February Edition of the Mane Street Journal

Harlee Huff

A new year, a new magazine, and a whole lot of new stories. It's February, the month of love and laughter and we really hope you love this month's magazine. We have a little something for everyone this month. For the mystery lovers, we have the story of the mysterious Western Arms pennant. For the dance lovers, we have an article on Payson High School's amazing Dance Department and for the learning lovers, we have an article all about the Advanced Learning Center in Salem. So, without further ado, we present to you this months edition of The Mane Street Journal.

It's Showtime

Garrison W. Serynek of The Lions Roar Newspaper

Payson High School has always been known for their incredible student section and for always being involved in every sporting event, but there is one sport that tops just about all of them when it comes to attendance. A sport that gives a different meaning to entertainment, a sport that can go from 0-60 in a blink of an eye, and a sport that causes it’s fans to make the whole building quake. If you haven’t guessed it yet, then obviously you have never been to a single one of these games. I’m talking about the next generation of showtime basketball.

The Huddle

Article by Sabryne Kelly

It's common for a sports team to gather together and huddle  before the start of a tournament or a game. What is the reason for this huddle? The huddle is known to boost morale and for teammates to give each other “good luck,” but, sometimes it's more of a tradition. For example, a famous cheer for the cheerleaders is during their performance at halftime games, they gather into a group and yell, “AIN'T NO PARTY LIKE A PAYSON PARTY, CAUSE A PAYSON PARTY DON’T STOP! ROAR!”

We are Still the Mighty Lions

The Lions Roar Newspaper

In the January Edition of The Lions Roar Newspaper we have decided to recreate old time black and white photos that are around the halls at PHS. Most of you have probably noticed the photos of different sport teams, clubs, and activities from our past that line the halls. These photos are packed with 100 years of history. Uniforms, outfits, and styles have definitely changed, but it is undeniable that our school spirit hasn’t.

People of Payson

By: Briton Wilson of Lions Roar Newspaper

Here at Payson High School we all love to do different things with different people.
There are things like Choir where they go on lots of different performances around Payson, such as different ward parties and other things that happen around Christmas time. They also have their own Christmas Concert that is probably one of the most amazing performances they do. Another thing they do is go on a Salt Lake Temple Square trip. For this trip they perform different performances at Temple Square, at the old Chapel, or the other Visitors Centers as well.

Swimming Their Way to State

Unlike other sports, the only races that matters for state is region. This Year Seth Peterson, Travis Pitcher, Kaden Flippen, Case Kunz, have had a record breaking season, and are going to state.
