Golf

Sun, 01/28/2018 - 1:52pm
Attributions: By Mrs. Parker

Several of our students here at Spanish Fork Jr. High including Sam Jex, Michael Wyss, Mick Barber, Boston Bradford, and Dexter Bradford all had the opportunity to participate on the high school golf team this year.

 The season began about a month before school even started and finished in early October. The team practiced every day. There were 12 kids on the team.  Every week the qualifiers determined who would play varsity and who would play JV in the upcoming match or tournament.

 About his experience playing on the high school team Sam Jex said, “The high school team this year was AWESOME!  We had an awesome team full of awesome kids.  We all knew that in order to be a good team, we had to work hard.  We also have the best golf coach in the state.  Coach Rogers is one of a kind.  I don't think any of us could imagine how our team would be without him.  And he's got good taste in music.”

 Sam has been playing for about 2 ½ years now. He also plays in the off-season, practicing as much as possible, including using a golf simulator in his friend’s garage during the winter. His goal next year is to shoot in the 70s all year. By his senior year, he hopes to win a state championship, get a scholarship, and be the best player in the state. 

 Congratulations to all these young men for this fantastic accomplishment.

One Team, One Dream

Sun, 01/28/2018 - 1:51pm

The SFHS Girls Soccer Team roster this year included several girls from Spanish Fork Jr. High including Tracee Jones, Kayla Clark, Lily Ricks, Lavinia Naulu, Emma Runolfsen, Bayleigh Redd, Lindsey Blake, Sydney Berger, Maddie Haugen, and Brinley Maughan.

 “My girls have been just magnificent all season,” said head coach Shane Ferrin. “They’ve fought hard; they’ve come together as a team and done some neat things.” (Herald Extra)

 Maddie Haugen was a little afraid to try out as a freshman “because I was not sure if they would like me, but the other girls were extremely nice and always helped everyone to get better. It was as if there were no age gap at all between us because of how well we would treat each other. I think this helped us to get far and improve a lot as well as become widely recognized and supported. It is so much fun.”

 Lindsey Blake said, “I played with some amazing girls over the season and was taught by some of the best coaches in the state. I feel very fortunate to represent Spanish Fork Soccer. As a soccer team at Spanish Fork High School, we made the goal to be united with one another. Our motto this year was ‘One Team, One Dream.’ It surprises me how this goal stuck throughout the season. We really did follow our dream as a team, and you can see that by looking at our success throughout the season.”

 Lindsey’s advice? “My advice to any soccer players who are debating on whether to try out or not is to at least try. Trying can take you to new heights you never thought you could reach before.”

 Fans can check out the SFHS Soccer Facebook page.

Lady Lobos Dominate Lady Diamondbacks with Strong Second Half

Fri, 01/12/2018 - 2:33pm
Attributions: By Shea Harmer with Rillene Nielsen

The SFJHS Girls Basketball team took on rival Diamond Fork Jr. last week in a heated competition. 

The game started slowly with the Lady Lobos scoring in the single digits during the first quarter.  Diamond Fork was a persistent competitor, shadowing the Lobos point for point, never far behind. 

However, after halftime, the Ladies came out with a vengeance, ready to play.  They were easily able to defeat Diamond Fork’s press getting easy breakaway baskets and multiple second shot points.  They were not about to let the Diamond Backs win on their home court. 

According to Coach Shea Harmer, “Spanish Fork finally put the things they had been working on in practice, into place and almost like magic; they were able to get a large lead on DFJHS.” 

In the end, our Lady Lobos won by close to 20 points.  Macie Clark was our leading scorer. 

Come support your Lady Lobos as they finish out the second half of their season.

Book Buddies!

Mrs. Thacker’s FACS Exploration A classes were busy making Book Buddies this week.  Every Book Buddy is unique because each student creates their own pattern and design concept. It’s fun to see just how much personality can be created by fabric scraps, a few buttons, and some thread.  A Book Buddy is a small stuffed toy that is made for first graders.  It's designed to be small enough to easily fit in the first graders’ desks.  First graders can read out loud to their Book Buddies to improve their reading fluency.  Book buddies are a collaborative effort.  Now that the students in FACS Exploration A are done creating the Book Buddies, the National Jr. Honor's Society will name them and create a small story about them.  While National Jr. Honor Society is busy writing stories, second-semester FACS Exploration A and Apparel Design and Production 1 classes will start working on creating more Book Buddies.   All of the Book Buddies that are created this year will be delivered to area first graders next year. If you want to make a Book Buddy, make sure to sign up for FACS Exploration A (7th or 8th grade) or Apparel Design and Production 1 (9th grade).
