PHS Sports Sidelines

I didn’t get any information about the baseball teams’ games at the Merit Academy Tournament, but I hear that they had a great game against Bryce Valley (BV). They won 1-0 against their best pitcher and had a good game against Piute, the champions for the last two years. The Cats have a really good record, with only two losses and a lot of wins. The Cats will finish off August with a game down in Valley on the 30th, and they go out to Green River on Sept. 1. Next week, they have two home games—one on the 6th against Wayne, and one on the 8th against Pinnacle.

The Lady Cats volleyball team had a tough four days playing eight games. They had a good game against Valley—the freshmen and JV won in three games. Against the Varsity team, the Cats won the first game easily, but the Buffalos caught the Cats napping and took the second game. The Cats rebounded in the third and fourth games and took them by large scores. The big disappointment was when Beaver came to town. I expected a 2A team would be a lot better than they were. The Cats took them out in all three games, without losing. During one of the games, one of the cheerleaders had a problem, and the Cats formed a fence around the girls to protect her.

The Cats went down to the Dixie Tournament and played six games against 3A and 4A teams and had a three and three split, with wins against Jordan, San Juan and Bryce Canyon and losses against Canyon View, Millard, and Kanab. The Cats get another chance against Millard and Kanab. This week on the 30th, Escalante will come to town. There will only be a JV and Varsity game on Wednesday the 30th. I hear the Moquis are undefeated so far, and it should be a good game. The next night, the Cats go up to play Millard, a team that they lost to at the Dixie Tournament. Next week on Sept. 6th, the Cats will play the BV Mustangs.

Cross country had their first dual meet in Bryce Valley on the 31st. Check for times.
