I was forced to finish an abysmal formal education at Skyline High School. Skyline was deep in the Reign of Schmidt that year. Coach Ken Schmidt had taken the football team to the state championship the previous year and would do it again my final year ... as well as three more times. I only know this about Ken because we were inducted into the Skyline High School Hall of Fame on the same evening in 2004.

Instead of singing Taylor Swift lyrics in her head, she said a prayer, then drained the biggest free throws of her career – free throws that gave the Red Devils their second consecutive Class 4A state championship with a 42-40 victory against Skyline. “I knew I needed to make those free throws,” said Park,...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The Region 7 foes had played twice before and knew exactly what to expect — points would be at a premium and defense would dictate the result. Skyline built an early lead that held up the rest of the way, advancing with a 47-39 victory that left the Eagles equal parts elated and simply glad it was over. “Our defense kept us in the game the whole time,” Skyline senior forwa...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

They clanked off the rim, or the backboard, or sometimes didn’t touch anything at all. Skyline’s confidence mounted as the Bobcats’ frustration visibly grew. The swagger was back. That much was evident as the No. 3 seed Eagles used a run late in the first half to steal momentum and beat the second-seeded Bobcats, 56-47, in the first round of the Class 4A state tournament Monday. “When we started to get momentum, it seemed like they co...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Sydnee! Sydnee!” A large smile engulfed the face of Skyline senior guard Sydnee Taylor as the chant echoed down the halls, nearly 15 minutes after the Eagles stormed back to beat Timpview 51-50 on Wednesday evening. If you score the final four points to rally from 16 down in the second half and lead your team to a state quarterfinal victory, teammates, friends and fans are going to chant your name. “Our team’s crazy,” said Taylor, who scored 16 of her game-high 25 point...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
