Many of you may know that Spanish Fork’s High School varsity football team started their season a couple of days before school started on the August 21st.   Now the Dons are five games into their season and are doing great. They hold a record of four wins and a lone loss.         

The Dons started their season at home by playing the Park City Miners. This game was very lopsided and ended in a 53-0 blowout in favor of the Dons.  In this meeting, the Dons looked very good with their defense being the most impressive.

Our Cross Country racers are off to a good start.   At a recent meet held Friday September 7, 2012, this Howl reporter got to see our incredible runners in action.

The team was amazing.  There was lots of fun, and excitement.  A level of confidence was in all the runners.  They were all well trained and knew what they had to do to win.  Most of them were really humble, but they all did amazing.

Our girls team got 4th place and our boys got 3rd.   Runner Heston Anderson took 2nd overall.
