On Wednesday, February 3, 2021, the MMHS Ellevés competed in the State 5A Semi Finals Drill Team Competition held at UVU. A total of 18 drill teams from schools in the 5A division competed to be one of the top 8 teams that would advance to the finals. The Ellevés made the top 8 and were going on to compete in the finals.
On Thursday, February 4, 2021, the Ellevés competed in the finals and placed 6th in the military category, 6th in the dance category and 6th in the show category. Overall, Maple Mountain placed 6th.
MMHS's next test-to-play day is Monday, February 8th, starting at 2:00pm.
A couple things to be aware of as we test:
I need every participant to show up on time and to have completed the survey ahead of time. We are testing roughly 500 people in 2 hours, and if even a few people are behind or have to fill out the survey on the spot, it will throw our schedule off. Just to give you an idea of how this works - We are trying to test 50 participants every 15 minutes. If we are not a well-oiled machine, we will easily get behind.
