Academy Awards

This is the cast of our award-winning show: Provo Hills. We took Best Picture, Best Character (Jon Doxey), and People's choice!

The ward provided food--Costa Vida catered, so we all got delicious free burritos or salads. It was quite yummy. And I looked absolutely amazing!

Intramural Championship

During this season, we developed a rival team: the tie-dyes. I don't know if they were aware that they were our rivals, but they were. We played them three times. The first time, during the regular season, we were losing at the beginning. But their team was so annoying, we couldn't bear to loose. So we stepped it up and beat them! It felt good.

Then the tournament came. Both of us were coming off two victories. The game started, and we just couldn't do anything on offense. We couldn't catch; we couldn't run. Luckily, for the most part, they couldn't do anything either because our defense is rock solid. However, they have this one really fast girl. She would try to run it, but we could usually stop her. But one time, our middle defense person missed her flags. Then I ran into one of their players and missed her entirely. Then our safety fell down. Despite the fact that I chased her down the entire field, she still scored. It was their only score of the game; they won.

So we went to the losers' bracket of the tournament. And we won our next two games. The tie-dyes lost their next game, so we were to play them again. We planned our attack. We knew their defensive weaknesses, and we planned to take full advantage of them. We knew who their fast girls were, and we shut them down. Every pass they threw got intercepted, and we ended up winning dramatically: 30-7. It felt so good. That win was good enough for us to take 2nd place.

Provo Hills

This week our FHE group made movies for the Oscar Night we're having this Saturday. We did a spoof of a TV series called "Lagoona Beach," but called our show "Provo Hills: The Real Utah County"
