Submitted by tyler.lewis on Thu, 11/04/2021 - 13:33

Senior Kaitlin Dixon is our Girls Tennis team “Prep of the Week” award winner for this year. Kaitlin has been playing as the number 1 singles player winning most of her matches. Early in the year Kaitlin suffered a wrist injury that forced her to play in pain with her wrist heavily wrapped. Kaitlin fought through the pain to place high at the region tournament then advancing to the state tournament. Kaitlin is also an outstanding student in the classroom.

Congratulations Kaitlin on an outstanding career and season!

Submitted by tyler.lewis on Mon, 09/28/2020 - 07:36

This year the 2020 Maple Mountain tennis team is home to 9 seniors, one of the biggest groups the school has seen in several years. On Thursday, September 17, 2020 the team held a home match against Park city. During this match the seniors experienced their last region match and senior night. Each girl was recognized with her parents and presented with a bouquet of flowers, as well as a necklace. The night was filled with bittersweet tears, laughs, hugs, and victories. Alexis Call said that, “ [she is going to miss] actually playing the sport and working for it.”

Maple Mountain Senior, Ashley Lewis, definitely has a love for tennis. She recently competed in a tennis tournament in Saint George, Utah. Twenty teams from around Utah were competing including last year’s state champions, Bountiful. Ashley and her partner, Sarah Vorkink, won their match against Bountiful, which was an amazing accomplishment! The girls won several matches and the entire MMHS girl’s varsity team took 3rd overall.
