Here's a few of last week's top performances from high school sports.

• Football - James Elkins/Tani LeHauli, Granger: These running backs might owe their offensive linemen some dinner this week. Each had 14 carries in a 53-22 win over Murray, and they did a lot with them. The duo combined for 391 yards and five touchdowns. That's nearly a 14 yard-per-carry average, but the most important statistic is this: Granger is 2-0.

• Soccer - Sarah Beecher, Davis: The junior goalkeeper took over the net this year for the Darts, and hasn't disappointed. She got her first two clean sheets last week in wins against Bonneville and Bountiful. Beecher is steadily emerging as one of the leaders of a young core on Davis' team, and the Darts are looking dangerous.

• Volleyball - Bree Bailey, Lehi: The senior looked in great form at a new position against Brighton. At outside hitter, she knocked in 23 kills on the Bengals for a 3-0 sweep last week. With dominance like that, watch out for a Pioneers squad on the warpath after making it to the finals last year.
