On Friday, February 6, 2015, the MMHS Ellevés competed in the State 4A Drill Team Competition held at UVU. The Ellevés placed 2nd in the military category, 2nd in the kick category, and 4th in the dance category. Overall, Maple Mountain placed 2nd. There were seventeen 4A schools competing. This is the second year in a row that the 
MMHS Ellevés have taken 2nd overall at state.

Two Ellevés were also named to the 4A All-State Dance Team—Brandi Gessel, daughter of Greg and Shannon Gessel and Jourdyn Reid, daughter of Dallas and Kristina Reid. Each 4A team sent three girls to learn a routine that they auditioned in front of judges, and then 20 girls were selected as the 4A All-State Dance Team. At state, each member of the All-State Team performed a self-choreographed 8 count routine and was given certificates. 

The Ellevés would like to thank all of the students, parents, administration, and fans who came to state. We really appreciate all of your support this year!
