October Students of the Month

MMHS is proud to announce the October students of the month!

In five years, sophomore Brooke Davis sees herself as a professional singer. Her favorite subject in school is math because she likes learning new things.

Her favorite quote is, “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” She likes this quote because she likes to treat people the right way. A few things that makes Brooke different than everyone else is her singing, the way she dresses, and the way she learns.

This week's "Prep of the Week" is C.J. Hildebrand. In our homecoming football game against Mt. View, C.J. had a touchdown run, an interception, a fumble recovery, and 16 tackles from his linebacker position. C.J. is having a great season, and he is a big reason why the football team is 7-1 right now. Congratulations C.J. and good luck the rest of the year.

4A State Golf Champions

Congratulations to the boy's golf team for winning the first golf state championship for Maple Mountain. The second day of the tournament brought out the best of the MMHS team and individuals. The team beat Bonneville by 5 strokes to clinch the title, and sophomore Kai Ruiz finished second.

Friday, the student body was released early from second period to congratulate the golf team. The team rode in on Mapleton and Spansih Fork fire engines to be greeted by a cheering crowd. This is the second state championship the school has won since its opening four years ago.
