March 28 the Trojan Track Team traveled to Stansbury for the second track meet of the year. This was the first time Morgan has had a track meet at the new region member Stansbury.  Tooele, Grantsville, Dugway, Wendover, Stansbury  and Morgan competed on this overcast and cold day.  Many parents followed their sons and daughters to give them the expected Morgan support and help cheer on the team.

Wednesday, March 21, started the track season for the 2012 edition of the Trojan Track Team.  Morgan hosted a five team region meet with Bear River, Tooele, Ben Lomond, and visitor St. Joseph.  Weather is always a concern for a track meet but the athletes had sunshine and warmth and no wind, a great day to begin the season.  The first meet is always exciting because there are newcomers to the team that are just seeing their first track competition, and the returning team members are anxious to see if they can improve on last years’ marks.  Coaches have the very same feeling as the athletes; what will the new members bring to the team and how well will the older athletes perform with an added year of experience.

The Morgan boys Basketball team competed in the Idaho Prep Basketball Tournament this past weekend. The tournament took place in Twin Falls, Idaho at Canyon Ridge High School and O’Leary Middle School. They beat the Rupert Spartans 44 to 27, and Filer 60 to 26 on Friday evening. On Saturday the team continued the winning streak by beating Burley 55 to 40. This secured them a spot in the championship game against the Boise Slam. Morgan entered this game as the underdogs but still came out victorious crushing the Slam 64 to 54 winning the tournament. Morgan played extremely well as a team, which was key in winning the tournament.  The coaches, Jamie Spens, Troy Butterfield, and Chad Ovard played a huge factor in the boy’s success. With the support of their family members the boys played with an extra level of intensity. The team looks forward to bringing home more victories in the future.

One walking trail in Mountain Green parallels old highway, directly east of the Mountain Green exit. This walking trail was a community effort and took the dedicated work of many individuals to make it a reality.   In 1993, it was recognized by members of the community that a safety hazard existed for young children, walkers, and bike riders who traveled from Monte Verde, Polls and the Highlands to the Old Farm Market or from one subdivision to the other. Pedestrians had to walk on the edge of old highway road which is the main thoroughfare through Mountain Green and connects to Trappers Loop. Especially because of the increased traffic from Ogden Valley due to the completion of Trappers Loop road and the fact that this traffic had to use the old highway in order to connect with the interstate, an effort was made to solve the safety hazard—by creating a walking path.
