    Man.... Shutouts was the key word to Summit Academy's rare accomplishment in their inaugural season. And last night was far from a shut out wasn't it?

    Thanks for the response Mr. Felt. Love your weekly article. So much cool info for a sports dork like me.

    Obviously I made a mistake in my post. They lost in the semi's in 2004, not 2nd place.

    One thing I will mention...while Manti had a losing record in 2000, they still upset the #1 South Sevier team in the playoffs to move to the quarterfinals.

    Thanks again.

    MantiCoug, feel free to disagree, but in my analysis, I excluded any year that a team had a losing record, as Manti did in 2000. Thus the Templars' golden years were limited to 2001-05. And thanks for reading.

    I would've included 1999 to Manti's "glory years". They won it all (while going undefeated) in 1999. 1999-2005 should be considered Manti's glory years.

    1999 - State Champs
    2002 - 2nd place (lost to Juan Diego)
    2003 - State Champs (Beat Juan Diego)
    2004 - 2nd place (lost to Juan Diego in the semis on a last second play)
