Valley boys take second at State
The Valley Buffalo boys basketball team had an awesome season! They went into the state tournament ranked #2. They played some hard fought games in the 1A tourney, beating Intermountain Christian School 70-39, Wayne 43-38, and Rich 71-65. This put them into the championship game, but they fell short against Panguitch, 63-39.
Coach Owen Hoyt had this to say, “I’m very proud of our team and the way they fought all season long. Our boys showed amazing heart day in and day out, facing teams with much more size than we had. Their dedication to practice paid off for them as we had one of the best shooting teams in the state. It was a privilege to coach this team.”
The Valley boys unofficially set the state three-point shooting record with 248 for the season!
