Congratulations to quiz bowl team “Flaming Toothbrushes” including students Zach Foster, Melody Anderson, Mark Payne, Cory Clay (and alternate team member Kaiden Exon) who cleaned their opponents plaque, “M3M3, aka Meme Machine” with a “flossingly” brilliant score of 110-75.  Meme Machine team consisted of Ben Creer, Grant Gardner, Luke Gleave, and Joel Emmett (and alternate team member Taren Stewart).

It was a fast-paced final 20 minutes; both teams showed their knowledge prowess as they sparred back and forth until the very end, making it an exciting quiz bowl final round.

After the final student round, the winning teacher team, the “Chocolaty Claire's and the French Pastries,” including Mr. Justin Snell, Mrs. Claire Taylor, Mr. Brad Northcutt, and Mr. Darwin Deming (and alternate Mr. Jacob Douglas) took on the Flaming Toothbrushes and won with a sudden death sports question answered correctly by Coach Snell. 

A big thanks goes to Mrs. Lanell Rabner for moderating the event, Jill Thackeray for the bracketing, recruiting of teams, and running the buzzer system, Lisa Simmons and Leslie Christensen with administrative responsibilities, Mr. Christian Cragun and Mr. Trent Mikesell for their humorous MC commentary, Mr. Braden Boss for the audio visual presentation, and, of course, our fabulous judges including Ms. Marie Condie, Mr. Wes Morgan, Mr. Darwin Deming, and Mr. Mike Johnson.

It was a very fun and exciting week!

Nike Cross Nationals; Brandon Garnica claims All American

Nike Cross Nationals is a very unique event and one we have been lucky to participate in the past two years. In order to get to Nationals, you need to qualify to be in the Championship race at Nike Regionals - this means you have to be in the top 25 teams in your region (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada). From there if you place top 2 in the Championship race as a team you automatically qualify to go to Nationals. If you place 3rd or 4th, your team name is put in a bid holding area until all the other races from the other regions are completed across the country. From there the Nike Committee will select the 4 next best teams from the bidding pool and they will receive an "at large bid" meaning that they are invited to go to Nationals. That is what happened to our boys last year.

Fortunately, this year we took 2nd at Regionals so we automatically qualified. There are 22 teams that go to Nationals that are the best of the best in the entire nation. Out of those 22 teams, our team finished 5th (ten places better than last year). Brandon Garnica led our team by finishing 20th place making him an All American. We had three more boys finish in the top 52 places. The boys ran well, especially on an extremely challenging course, made even more difficult with all the rain and mud. It was a great capstone on an incredible season and a testament of what a dream, hard work, and dedication can do.

Foot Locker Cross Country Regional Championships is a race held at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, California. This race is called the West Regional Cross Country race. It includes runners from Utah, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, Alaska, Arizona, New Mexico, and Wyoming. We had ten students compete from Springville High: Olivia Penrod, AnnaBeth Templeman, Carter Paxton, Kaitlyn Gee, Avery Baldwin, Ella Park, TJ Roberts, Nathan Martin, Grace Ashcraft, and Bekki Grigg. This race is known for the difficult terrain the runners have to compete in, specifically including the many steep hills. We would like to congratulate each of these runners for their accomplishment in this race.

Close Up in Washington, DC

Each year students from Springville High have an opportunity to visit Washington D.C. and Colonial Williamsburg, with other schools from across the country, as part of the Close Up Foundation. Students work for up to nine months to pay for this once in a lifetime experience. Interacting with students from Texas, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Illinois, New Orleans, California and most years Puerto Rico, provide an experience that cannot be duplicated in any classroom.

This year’s group was able to visit the National Mall and experience the Lincoln Memorial, World War II Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Washington Monument, Martin Luther King Memorial, FDR Memorial, and Jefferson Memorial. On the first full day there we visited Mount Vernon, home to General George Washington, as well as Arlington National Cemetery and witnessed the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, both favorites of many students. A visit mid-week with Civil Rights Activist Joan Trumpauer Mulholland and U.S. Congressman Rob Bishop, from Utah's 1st District, at the Capitol Building were also favorites of many students. Colonial Williamsburg, followed by A Christmas Carol at historic Ford's Theater are an amazing experience each year. On our final day in the Nation’s Capital, we visit the Holocaust Museum and Martin Weiss, a survivor of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. It is hard to say what the best part of the week was, it was different for each student and teacher who attended. If you want to know more about the trip stop by and visit Mr. Lister in room C-21​​​ or visit Close Up’s website at: https://www.closeup.org/program/high-school
