Two SHS Swim Records Fell this Weekend as Mighty Red Devils Place 3rd at State!

Lisa and Daniel Simmons


The Boys 200 Medley Relay record swim (previously held for nine years by Tim Call, Daniel Simmons, Calvin Clark, and Bryant Taylor) was broken by 6 tenths of a second with the new standard set at 1:40.12 on Friday by Jake Anderson, Spencer McQueen, Cameron Green, and Brock Hargett.

Another longstanding record (held by Wesley Johnson for 14 years) fell in the Boys 100 Backstroke, and is now held by Jake Anderson, who became the first SHS swimmer to go under 54 seconds with a 53.87.

The girls came close in both freestyle relays, and Abbi Morris came within a few 10ths of a second of besting the 100 Breaststroke record (retained by Kim Clark).

Many personal records were also attained in tapered, strong, and heartfelt swims at the 4A State Championships.  Please see the details below.

Students Who Made a Difference

Brooke Bromley and Naomi Pruett have gotten the word out. They have increased membership by 86%. The FCCLA Program at Springville High School is thriving this year.

Bromley and Pruett organized the biggest service project that Springville’s FCCLA program has ever seen. 

“Our program raised over $1,000 dollars to help a child in a third world country have a better life,” said Bromley.

Springville High is so proud of the all of the work these two students have done to make the world a better place. Keep it up!

Window on the Workplace

Brad Northcutt, Work-based Learning Coordinator

On Wednesday, January 25, Ric Hartman, Superintendent of the Springville Division of Wildlife Resources office, spoke to students at lunch about careers with the DWR and its various departments.  Students were able to learn about the many different areas of focus with the DWR and their duties. 

Most came away impressed by the sheer number of jobs for the State of Utah that need to be done to manage the fish and wildlife we have.  Students commented also on the fact that Mr. Hartman enjoyed his job immensely due to the variety of duties and experiences he has had.
