On Friday, February 5, select Improv Club members and teachers faced off in an epic battle of wit and fast thinking. The audience cheered on their favorite team to victory.  Sadly, the students were not given the pleasure of knowing they beat their teachers. The teachers won!  Everything that could have happened, happened. People died, batman fought Kylo Ren, and there was even a romantic moment between members of the winning team.   It truly was a night of hysterical laughing.

Red Devil Swimmers, bringing home the medals

The Springville High Swim team no doubt has fun in the water, but they also know how to work hard and bring home the medals.  On January 29 and 30 the Red Devil swim team competed in Vernal at the Region VIII Swim Competition.  This year SHS swim team numbers are not as large as past years, but the girls’ team still managed to place second and the boys brought home a respected third place when all the points were tallied. 

Coach Amyee Hargett said, “The key to a first place finish is having swimmers that are able to participate competitively in all the events offered.  By having swimmers in all the events and receiving points from top five finishes, you become a winning team.” 

She anticipates with the Aquatics Center being built in Springville, the high school swim team will increase in size which will definitely give the team a competitive edge.  

Team Captain, Halle Acor, said, “The high school swim team’s success is measured by more than just medals.  The team has definitely learned hard work, dedication and teamwork.  We have many first-time competitive swimmers that joined our team this year.  They have been so impressive. We have all truly become great friends.”

Swimmers at Region were also awarded for their academic accomplishments. Seniors Jacob Lancaster, Devin Chamberlain and Halle Acor received Swimming Academic All-Region awards.

On February 12 and 13 qualified high school swimmers from across the state will compete at Brigham Young University in the Utah High School Athletic Association State Competition.  Each swimmer must be ranked 24th or above in the State in their event to qualify to compete.  Each swimmer may swim two individual events and participate in two team relays.  The top five finishers in the individual events and the top three in the relays will stand on the podium and receive medals as 4A State Champions.

Red Devil Wrestling -- Taking Down the Competition

If you are looking for a place to get fit, the SHS Wrestling team is the place to be. Springville has almost a dozen people on our team and we can always use more.

Gunther Snodgrass is one of the Seniors on Springville’s Wrestling team.  He is a heavyweight wrestler; his favorite match was at the American Fork Rumble.  During Snodgrass’ match he almost knocked out his opponent.  His “special move” is a head throw.  His favorite moment of any match is when the center judge lifts your hand in victory.  He hopes to wrestle after high school, but isn’t sure if he will.

“It’s a great sport that keeps you in shape,” said Snodgrass.

The other Seniors on the team include Justin Crookston, Sean McQueen, and Ammon Christensen.

Adam Dockstader is the only Junior on the team.  His weight class is 132, and his favorite match so far has been one in Provo in which he pinned his opponent in 13 seconds.  His “special move” is the hip toss. He plans on wrestling after high school if there is a scholarship opportunity. 

“You will succeed in wrestling if you work hard and you are mentally and physically tough,” said Dockstader.

Dallin Giatras’ favorite match was the Uintah match.

Giatras said, “I got a good ‘reshot’ with a special move in which you step in between your opponent’s legs and drive over.”

His favorite part about being on the wrestling team is simply being with the team.  It’s a fun sport and a great experience says Giatras.  Sophomore wrestlers include:  Jessica Rojas, Enrique Quezada, Carson Davis, and Dallin Giatras.

Come and support the Springville High Red Devil Wrestling Team at State on Thursday, February 11, at Utah Valley University.
