       On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in1918, the Armistice was signed and World War I reached its end. Armistice Day was celebrated the next year under President Woodrow Wilson. Twelve years later, Armistice Day became a National Holiday that we now know as Veteran’s Day.

       Payson High School honored United States veterans by holding a Veteran’s Day assembly November 11. This year’s assembly was unique because of student involvement in the program; it was truly a great assembly.

           Our Lady Lion Girls Soccer team did very well this year! They took 3rd in region and had the opportunity to go to state. Unfortunately they went against a tough opponent Bear River for their first state game, and sadly they weren’t able to go any farther.

They played very well the 1st half and held them scoreless for 30 minutes. Kaylee Cook had an amazing goal, and Kaneesha Goodworth worked her magic in the goalie box. Taylor Quist was the player of the game for her very last high school soccer game.

 Like all sports volleyball is very competitive. The first team to play is the sophomore team, second is the junior varsity on one court and at the same time the freshman team is playing on a different court, finally the varsity team plays. For the seniors they sit and help, cheer, and motivate the younger girls playing during their matches until the varsity game is about to begin. And after the younger girls play, they help cheer on the varsity girls who are playing and help them with anything that is needed.
