Hudson Roney has been selected as a Maple Mountain student athlete "Prep of the Week" for his outstanding play as a member of the boys tennis team. Hudson and his younger brother Harrison recently won the 1st doubles region championship. At the state tournament the Roney brothers advanced to the 2nd round with their excellent efforts. Hudson is an outstanding student in the classroom with a 3.95 grade point average while taking a demanding class load. Hudson's plans after graduation are to attend Brigham Young University and then serve an LDS mission.
The MMHS Boys Tennis Team won the Championship Title at the St. George Invitational held March 27-28. The Golden Eagles won the title last year, too, but never in the 5 years going to the tournament has the team finished with four 1st place results and one 2nd place in an overwhelming victory. After defeating three teams the first day, Varsity 1st singles Andrew Blonquist lead the team by beating Dixie 9-7 in a tough battle and went on to beat Spanish Fork in straight sets. 2nd Singles Eric Whiting beat Spanish Fork easily and went on to a rematch victory against Orem 7-6,6-1.

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.
