On September 28, Maple Mountain volleyball faced Springville in the first round of the region tournament. Unfortunately, the Red Devils were victorious over our Lady Golden Eagles, however, our team played very well.
Last Tuesday at Maple Mountain High School our Golden Eagles not only hosted the Region VIII Cross Country Meet, but took home both the Boys and Girls Region Titles for the second year in a row. This back-to-back championship team worked harder than any other school to achieve this season-long goal.
“What impressed me most was how the individuals were able to rally together and lift the team as a whole,” said Coach Darrell Wyatt. “It was a wonderful team effort top to bottom.”
The Maple Mountain football team stormed onto the field on Friday, October 8, and picked up their first official high school football victory with a big win of 33-7 over Uintah. The team was lifted by Tyson Jex who finished 7-for-15 passes with 115 yards and two touchdowns. Riley Flinders and KJ Hall each had a touchdown to boost the Golden Eagles. Cameron Carson had 16 carries and 101 yards. Golden Eagle defense also brought the team to triumph with Colby Jeffers, who had 11 tackles, and CJ Hildebrand, who had 8 tackles and 3 sacks. Extra points were contributed by kicker Jayci Peay.

In an intense and extremely close game between Maple Mountain and Springville, the Lady Golden Eagles came close to defeating our rival Red Devils. With the Red Devils’ team consisting of mostly seniors while the Golden Eagles was mostly juniors, Maple Mountain proved themselves to be just as good. The first two games were won by Springville the next two games were taken by Maple Mountain; and, then it was a hard fight for the last game with the ending score at 11:15.
