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.

After three days of grueling try-outs, the inaugural Maple Mountain High School boys soccer team had one day of practice before their first pre-season game against Orem High School which resulted in a 5-1 Orem win.  This is the first time this team has played together.   The Golden Eagles played a good possession game and came out with heads held high.   Maple Mountain played their second game two days later against American Leadership Academy resulting in a game tie giving the Golden Eagles hopefulness of future wins.
