The Mountain View girls are looking like one of the contenders in 3A Wyoming high school basketball this season.

Off to a 7-1 start this season, the Buffalos are on top of the highly competitive Class 3A Southwest Quadrant. Their lone loss this season is to Rich County, UT, by one point.

Mountain View is led by senior and returning all-conference selection Kylee Dellinger. She’s averaging 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game to pace the Buffalos. Her efforts included a 30-point, 12-rebound game against Farson-Eden.

Earlier this season, WyoPreps’ David Settle caught up with Dellinger to ask her about playing basketball this season, how different the offseason was, how she and her teammates prepared for it, plus what she’s learned about the squad early on, what they need to do to continue to improve, and some fun items, such as road trips, food, and opposing atmospheres.

The girls’ head coach at Mountain View is Jessica Moretti. She is in her fourth season as head coach. Her teams have qualified for the state tournament the last two seasons. Coach Moretti talked about the early portion of the season, what she’s learned about her team, how different it was getting ready for this season, and more.

The Buffalos open conference quadrant play on the road at Pinedale on Friday, and then back at home against Kemmerer on Saturday.

Mountain View, like the rest of 3A, is trying to chase down the top-ranked Douglas Bearcats. They have won the last two state titles that were played in 3A girls’ basketball in 2018 and 2019.
