          Many of you may know our favorite foreign exchange student Tuan Nguyen.  His most quoted phrase since he has been here is “What are you guys doing now?”  He is very curious to all of our doings as he observes us and sometimes shakes his head at our American stupidity. He was a key part of our cross-country team this year, aiding us with a greater understanding of other countries, customs, and cultures.  He is straight from Hanoi, Vietnam. He loves it here in the United States, even when he thinks that the things we do are a bit strange to him. He is also very patient in class when he is almost at the teacher's level in intelligence. If you want to learn more about Tuan, check out his Facebook and twitter page.

      On Tuesday, November 6, our high school swim team had their first competitive meet of the season. They traveled to Ogden to go against North Summit and Ogden High School, who hosted the three-way meet.   

      Our swimmers came out on top, with the boys taking first overall and the girls taking second.  The boys made an exceptionally strong showing in the relays, winning the 200 freestyle relay, the 200 medley relay, and the 400 freestyle relay.

      Just a few of our star swimmers who helped bring a win home include Chet Oxborrow, Tanner Henderson, Landon Graff, Colton Christensen, McCall Magleby, and Tasheena Dowley. 

      Landon Graff had this to say, “I was impressed with how well we did as a team in general; for many of us it was the first time swimming in a meet.”

      Fans, coaches and athletes were all pleased with the outcome.

      Melissa Hartley is in her 10th year as the SFHS varsity swim coach.
