Utah team fares well in Las Vegas
Several of the state's club teams participated in high school basketball tournaments in Las Vegas last week. One that stood out was led by members of West Jordan's boys basketball team. The team went 3-0 in pool play and won a tournament game before it lost in the quarterfinals of the 17-under boys platinum bracket in the Las Vegas Easter Classic.
Players on the team were West Jordan's Rayes Gallegos, Jordan Weirick, Mason Sawyer, Tyson Udy and Jonah Blanchfield, Granger's Ray Tapusoa, Delta's Jaren Jeffery and West's Chris Barnes.
"All things considered, I think they looked a little sharper than we did and that was obvious. But my guys dug deep and held on and made the right plays when we needed to ... Nil-nil? Good result." Sky View soccer coach Doyle Geddes, on his team earning a 0-0 double-overtime draw with top-ranked Bountiful on Tuesday.
