The Boys Tennis Varsity Team are co-district champions! The team had 3 first place wins, a 2nd place win, and 1 3rd place win in the different divisions. Booker Ward, Brandon Mayo, David Jones, and Mason Iverson went undefeated to win in a sweep against all the other junior highs. Treylon Lasson and Trey Stephens lost some tough battles to Mapleton and Payson, but fought back in the end to earn a 3rd place title. Jesse Clark and Jace Dyches won 2nd place after a tiebreaker. This district championship has put Salem Tennis on the map. Mapleton Junior High has NEVER lost a district tennis championship. This year, they get to share the championship title with us. Great Job Spartans! 

The Junior Varsity team also played well against other Nebo junior highs in the District JV Tournament beating Mapleton for the championship by 1 point.  Parker Samuels, Doubles team Cory Collins and Gavin Lamb, and Doubles team Tanner Pope and Tyler Ritchie won 1st place in a sweep. Hunter Riding took 2nd place in the second singles division and Decker Lewis and Jonathon Tullis finished 2nd in the third doubles division.
