The Lady Red Devils soccer team beat Uintah in a punishing 13-0 victory. Lexi Eaton and Jen Mason both had four goals! Autumn Woods, Brooke Larsen, Kasha Bandmann, Megan Marchbanks, and Sarah Duncan all had one goal each. The girls played very well spreading out and playing as a team, sharing the ball to put points on the board. Their next opponent is Spanish Fork at Springville on September 28. Good luck Lady Red Devils!
Last Friday, the Red Devils traveled to Vernal to take on the Uintah Utes on their home turf. After the first half, Springville led Uintah 14-0. Uintah attempted early to jump for the lead, but came up short; ending the third quarter 27-7 in favor of Springville with Steve Bate throwing three touchdown passes and Dallion Ollerton catching two of them. When the Red Devils are on fire, it’s impossible to slow them down.
In spite of the Ute’s celebrating their homecoming, Springville gave no mercy, dishing out a final score of 48-7. Students and community members are encouraged to attend Springville’s next home game against Maple Mountain this Friday, October 1.

On Saturday, September 18, Springville High School celebrated Homecoming weekend with the much anticipated Homecoming Dance. Kaisa Rosenberg was announced as Homecoming Queen; daughter of Shane and Tana Rosenberg and was escorted by Nic Anderson.
In all there were four runner-ups: 1st Attendant being the dazzling Tess Allman, daughter of Von and Susan Allman and escorted by Alex Knowlton, 2nd Attendant was the stunning Katie Keech, daughter of Kelly and Cici Keech and escorted by Taylor Sutterfield. 3rd Attendant was the breathtaking Caitlyn Erickson, daughter of David and Cathie Erickson and escorbed by Caleb Reidhead, and 4th Attendant the beautiful Jennifer Luther, daughter of Michael and Judith Luther and escorted by Steven Brown.
Homecoming week brought with it many exciting activities sponsored by the high school. Among these were the traditional burning of the “S” and the Homecoming Parade. Although these events occur each year, they nevertheless are filled with creativity and ingenuity.
The Homecoming parade this year was a night parade, causing it to be called the “Light” Parade. Students this year had the opportunity to create glowing floats using many luminescent devices, from glows sticks and black lights to glowing light suits. With many clubs, teams, and other school sponsored groups, including the student council, participating the light parade, it was a glowing success.
After the parade came to a stop, students piled out to the baseball diamond for the burning of the “S.” Painted green and decorated with a lion skewered on a red pitch fork, it stirred excitement for the following game day. As the “S” burst into a raging inferno with students chanting, “Burn that cat,” it foreshadowed the victory over Payson perfectly.
