8th Grade Promotion
The Andy Hull Award
Last year, Desert Mountain established the Andy Hull Award, named after student athlete, Andy Hull. While Andy attended Desert Mountain, he played two years for our school's baseball team. After leaving Desert Mountain, he continued to play baseball at Sandra Day O’Connor where he was their star pitcher. Andy was a fantastic and memorable human being. His nickname was Sunshine because he always seemed to brighten everyone’s day. Unfortunately, we lost Andy much too soon; he is missed! Andy had a big impact on everyone he met. To honor his memory, we recognize the athletic team with the highest G.P.A during their season.
We are so proud to announce that this year all middle school athletic teams had at least a 3.27 G.P.A. Congratulations, student athletes. Although all teams did incredibly well, this year’s recipients are Girls’ Volleyball. They had an average G.P.A of 3.90, with ten of them having a 4.0. This is an amazing accomplishment. The Girls’ Vollleyball Team were also the Division 1A Runner-Ups. Congratulations to the following female volleyball players: Sydney Poston, Emilee Thomas Baker, Ava Harding, Alexis Brown, Kylie Akey, Sierra Mailo, Jazzmyn Stacy, Angelica Kramer, Elizabeth Cunningham, Kyleigha Ongstad, Victoria Broderick and Addison France. Also, congratulations to Coaches LaPorte and Booth.
Thank You, 8th Grade Athletes! - A word from Coach Booth
Although all of our athletes have had an outstanding year, we would like to give a special thank you to our 8th grade athletes for everything you have done to represent Desert Mountain. You led by example and demonstrated excellence on the court and field as well as in the classroom. This year’s promoting class has done an outstanding job throughout middle school, earning banners in Softball and Girls’ Volleyball, while continuing to excel in the classroom. You have represented Desert Mountain with class. I have no doubt you will continue your success throughout your high school career in both athletics and academics.
To our spring sport athletes, although your season ended all too soon, you handled it with maturity and grace. I’m proud of how you have navigated this difficult situation. You deserve recognition for your hard work and sportsman-like attitude.
Please enjoy this slide show recognizing and honoring our 8th grade baseball and softball athletes. All of you have made me proud to be a part of your journey as Athletic Coordinator at Desert Mountain.
Good Luck in high school!!
