Taylorsville • Skyline was flying high, cruising along with hardly any competition in Region 6.
The Eagles had won 11 straight games against in-state opponents then Feb. 10 rolled around. Skyline was hit firmly in the mouth by Judge Memorial in what emerged as a nine-point loss in the second-to-last game of the regular season.
It was unexpected to say the least. Skyline defeated the Bulldogs by 16 less than a month before the setback, but as it turned out, it reinvigorated the Eagles roster. When the two clubs met again in the Class 4A girls' basketball championship at Salt Lake Community College on Saturday, the Eagles weren't about to let history repeat itself.
