This year the Volleyball team had a green game where they raised awareness for mental health. They had a huge success! They played the Piute Thunderbirds and defeated them again!
The team did a great job and took 2nd in the Region tournament. Especially exciting was taking Panguitch to the 5th set in the championship game. The team did an amazing job. Next came the state tournament, where the buffalos defeated the Green River Pirates and moved on to face a tough Milford Tiger team. They lost in 5 sets. After that, they defeated Monument Valley, but then couldn’t get past the Tabiona Tigers. They ended up taking 7th at state. Great job girls!
