Avalanche Awareness

2934

Being aware of avalanches is serious for the Ski and Snowboard club.

 

The rumbling increases in sound until you feel it in your chest. Snow is pouring down the mountainside, and you have to get to cover. Avalanches are killers, and you are now caught in one.

This scenario is exactly what the Ski and Snowboard club prepared for on Wednesday, January 24th. The Avalanche Awareness activity that had been planned months prior taught the students what to do when they found themselves in an avalanche in the backcountry

“The first thing you do is try and get off the slab of snow,” said Madeline Witkowski, president of the Ski and Snowboard Club. That was one of the many steps taught to them by the certified Avalanche instructure at Powder Mountain. Other steps included using environmental clues to find where to go to avoid the snow and to dig yourself a pocket of air so you don’t suffocate. “They only have about 20 minutes,” said Mr. Arne Erisoty, advisor of the Ski and Snowboard Club

Though the main focus was on avalanches, club members did get to play in the snow. After learning how to prepare themselves in an emergency, they were let loose on the resort. The day passed in skiing and shredding the slopes.

The club had a great time and look forward to doing it again next year. Being aware of what to do in an avalanche and how to save your friends is a need to know for those that are out in the backcountry regularly. “It’s a big deal,” said Erisoty. “I’ve never seen the students so serious.”

Fremont baseball takes a loss to Syracuse

Fremont baseball lost to Syracuse at home on Wednesday, April 18th, with a final score of 4-7.

The game picked up quickly, with Syracuse scoring twice in the first inning.

When Fremont got up to bat, the pitcher walked the first four batters, allowing a run for Fremont.

Lex Petersen, number 29, stepped up to the plate and had a great hit to left field. Syracuse’s left fielder caught the ball, but Petersen made up for it by getting an RBI, scoring another run for Fremont and tying the game.

Inning two was both slow and short, with only four batters stepping up to the plate against Fremont, and a three up, three down inning when Syracuse was in the field.

Inning three had another run scored for Syracuse, despite a phenomenal catch in center field by Brayden Clark.

Inning four was off to a great start, with Fremont having a three up three down inning against Syracuse batters.

Though the first two Fremont batters got out, Petersen stepped up again, this time hitting a home run over the right-center fence. This tied the game 3-3.

In the fifth inning, Fremont fell a little short. After 5 batters from Syracuse, the score was 3-7.

Most of these runs were scored off of simple errors from Fremont, and frustrations were running high by the end of it.

Inning six brought a three up, three down inning with Fremont in the field, and when the boys were up to bat, another RBI was hit by Sage Wayment, bringing the score up to 4-7.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, Syracuse made a double play against Fremont, and a strikeout by Austin Taylor, number 12, brought the game to an end with a final score of 4-7 for Syracuse.

Fremont soccer win against Northridge

Fremont beat Northridge High 1-0 on Tuesday, April 17th, and experienced all four seasons in the process. The weather ranged from warm and sunny to cold and hailing throughout the game.

The first half of the game against Northridge was uneventful, with both teams handling the ball frequently.

Despite lots of opportunities, including a near header by Weston Hales, and an almost score on a corner kick by Northridge, neither team scored.

Just a few minutes into the second half, however, Brandon Baray scored a goal, making it the first and only of the game.

Towards the middle of the second half, Northridge tried to score a goal, and during the attempt, Fremont’s keeper was kicked in the face.

Oddly enough, however, there was no call from the ref, and the keeper blocked the shot.

The game continued, and during stoppage time at the end, Kofi Herrick and the keeper from Northridge collided, and both of them went down.

Both of them stayed down, and after a couple minutes, Herrick limped off the field with the help of his coach and teammate.

Northridge’s keeper, however, stayed down considerably longer. After a few more minutes, he was helped off the field by the Northridge coaches.

The next home game is on Tuesday, April 24th against Syracuse.

In his four year high school career, senior, Kegan Leatherow has made it to the state finals twice. In his final year he showed his dominance by placing in, and winning, some of the biggest tournaments that the team competed at.

Though Leatherow did not stay injury free in the four years, he worked his hardest to stay healthy, with the help and support from his team and his family.

“The support I have received from my friends and family in unreal, also my coaches who have seen me through my struggles with injuries and help me recover and be as strong as I am now,” Leatherow said.

Leatherow lost in the state tournament his sophomore and junior year to Terrell Barraclough from Layton High School, and he was devastated.

“Terrell was my biggest competitor in high school, this year he wrestled in a different weight class,” Leatherow explained.

In this years finals, Leatherow wrestled Oakley Ridge from Pleasant Grove. Leatherow got a takedown with 12 seconds left sending the match into overtime making it Kegan’s first overtime match of his senior year.  

“I was by far the most nervous I have ever been for a high school match, it was my senior year I had to prove myself,” Leatherow said.

Leatherow did just that, he proved his dominance as a 120 lb wrestler. Not only did he bring home the 6A 120 lb state title, he also won the lightweight outstanding wrestler award.

Silverline kills the competition at region and state competitions

From the dramatic makeup, to the matching outfits and hair styled the exact same way, inside and out, the drill team is a passionate group of girls.

“I’ve been dancing for 9 years, said senior Sarah May. “I’m passionate about drill because in this sport, one person can’t just pull all the weight, you are only as strong as your weakest link. You have to be your best so you don’t let your team down. You are with the girls so much you become a family and I would do anything for any of the girls.”

As a team, the girls spend a lot of time together and create a bond that is like a family.

“Being on the floor and getting to do what you love with 30 of your best friends is so fun,” said senior Jordan Haines. “We also always make super funny memories at all the late night practices and competitions.”

The girls show perfect uniformity placing them in 2nd place at the Region competition.

Being a drill team member can be a lot of fun, but with it comes a lot of dedication.

“It’s a lot of hard work and takes up a lot of your time. If it’s something you really want to do you will have to work hard for it because it won’t come easy,” May explained. “Silverline is held to high standards and have a high reputation because of the past girls on the team so you have to work very hard to keep it.”

Following in the last year teams footsteps, Silverline placed 2nd overall yet again in their Region competition and moved onto to State finals for the third time in history.

“My experience going to state was bittersweet because I was so happy we made it this far and how well we were doing,” May said.

In the state finals the team took 7th overall, recripcating last years standards high after they placed in the top 10.

“Being able to beat teams that we have always wanted to beat was such a high for all of us, and being able to do it together made it all the more amazing,” Haines said.

Splash into the new swim season

IMG_20171207_085534_124

Swim season is starting up here! What can we expect from this year’s swimmers?

Well, according to Timothy Shupe, head swim coach and math teacher, many of last year’s swimmers returned. Because of this, Shupe has plans to “…start where we left off.”

There are more new girls than there were last year, and he said that this is a challenge because they have a lot to learn, but a good challenge that they are willing to rise to.

“The strongest points on the team are the strong work ethics and perseverance,” said Shupe.

The team as a whole has the ability to work through frustration and setbacks and use them to learn and grow as athletes.

A point that the team and coaches are working together to improve on is the consistency of the team. They are working to get a routine down and be able to be consistently strong in their events.

Some of the things the coaches are doing to help the swimmers improve on their consistency is holding the athletes accountable. They are making sure that the swimmers know what is expected of them, making sure that these expectations are reasonable, and putting consequences in place when they are necessary.

“I love being able to work with the kids and see them improve,” said Shupe.

It sounds like this coach of 11 years has a pretty good handle on things.
