MMHS Ellevés Take 3rd at State.
Shalee Hiskey and Jamie Topham are named All-State Dance Team.
Shalee named Academic All-State Team.

On Friday, February 1, 2013, the MMHS Ellevés competed in the State 4A Drill Team Competition held at UVU. The Ellevés placed 2nd in the military category, 3rd in the dance category, and 5th in the kick category. Overall, Maple Mountain placed 3rd. There were fifteen 4A schools competing.

Shalee Hiskey, daughter of Bruce and Lana Hiskey was named to the Academic All-State Team. Each 4A school could nominate seniors on their team with a GPA of 3.75 or higher. Only ten seniors are named to this team. The combined average of this year’s 4A Academic All-State Team was 3.987.

Two Ellevés were also named to the 4A All-State Dance Team—Shalee Hiskey, daughter of Bruce and Lana Hiskey; and Jamie Topham, daughter of Greg and Michelle Topham. 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. The All-State
team performed the audition routine and was given certificates and medals. 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!
