The semi-finals game was a hard fought battle for the Lady Lobos who took on the Springville Lady Knights. The Lobos offense got off to a slow start; they struggled to get into a rhythm the entire first half. Springville, however, came to play. They were very aggressive and scrappy. The Lady Lobos ended up going into half time down by 2 points.
The second half proved that SF had made the adjustments necessary to pull themselves ahead. A few collisions and injuries did occur. Callie Johnson was knocked into a Springville player and got wacked in the eye. She ended up needing stitches after the game.
The Lady Lobos worked tirelessly and fought a hard battle all the way to end, winning by just 2 points!
But that was enough to get them into the championship game against Mapleton. The game is today at Springville HS. Come support your SFJH Lobos as they look for the back to back championship victories.

CHAMPIONSHIP GAME IS AT 5PM ON FEB. 6TH WITH THE BOYS' GAME IMMEDIATELY AFTER, BOTH AT SPRINGVILLE HIGH SCHOOL.

This week is White Ribbon Week to teach students about internet and media safety. On Monday, students participated in a "Net Smartz" assembly, where they learned strategies for how to stay safe on the internet and manage how much time they spend with technology. They watched a video from Kid President that reminded them how ordinary people can do extraordinary things by being a smart digital citizen.

Students will participate in activities every day this week to focus on different points of internet and media safety.

It's Showtime

Payson High School News - Tue, 02/06/2018 - 10:22am

Payson High School has always been known for their incredible student section and for always being involved in every sporting event, but there is one sport that tops just about all of them when it comes to attendance. A sport that gives a different meaning to entertainment, a sport that can go from 0-60 in a blink of an eye, and a sport that causes it’s fans to make the whole building quake. If you haven’t guessed it yet, then obviously you have never been to a single one of these games. I’m talking about the next generation of showtime basketball. The one and the only Payson City League Basketball (or better known as Junior Jazz).

The thing that separates Junior Jazz from every other sport is that everyone can be involved. It doesn’t matter whether you are a player or a fan, what makes Junior jazz the way it is is the people that are involved. Another thing that makes Junior Jazz stand out is the fact that there are no tryouts to be part of a team. In fact, you can make your own team. Just pay 12 separate purchases of $30 or depending on how many people will be on your team and divide split the difference of the $360. Junior Jazz can also cause both the players and the fans to get very heated towards one another. Most people say it is the referees that cause all of the controversy, but what we must all remember is that the refs aren’t perfect and in the end, it's just a game.

 

So far the season has brought a ton of talent and has created an atmosphere that is both creative and entertaining. In fact, the Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving once stated that “Basketball isn’t a game, it’s an art from.” Most of us can agree that is definitely what basketball is, but in the end it’s just a game that brings us together to help us become better people, better sportsman, and to become as one. I know this season will be great and can’t wait to see what this season has in store for these upcoming weeks.

The Huddle

Payson High School News - Tue, 02/06/2018 - 10:20am
Attributions: Article by Sabryne Kelly

It's common for a sports team to gather together and huddle  before the start of a tournament or a game. What is the reason for this huddle? The huddle is known to boost morale and for teammates to give each other “good luck,” but, sometimes it's more of a tradition. For example, a famous cheer for the cheerleaders is during their performance at halftime games, they gather into a group and yell, “AIN'T NO PARTY LIKE A PAYSON PARTY, CAUSE A PAYSON PARTY DON’T STOP! ROAR!”

For some sports the huddle doesn't matter, but for others such as football, the Huddle is critical. The Huddle is usually when the coach or team captain takes time to go over some strategies or to get the team pumped up. In football, for instance, the huddle is a time to get the endorphins going and for the team captain to boost morale, talk strategy and get the team thinking about each player as a whole instead of individually. The same is said about Soccer, it’s mostly to calm the nerves before the game and to say a quick prayer for safety.

Sometimes the experience is more spiritual. In cross country a prayer is often said and an embrace is given. Basketball is a combination of both, a prayer is said but there is also strategy talk. Drill and Dance Company are very similar in the fact that it gets serious and a prayer is said. You might think that the Huddle doesn’t involve the cheering crowd, but, it does. When the football or basketball team wins the students in the crowd join together in the middle of the field/court in a yelling, jumping, sometimes scary, Huddle of victory. This Huddle brings the students together to celebrate the win and maybe just rub it in the other teams faces just a little bit.

What does the Huddle mean? The truth is that the Huddle means something different to every single player. It’s a time to focus and put your attention on the game and not personal issues. The Huddle can mean everything and nothing, it all depends on how the players make it. So Payson, what does the Huddle mean to you?

We are Still the Mighty Lions

In the January Edition of The Lions Roar Newspaper we have decided to recreate old time black and white photos that are around the halls at PHS. Most of you have probably noticed the photos of different sport teams, clubs, and activities from our past that line the halls. These photos are packed with 100 years of history. Uniforms, outfits, and styles have definitely changed, but it is undeniable that our school spirit hasn’t.

School spirit is something that never goes out of fashion. As we have gained more school spirit, we have been able to give support to the teams that have needed it the most. We have empowered them to become better to reach greater heights. Not only have we grown, and changed as a school, but as a town. Over the years, we have grown closer while becoming something greater than before. While things undoubtedly changed, one thing hasn’t: we are still the Mighty Lions.

Landmark is a family. Families support and are there for each other. This became even more evident this last year when our attendance secretary Michell Osborn became ill. Doctors had a difficult time determining the cause of her illness, it took months! Eventually she was diagnosed with Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Lymphoma.  Her story has helped three other people get a proper diagnosis. We have missed her dearly; as she's been out since the end of last school year. Faculty and staff all showed their support and were able raise over $1000 to help with expenses.
