    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!

    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.

    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 classification.

    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.
