Athletes at Lehi High School accepted the challenge and competed well in 2023-24, the school’s first year in Class 6A with the assignment to tough Region 3 on top of that.

The Pioneers showed particularly well in the marquee boys sports, sharing the league title and winning the state championship in basketball, earning the gold trophy in baseball and finishing in the Final Four in football.

The girls swim team finished third at the state meet, and Lehi finished second in the region in football, girls basketball, softball and baseball. In addition, the Pioneers earned numerous individual medals in sports where those are awarded.
