If you weren’t there, you should have been. What am I talking about, exactly? The Superstar Rally! On September 8, the football field was a mass of colors, each representing grades 9-12, alumni, and faculty. School spirit was in everyone as the competition went on. Highlights were Beauty and the Beast (nice dresses, guys!), Paper Towel Nose Roll (yes, it’s as crazy as it sounds), Frozen T-shirt Contest (I commend you alumni for your new method) and Late for the Game (there was kissing!). So who conquered the competition?
The seniors of 2011 were all invited to attend the senior sunrise, friday the 27th of august. There were student council members at the gate giving each person a balloon, and a paper. On that paper we wrote our goals to acclomplish before graduation. When we saw the sun come up over the school, we all let go of our balloons. While we waited there were donuts and chocolate milk for everyone.
On Friday September 3, 2010 the Payson Lions’ football team walked out on the field knowing anything could happen. Through a very tough game the Lions’ fought the West Lake Thunder in a battle that Payson will grow from. Varsity quarterback, Clint Bateman, had this to say about the game, “we need to work harder and not have as many mental mistakes. We need to put this game behind us and prepare for Juab.” Although the Lions’ lost they are not going to dwell on the past. They are looking forward and working hard to prepare for the Homecoming game this Friday against Juab.
