The 2017 Lady Red Devil Girls Golf team is currently in third place in the region close to Wasatch, trailing by only a few points, with Uintah taking the lead.

The girls are optimistic about this season and hope to at least place second in the region and perform well at state.

Our beloved 10th grade English teacher and golf coach, Mr. Brett Miller, will be leaving Springville High School at the end of this school year to pursue new opportunities teaching English in China.

Miller has been more than just an English teacher for our school, he has also been the boys and girls golf coach for the past 11 years. The move to China will not end his career as a golf coach. Miller plans on furthering the Chinese students “American experience” by hopefully establishing a golf team at the school.

Miller plans on staying in China for at least a year, their family will most likely stay there for two or more years. Miller says he would not be opposed to returning to SHS after he finishes teaching in China.

Thank you Mr. Miller for all you have done for Springville High Boys and Girls Golf.

On Thursday, April 20, Haden Penrod and Anela Christensen signed national letters of intent to continue their running careers at the collegiate level.

Christensen signed with Dixie State University and will be joining their cross country program this Fall.  

Penrod signed with Brigham Young University for mid-distance running and will be joining the team after he returns from a two year LDS mission.  Penrod joins one of the best recruiting classes in the nation that currently consists of multiple elite distance runners, throwers, and sprinters.  Penrod is the second track athlete in the class of 2017 from Springville High to join the BYU Cougars. 

Julie Sumsion signed her letter of intent earlier in the school year and will be running both cross country and track at BYU starting next Fall.

Springville High students recently participated in the annual Utah High School Film Festival at SLCC.  Winning videos are linked below:

1st Place - Music Video: Spencer Johnson, Brendon Tolley
1st place - Documentary: Steven Bartholomew
2nd Place - Demo Reel: Steven Bartholomew
3rd Place - Comedy: Bela Romano, Dylan Carter, Steven Bartholomew, Brent Williams
Honorable Mention - Documentary: Steven Bartholomew
Honorable Mention - 6 Second Comedy: Steven Bartholomew
Honorable Mention - 48 Hour Shootout: Steven Bartholomew

It's probably not surprising to see Steven Bartholomew's name so often as he is constantly filming and creating; however, there are so many other people that aren't listed that have participated in and helped out with every production every student makes.  I'm biased, but we have a solid film/broadcasting program here at SHS; and, I'm proud to work with so many talented and dedicated students. Thanks for allowing them to film, even when it might be inconvenient, as it allows them to communicate ideas, opinions, and feelings they may not otherwise share as well as connect with each other. 

Here's the link to the playlist with of this year's entries.
