On Thursday, September 15, Springville High’s Varsity girls’ soccer took a win 2–1 against our local rival Maple Mountain. The Lady Red Devils entered the field with extreme determination and pride to prove their dominance over the Lady Golden Eagles. Springville’s Amie Critchfield immediately scored the first goal by dodging an aggressive defense and blew past opposing goalie, Kara Betts.
As the Lady Red Devils approached the final few minutes of the game, the score was still tied 1–1, the crowd roaring with enthusiasm. Elsie Rowe feeling the support of her peers, drives through a superior defense and scores the winning goal.

Last Thursday night was an eventful night with the all-important homecoming tradition, “Burning of the S,” located at the softball field behind the school. Before the burning of the “S” took place, the homecoming light parade which involved many clubs and athletic teams weaved through the streets of Springville.
After the light parade, students gathered around the softball field to watch Mr. Drollinger and Mr. Ostler light the “S” with flares. While the “S” was burning, it caught the Timpanogos Wolf mascot that was stabbed onto the” S” by a pitchfork to show the spirit of the Springville Red Devils.
When the burning of the S concluded, friends either went home or stayed and socialized with each other.
Antoni Jimenez said, “It was such a good time I wish it never ended.”
Nothing can beat Springville’s Red Devil spirit.

Springville’s Lady Red Devils tennis matched up against the Timpview T-birds on Tuesday, September 13, and suffered a surprising defeat. Even though the girls’ tennis team lost, this has motivated them to practice even harder so they can win their next match. The determination that these girls have to improve is rock solid.
