Maple Mountain boys soccer team played tough in their first region game on March 30, coming out with a loss of 2-1 against Salem Hills High.  Maple Mountain came out strong, but could not overcome the Skyhawk’s skills.  What was thought by most to be a shut out for Salem, Maple Mountain’s new team held them off, scored the first goal, and had possession of the ball for most of the game.  The game ended with a loss due to a debateable penalty kick, however, the boys competed with class and heart.

Golden Eagle musicians go on to state

Maple Mountain music students have prepared for the better part of the school year for their individual and small ensemble performances at the Region 8 Solo and Ensemble Festival, sponsored by the Utah High School Activities Association.  For the most part, students worked independently on this project, anywhere from selecting their repertoire, to practicing in and outside of class time in order to deliver superior performances.

This week’s Maple Mountain High School Prep of the Week is #21, Riley Flinders, centerfielder for the Golden Eagles baseball team. He is a key asset to the team, as he showed in Mesquite by going 8 for 14 in the tournament.  He had a game tying triple with the bases loaded in the 7thinning to tie the game at 3, which catapulted Maple Mountain into the championship game.   Riley’s expectations for the team are to make it to the state tournament.  Riley is a great baseball player and he more than deserves the MMHS Prep of the Week honors.
