Hockey Team Gets New Coaching Staff

The Judge Memorial Varsity hockey team has a whole new line-up this year, and not just on the roster. Former assistant coach Anthony Pike has taken over the position of head coach on the team. Cole Fisher, another assistant from last year, has also returned with his teammate Chuck German for the University of Utah hockey team. Both Fisher and German have played on the U of U hockey team for a few years, and are contributing both their college level experience and their skating skills to the betterment of the team. The Bulldogs have also been blessed with a group of new freshman players, including a new goalie and several sharp skaters who are already adding their talent to the team at practices. After losing veteran players Sean Abel, Marc Potvien, Kris Kanger, Dakota Kummer, and Chris VanWagenen, the team is barely at a full roster. However, with all the new talent and perspective, the team stands a high chance of having another great season.

"This was the hardest working team I think I have had during a two-a-days," announced coach Cordova about this year's Bulldogs. The hard work seemed to pay off as the Bulldogs came out victorious in their season opener against North Sanpete 42-7.
The Bulldogs are returning after one of their best seasons in nearly 20 years including a playoff run that lasted till quarterfinals. The Bulldogs had a bye last week but play Woods Cross, a 4A school tonight at Judge.

Girls Basketball-Ready for a New Sesaon

Girls basketball is getting ready for another great season. Many players
kept in shape by joining an AAU team and some girls are playing fall sports.
Try-outs should be the beginning of November. With the addition of a new
coach for the sophomore team, this season should be great.

Boys Soccer

Even though the boys soccer season is still months away, there has been talk among the players about the appointment of Kelly Terrill as the new head coach. Terrill, who succeeds Mike Gillis as head of the team, attended Judge Memorial and graduated from Notre Dame. He is anticipated to bring much experience and success to the team throughout this next season. Currently Terrill coaches for Sparta United and has been a part of the club for over 4 years. Hopefully Coach Terrill will get the team back on track and put a few wins up on the board. For returning players, there is an informational meeting on September 5 at 7:30 in the Judge Auditorium.

Largest Dance I class ever

Judge Memorial Dance Program Packed With Young Talent

Headed by Ms. Jeanette Sawaya, the dance department at Judge Memorial Catholic High School presents a vivid pallet of classes for all dancers. Held in the Weigand Dance Studio, boys and girls alike are encouraged to participate in the multitude of dance styles offered by this renowned department for all levels.

This week we turn our attention to Dance I. This year the dance department prides itself in catering to the largest Dance I class ever taught by Ms. Sawaya. Although this class contains freshmen and sophomores, the boys at judge opted to let pass this wonderful opportunity. The course contains a large composite of dance styles, everything from jazz, to ballet, to several native African dances taught by the dynamic Ms. Washington. All things considered, those who had were fortunate enough to register for this dance class can assure themselves the privilege of an eventful year.
