Submitted by carey.white on Sun, 04/17/2016 - 21:13

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.

Track Meet was held on Saturday, April 16.

Much Ado Aboot Nothing, eh? is a recreation of a William Shakespeare play, which is set in Messina, Canada.  The story begins with everyone visiting Leonato’s cabin, with Hero and Claudio falling in love at first sight.  The villain Dawn John attempts to thwart Hero’s and Claudio’s love which nearly succeeds.  At the same time Don Pedro is attempting to make Benedick and Beatrice fall in love.  Dawn John makes it seem like Hero has been unfaithful in order to thwart the wedding.
