Farmington High girls basketball coach Van Price sits at 488 career wins, with 474 of them coming at Layton High and 14 coming last year in Farmington’s first year.

Price is 12 wins behind former, longtime Ogden coach Phil Russell (500) for the most in Utah girls basketball history. There’s a decent chance Farmington ups its win total in 2019-20.

Shooting guard Valerie Kunzler, the team’s best shooter, averaged 10.7 points per game last year and more than two 3-pointers per contest.
