Our very own Maple Mountain Dance Company was one of three high school dance companies in the state of Utah that were invited to perform with the Snow College Dance Ensemble and Juilliard graduates in the annual “Dance 3 Concert.” This performance celebrates the three levels of dance education--high school, college, and professional dance.
Chantelle Johnson stepped in as proxy for Katherine Wilkins while Katherine was on choir tour and was the last to turn the key to win a new car from Ken Garff as part of the Keys to Success school program. In addition to other prizes given to students by Ken Garff, Chantelle won a new Apple iPad.
Students earn Key Cards by improving academically or setting goals with their teachers. With their Key Cards, they log on to KenGarff.com/Keys to pick from a wide variety of prizes.
Our newest prep of the week, Colby Jeffers, is an outstanding athlete. Playing football and now baseball, Jeffers has shown exceptional athleticism in his sports. Jeffers is excited about the sports he is a part of, and he is a great asset to the teams.
Jeffers said, "I love baseball."
He enjoys being a part of the team and enjoys the company of the other players. Jeffers enjoys the learning aspect of high school as well. He gets good grades and pays attention in school.

This week’s Maple Mountain High Prep of the Week is Calder Groberg. Groberg, a senior at MMHS, plays second singles for the Golden Eagles tennis team. Groberg went 3-1 in the Duel in the Desert tournament (March 11 and 12) and had the championship clinching win in three sets over Park City (4-6, 7-6, 6-3).
Groberg might be the most improved player on the team, coming from first JV singles junior year to second Varsity senior year, thanks to his hard work in the off-season.
The evening of March 12 was a very exciting time for 12 local contestants. These girls were competing for the title of Miss Springville/Mapleton. Contestants participated in four areas: Interview, talent, evening gown and swimsuit competitions. The 12 contestants had to have a platform for what they wanted to do to help the community. Seven of the contestants were from Maple Mountain high school; they are Alex Murillo, Abbey Eriksson, Chelsea Dean, Mackenzie Davis, Nicole Killian, Madison Memory and Carly Bastian.
The girl’s golf team has been chosen for the spring season with Justin Nelson as the head coach. This young team consists of juniors and sophomores. Sophomores are Paige Asay, Mackenzie Carlson, Brittany Erekson, Kecia Farley, Mickelle Hamilton, Ciara Moosman, Nicole Padgett, and Morgan Schramm. Juniors on the team are Bre Bate, Kara Betts, McKell James, Brandee Kammerman, and Wesli Peay. The team’s first region meet will be at 2 pm on March 21 at Spanish Oaks golf course.
