Tuesday March 9, 2010 Salem Hills played their first game against Orem and kicked some serious butt. Their varsity team won 9-1 and their JV team won 2-1. Both teams played their hearts out and showed great sportsmanship, hard work, and determination. They all played amazingly.
Varsity pitcher Courtney Moody threw some wicked balls with 12 strike outs, a home run (in the park), and a double going 2/3 for the evening. Bridget Bradford went 2/4 with a double. Trisha Christensen did an awesome job catching and went 1/2 with a double. Hailey went 3/4 and scored twice. Kiley Williams had an unbelievable hit over the fence; home run! “I’m very pleased with our team’s first outing. We battled some bad weather and got our first home run!” Coach Clarke stated.
Taelyr Stevenson, the JV pitcher, also had a great first game, having only one hit off her powerful left handed pitch. They called the game at 2-1 with Salem taking another win for the night. All of the players played great with one catch that got everyone off the cold wet benches. It was out way past the line and Amanda Tuttle got to it with no problem and snatched it just in time! “I’m pumped about our JV team. We have a lot of depth and will be a force to be reckoned with,” Coach Clarke stated. “If you haven’t been out to one of our games before, oh man! This is the year to come out. We have a killer team,” says Clarke.
On Tuesday, March 2nd, Salem Hills High held an assembly to recognize the students and athletes who have supported their school by “Pursuing Victory with Honor.” Students were chosen for their accomplishments and behavior throughout the school’s many activities. For the boy’s basketball team, Josh Adams was given an award for his good sportsmanship and encouragement to the team as well as Amanda Tuttle from the girl’s basketball team. Along with them was Dallin Gividen for wrestling, Emily Bell and Dylan Nelson for swimming, Jessie Wilkins for cheer, and Taylor Lamb for drill. Mrs. Sessions also spotlighted Mitch Howell, Rhett Anderson, and Trevor Williams from her U.S. Studies class for reaching out to a homeless man and taking him to lunch. Each of these students is hardworking, motivated, and loyal to their school. Salem Hills is proud of their accomplishments and for everything they have contributed to the school.
