ACT Phobia?

Sweat flows down your forehead like a really bad sprinkler; you try to think but your brain is screaming louder than an overexcited Miley Cyrus fan. You just broke your third pencil frantically trying to bubble in those annoying circles. If you have felt some or all of these symptoms, then you have probably taken the ACT.

“We come out on the field. We come ready to play, and we all huddle up in the middle in the end zone. Alright! I go in the middle, and I say, ‘Let me hear my line!’ (yelling) ‘Let me hear my line!’ (yelling) ‘Let me hear that skill, man!’ (yelling) ‘I said let me hear that skill!’ (yelling) ‘Let me hear my eagles in the team scream!’ (screaming) ‘1-2-3 EAGLES!’ And that’s how we do it Maple Mountain.” -James Warren, Defensive Lineman

“Love is nothing in tennis, but in life it is everything.”-Anonymous

Maple Mountain Senior, Ashley Lewis, definitely has a love for tennis. She recently competed in a tennis tournament in Saint George, Utah. Twenty teams from around Utah were competing including last year’s state champions, Bountiful. Ashley and her partner, Sarah Vorkink, won their match against Bountiful, which was an amazing accomplishment! The girls won several matches and the entire MMHS girl’s varsity team took 3rd overall.
