAA they are playing it down
in Dixie, and they need to figure it out. Not a good situation for the fans or
teams to drive all the way to SLC, rather silly
The 1987 3A State Championship between Mountain Crest and Sky View was played at
Romney Stadium at USU. UHSAA works with schools and communities. I always
believe it is about the boys - I believe they do too.
