Making first team all-state for girls soccer in both newspapers was GCHS senior Amanda Sheets, who led the Lady Devils in scoring with 16 goals on the season, giving her a school-record 55 in her four-year career. Teammate Madie Camps, also a senior, earned an honorable mention from the Deseret News.
In football, Grand saw several athletes make the Deseret News all-state team. Jacob Francis, Koi Cook, and Edgar Gomez, all juniors, all made the first team. Francis, a 5-foot-8, 145 pound quarterback and defensive back, finished the season with 1,753 yards in total offense. Cook, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound running back and defensive back, scored 12 touchdowns on offense and led the team with 118 defensive tackles. Gomez, a 6-foot-2, 245-pound lineman, had 61 tackles for the Red Devils this year. All three were among those recognized at a banquet held by the Deseret News at Jordan High School in Sandy on Dec. 10.
Also honored by the Deseret News was junior running back and linebacker Cameron Taylor, who made second team all-state. In addition, GCHS athletes receiving honorable mentions in football from the Deseret News were junior David Bentley, junior Austin Day, and senior Wesley Rodda.
The Salt Lake Tribune’s all-state football teams had not yet been announced as of Dec. 10, nor had the Deseret News’ all-state volleyball teams.
In volleyball, two Grand County High athletes were named to the Salt Lake Tribune’s second team: senior outside hitter Nikita Nelson and senior middle blocker Carly Dalton.
In boys golf, two athletes from Grand made first team all-state for the 2A classification: Hunter Butterfield and Dale Thomas, both of whom are seniors. The all-state golf teams were selected by the Utah Section PGA and submitted to the Deseret News for publication.
