Heading in the 2022 season, Riverton and Bingham are tied atop the Region 3 preseason coaches rankings, just as they finished tied in the standings a year ago.

Herriman, meanwhile, looks to bounce back after a tough year last year and Mountain Ridge continues to improve off of strong start as a new school.

West Jordan and Copper Hills wrap up what expects to be one of the deepest regions in the state.

The Silverwolves, who are striving for their first outright region title in school history, are coming off a campaign that saw them beat Bingham in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2002 and 2003.

Despite the feat, the Silverwolves let a couple games slide away, including a disappointing loss to West Jordan.

“2021 is 2021, this is 2022,” Riverton head coach Jody Morgan said.

“For the guys that played last year, we saw how fun it was to really be in it. If we can keep in mind what made us successful last year and also learn from it, this team will be committed to the grind.”

The same schedule awaits the team, including four preseason games that feature Syracuse (who enters the season as a top 10 team in 6A), Pleasant Grove, Springville and a trip to Dixie.
