It was a windy meet, but the athletes were able to perform at their best. We had Chris Ohman who jumped 6'1" which was a personal record in the high jump this year and he qualified for state. Sean Stapel was also able to have a personal record in his high jump performance.

The girls 4x100 team took first and the boys 4x100 team took 2nd. Ceci Sumsion had a personal record throw in the Javelin. Overall, it was a good meet for Springville and there is a lot more we expect to see this season.

FFA and Student Council members dramatized serious scenarios including Prom night, a teen crash including a fatality, and even a mock funeral.  The purpose was to increase awareness among our student body of the importance of driving safe to prevent injuries and fatalities. 

FFA and Student Council members created many posters which portrayed the statistics of driving unsafe.  During the assembly walk-through, which was conducted in the underground track, students were asked to write their name and pledge to “Not Drive Stupid.”   Assembly was held on Tuesday, April 12.
