BOUNTIFUL С The latest realignment meeting by the Utah High School Activities Association will result in a lot of movement from schools to different classes and regions.
However, two local high schools could benefit from it. Initial plans have rivals Davis and Viewmont back together in 5A’s Region 1.
Davis and Viewmont, which were in Region 1 together for many years, but were split apart after the last realignment placed the Vikings in Region 2. They have been there since the fall of 2011.
Since then, the Vikings have taken advantage of the move by claiming numerous region titles, while placing highly in state competitions during the past year-plus of competition.
In 2011 the Vikings С in the same region as Kearns, Taylorsville, Hunter, West and Granger high schools С claimed a region title in football, girls’ soccer, boys’ basketball, softball, boys’ soccer, and a number of other sports.
The girls’ soccer team went undefeated in Region 2 for the second consecutive season this year, and finished the 5A tournament as state champions.
Davis has had its own run of success in that time as well, claiming a volleyball crown in 2011 and a semi-final appearance this year. The baseball team also won a region title along with girls’ soccer, boys’ soccer, and other sports.
The rivalry, however, was the biggest thing missing for most fans in the Viewmont and Davis cheering communities, a fact that has been stated several times by coaches since the two team’s separated regions.
