The clock was counting down. 5 minutes, 4 minutes, 3, 2, 1. Our lead was narrow, potentially falling apart at any moment. Alta was putting up a defiant competition and our team was barely holding on. Then it happened. Time seemed to pause as the ball passed between the hands of our players, and then we scored, sealing our victory. Cheers went throughout the stands and sidelines as both the students and the team realized what this meant. We were moving on; we would be in the semifinals. We had beaten our rivals, Springville, the previous week and now had beat Alta.
his year our Football Team tied Wasatch for 1st in our region. Our varsity boys had a great season with a record of 7-2. We interviewed a few of our Senior players; Derek Blanthorn, Brooks Maughan, and Ben Crockett, and asked them about their season and what went well.
