When Snow Canyon was forced to forfeit four region victories for using an ineligible player, Snow Canyon suddenly became a state-title contender on the verge of missing the playoffs. Incredibly though, the Warriors qualified for the playoffs by winning a Region 9 play-in game, and then they carried that momentum all the way to the 3A state championship. There was a brief hiccup when Juan Diego beat Snow Canyon 2-0 to force a second championship game, but the Warriors turned right around to avenge that loss with a 5-1 win.

3A Girls Track

State Champion: Ogden

Runner-up: Bear River

Heading into the 3A meet, Ogden coach Don Hall wondered if his team's dominance in the distance events would be good enough to pace the Tigers to the title. In the end, it wasn't even close as Ogden won with a 23-point cushion over Bear River for its first title since 2009. Sarah Feeny and Jamie Stokes went 1-2 in the 1,600, and then flip-flopped their 1-2 finish in the 3,200. Avery Calton won the 800, with Feeny and Stokes close behind in second and third.

4A Girls Track

State Champion: Orem

Runner-up: Mountain Crest

Orem only had one first-place finish (4x100 relay) at the 4A state track meet, but depth in numerous other events turned out to be good enough as it edged Mountain Crest 75-62 in the team standings.

Runner-up: Richfield

Behind Jacob Francis' wins in the 1,600 and 3,200 meters, Kevin Ballard's victory in the discus and some strong second-place finishes along the way, Grand was able to hold off Richfield for its second straight state championship with a 10-point win.

3A Boys Track

State Champion: Pine View

Runner-up: Desert Hills

The 3A state title was up for grabs heading into the state tournament with Pine View and Wasatch virtually neck and neck. That all changed when Wasatch star Cale Strong went down with a hamstring injury on the last of his three qualifying races. That opened the door for Pine View to run away with the title. The Panthers were led by a dominant meet from Jake Arslanian (pictured), who won the 100 and 400 meters and finished second in the 200 and long jump. Pine View's only other individual champ was Austin Micklson in the shot put.

4A Softball

State Champion: Roy

Runner-up: Salem Hills

Roy claimed its third state title in the past four years by knocking off Salem Hills in this year's 4A championship. Roy went into the state tournament with an impressive 19-6 record, but it lost to Box Elder in both region games and the Region 5 runner-up was regarded as a mild state title contender. It won its first three state tourney games by one run apiece, and then beat Murray 9-6 in the semifinals and Salem Hills 5-2 in the championship. It was the lone state title for Roy this school year.

5A Boys Soccer

State Champion: Davis

Runner-up: Brighton

When Davis lost two of its last four Region 1 games, including a 5-0 thrashing at home to Weber, it just didn't look like the Darts had the necessary championship moxie. That all changed in the 5A state tournament despite a brutal draw. Despite being arguably a slight underdog in all four games, Davis beat Alta, Lone Peak, Copper Hills and Brighton on its way to claiming the 5A championship, including the 1-0 title-clinching victory over Brighton at Rio Tinto Stadium.

4A Baseball

State Champion: Skyline

Runner-up: Timpanogos

Down to its last strike, it looked as if Skyline's quest to claim its first baseball state championship in school history just wasn't meant to be. The Region 7 champs came into the final day of the season knowing it had two chances to beat Timpanogos to clinch the coveted 4A championship. After Timpanogos thrashed Skyline 12-1 in the first game, Timpanogos built a 7-6 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh inning in the second game. Skyline's Josh Stephens, however, singled in the tying run to send the game into extra innings. Finally, in the bottom of the 10th inning Skyline scored the title-clinching run.
