Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 09/30/2010 - 10:00
The Spanish Fork Dons won their fourth consecutive region golf meet last week. This time it was at Hobble Creek golf course that they had their success. Elliot Naulu led his team with a 77. Bryce Whitaker followed that with 78. Dave Madsen shot 80 and Brennin Orr shot 83. Kelby McMullin of Springville had the best score of the day, 76. The win gives the Dons a comfortable cushion in the overall region standings with just two matches remaining. They lead Salem Hills, Uintah, and Maple Mountain, respectively. The individual race is a bit tighter.

Spanish Fork High School Added a New Addition

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 09/24/2010 - 11:58

Spanish Fork High School has added a wonderful new addition to make our school look great. On the south end of the football fieldstands a seventy foot flag pole holding the flag of the United States. The flag measures the incredible height and width of thirty by fifty feet. Our principal, Dave Mckee, had the awesome idea to have a flag big enough for all of Spanish Fork to see. Doug Snell, the athletic director at Spanish Fork High, put in many hours and hard work to get it together. A flag and flag pole that big is not an inexpensive project.

Spanish Fork’s Patriotic Opening for Homecoming Game

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 09/24/2010 - 11:32
Many people don’t know the real meaning of the Star-Spangled Banner or where it came from. It was originally brought on by the War of 1812 during the heated night of bombing. British Soldiers had captured Francis Scott Key aboard a truce ship. While he was waiting for the signal of our American flag, meaning we had won the battle and were that much closer to winning the war, he wrote a poem to the tune of a British Sailor melody. For Spanish Fork’s exciting Homecoming Game, Randi Miller had the wonderful opportunity of singing our beautiful country’s patriotic song.

Ashi-Baba Returns to SFHS!

On September, 13th, 2010, Spanish Fork High School held Ashi-Baba try outs. The first idea that comes to mind when we say try outs for this is what is Ashi-Baba? And where does it come from? It goes back to when a local restaurant owner visited a Spanish Fork High School assembly in 1972 and yelled “Ashi-Baba” and got the crowd yelling back, “Hey, Hey” just in an attempt to get people to feel pumped and get involved.

Students at Spanish Fork High School represented the school well at this year’s Utah State Fair. Spanish Fork FFA especially has a lot to be proud of: Grand Champions, class winners, well ran booths and activities, as well as good projects in general. Spanish Fork really looked good, and it’s all thanks to the hard work of students at Spanish Fork High School. The livestock portion of the fair alone looked awesome in the eyes of those rooting for Spanish Fork. Kayden Worthington’s swine project looked great.

Beginning The Game With A Bang

Friday,  September 17 was Spanish Fork’s Homecoming game against Uintah. The stands were filled with students and fans.  The game ball was delivered in a very unique way.  Ryli Sutch was dressed as the Don mascot, geared up with boots, spandex, mustache and all.  He used his very own horse and loped onto the field embracing the game ball.  The reaction was huge; the crowd went wild, and it started the game out exciting and loud. He handed the ball to the referee and the game began.

Homecoming Assembly at SFHS IS Rock Solid

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 09/17/2010 - 16:28
Friday, September 17, 2010, Spanish Fork High School once again had its big Homecoming Assembly. Alumni from the class of 1991 came to the high school to help pump up the spirit for the game against Uintah. The Alumni helped Spanish Fork High School students experience what it was like to be in the high school in 1991. Old football clips and technology demonstrated how much life has changed in 20 years. The quarterback from 1991 can still throw a great pass shown by passing a football to Hayden Nelson, the current quarterback. Chan Staheli was introduced as the Ashi-Baba for 2010-2011.
