You need the uniforms because we are getting to the point where we are going to do our first concert on October 17th and we have many more to come.
Diamond Fork Jr High invaded Spartan country on Tues, Sept 19, but they were repulsed by our varsity and JV tennis teams. The varsity squad took four of five matches, only dropping the #2 doubles spot. The JV team swept all five matches.

Match of the day goes to Emilee Nicholls who played very well against a hard hitting opponent in the #2 singles spot.
