On the 18TH of October, selected members of Mr. LeMmon, Ms. Carter, and Ms. Lundgren's World Studies, 9TH grade classes, got the chance to visit the Hare Krishna Temple. The classes first went to the temple to learn about the Hinduism religion.

Members of the temple told us about why they have Holi-- The Festival of Colors. Spanish Fork's Holi Festival is the largest in the western hemisphere. It has over 120, 000 people attend each year.

Championship Wrestling

By Mateen Lomax

Championship Wrestling is a Spanish Fork Junior High tradition.  It is exciting for students all over the school who plan on participating.

The head coach, John Webb was the former head coach at Weber State, the head assistant coach at BYU, and an assistant coach at Oklahoma State. The assistant coach Dave Clark has been a former coach at Cedar High School and an assistant coach at Spanish Fork High School.  These coaches are the reason that we are able to have a wrestling team in the first place.
