According to the SFJH girls basketball coach Shea Harmer, our Lady Lobos gave it their all and came away with a well-deserved win against Lakeridge yesterday.

“We started off a little nervous and had a hard time settling into our style of play. The first quarter was rough,” reports Coach Harmer.  “We finally calmed down and played our game rest of the time and that made a huge difference.”

 According to Harmer, defense was key and really helped shut Lakeridge down. Trinity Benson was a beast on the boards and worked hard to make sure their posts weren’t able to score much. When the Lady Lobos ran their plays, they got in a zone and Lakeridge couldn’t touch them.

Coach Harmer had nothing but praise for her team.  “Macie Clark sank a half-court shot in the 3rd quarter that totally brought the energy to the game,” she said. “Bailie Jensen’s intense yelling and Avery Critchfield’s hard work in the post area really made the difference in the game.”  The girls won it 38-24.

Go Lobos! The girls’ basketball team plays Diamond Fork tomorrow at 3:30 at Diamond Fork. Come on out and give them your support!

Miss McKendrick's class loved learning about the brain through some hands-on science. Using the book "The Growth Mindset Coach", the class got into groups and put together their very own brain using Play-Doh. After each part was completed on their play-doh brain, they would test each other on the roles of each part: Pre-Frontal Cortex, Cerebrum, Cerebellum, Amygdala, Hippocampus, and Brainstem. Did you know your Amygdala helps you feel emotion? These kids do!

Barnett Bulldogs honored local Veterans in their Veterans Day Assembly on November 10. The Barnett Choir sang a series of songs that honored the Veterans. The whole school joined in on a song for the grand finale. After the assembly, Veterans went to classrooms as part of "Take a Veteran to School". They told stories, showed artifacts from their time in the service, and answered questions from the students. This is one of the most special days of the whole school year where we were able to meet fathers and mother, grandparents, uncles and aunts who serve and served our country.  Thank you to the men and women in the military for everything you do. We love you.

The Spanish Fork Junior High 9th grade boys’ basketball team beat Lakeridge Jr. High Tuesday night by a score of 69-39. 

The boys got off to a slow start in the first half.  They struggled with turnovers and poor shot selection. 

The second half was a complete turnaround.  Our Lobos worked hard at getting great shots in their half-court offense and reducing the number of turnovers.  Their strategy paid off well for them as is evident by the final score. 

Good luck boys against Diamond Fork tomorrow.
