Athletic Highlights from Spring 2017

Girls’ Soccer

The girls’ soccer team has advanced to the state championship as the #1 seed in the state. They won their first round with a 4-0 victory. The team has made 84 goals this season while only letting in 3 goals. They have had to use the mercy rule on multiple occasions to end games. The team is impressive across the board, with all the girls being dedicated players. If an opponent is not challenging enough, they will test their skills in a new position during the game. This allows for the goalies to rotate and have a chance to play on the field.

Boys’ Soccer

The boys’ soccer team played well in the state soccer tournament despite being eliminated during the first round. This hard-working team ended the season with a record of 8-2-4. Leading offensive player, Gabi Cheng scored an impressive 11 goals this season. On the defensive side of the field, Michael Leonoff had a shutout game against South Sevier.

Baseball

The baseball team ended the season with a record of 3 – 9. They did an excellent job building up a strong arsenal of pitchers and competent fielders. The most impressive win in the last few weeks was against Layton Christian. The Tigers had a no-hitter thanks to pitcher, Ethan Varga.

Track and Field

he track team performed quite well last weekend at the BYU invitational meet. Sheilah, Purity, Ashley, and Brayden all ran personal best times this weekend. In particular, Sheilah Cheruiyot broke three schools records over the course of two days: 3200 meters (12:02); 1600 meters (5:31); 800 meters (2:31). Saturday, May 13th is the Region meet at the University of Utah.

Girls’ Golf

The girls’ golf team enjoyed participating in the region golf competition. The team has learned many great new golf skills throughout the season.

Boys’ Tennis

Last week in Moab the South Division of Boys 2A Tennis saw soaring temperatures and excellent tennis. The doubles teams got in some fine moments at regionals. We are proud to report that your Wasatch Academy Tigers have three qualifiers for the State Championship tourney this coming Saturday, 5/13  at Liberty Park Tennis Center in Salt Lake City! Congratulations to Dheven Duenwald, Ben Garwood, and Michael Lin.
