Both the boy and girls cross country had a fantastic season. At our district championships last weekend the girls Varsity and JV teams both took 1st place. This is the second undefeated, back to back district championship win for the girls. The boys took 2nd place by a razor thin 3 point margin behind Mt. Nebo. Some runners improved their personal best by a full minute on this final meet. Good job Cross Country for racing classy all season and representing our school and community very well.
Wally Averett, Dylan Terry, Luke Roylance, Mike Bennett, Kambren Nielson, Harrison Roney, Chase Haslem, and Parker Henderson represented Mapleton Jr. High as the golf team the last two months. These students performed in 6 tournaments throughout the district and in the district final tournament last Monday, October 9th, Mapleton took 3rd as a team and Mike Bennett placed 6th in the individuals. All boys showed excellent growth in their character, skills and abilities as golfers.
The girls tennis team had a fantastic season. They went 6-0 on the season and won the district tournament. They played great, showed great sportsmanship, and were great examples as to what a Mapleton Mustang should look like.

Congratulations to Becky Clement on receiving the “Spirit of the Mustang” award for her outstanding service to the students of MJHS. This is what Mrs. Carey, her nominator had to say about Mrs. Clement.
Becky has the one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. No matter how crazy her day is she always has a smile on her face. You can often hear her ask others how they are doing or how their day is going. If I need help covering a class, she is always there.
