Payson High School Japanese students proved that they don’t just practice the Japanese language all day when they took first place in the first ever multi-school Japanese Sports Festival, held at Skyridge High School up in Lehi on October ninth. “It looked like we got third place, but after a recount, we actually won first place,” says Mrs. Berrio, the school’s Japanese teacher, “We were on a team with Salem Hills High School, which was a lot of fun. So instead of being rivals, we were friendly and won together.”

Everyone talks about football, basketball, and baseball but we never talk about alternate sports like skateboarding. Skateboarding is a very difficult sport to become good at. It takes a lot of time and dedication. These kids are out there every day practicing and they deserve some recognition.
