Girls 4-Time State Champs, and Boys and impressive 2nd!

Wow!  What an amazing weekend by our athletes at State!   It came down to the end for the girls to pull off their 4th straight State title and the boys to bring home the 2nd place trophy.   The girls defended, and defeated Davis by 1.5 points in a meet that came down to the 4x400 relay at the end.  The boys pulled away from AF by winning the 4x400 relay to secure the 2nd place State trophy.  Everyone stepped up and pushed themselves beyond what they thought they could do.  What an amazing team effort by both teams!  Congrats to all who were involved!

April 18-23

Congrats to Brielle Carr for breaking the school record in Pole Vault and unofficially matching the State record. 

Good job by all those who helped with the meet and stuck around to watch the remaining events.  That is what it is all about!

We have a duel meet with Lone Peak at their place on Wednesday at 3:30pm.  Buses will be leaving at 1:45pm.  The Davis Invite is on Saturday and we will not know until Tuesday evening who has been accepted and in what events.  Buses are scheduled to leave for Davis at 7:00am.

This is crunch time in the season and if some of you still want to be part of this team you must be at practice.  We might be making some permanent cuts to some athletes who are regularly absent for whatever reasons.  Practice is NOT an optional thing!  Some of you might need to go back and look at the disclosure you signed on registermyathlete if you don't remember this.  Great job by those of you who are consistently doing what you are supposed to do, it will pay off.

Back up jerseys are in.
