Girls’ Varsity took third overall while the Boy’s Varsity took a respectable fifth place finish. A freshman, Rachel Warnick, was privileged to help bring her team to a third place finish.

Maple Mountain Band Plays at Homecoming Game Last Friday Evening.

The Salem Hills Skyhawks scored their first touchdown three minutes into the game last Friday evening, September 19. The same feat took the Maple Mountain Golden Eagles twice as long, landing their first, and only, touchdown at six minutes into the first quarter.

The touchdown for the Golden Eagles was scored by a pass from Jace Edmunds to Greg Waite; however, the extra point kick was not good.

Despite the effort made, the Skyhawks had the game by half time with a 32 point lead over Maple Mountain.
