First of all, congratulations to all of you who have signed up for either the 5k, half-marathon or full marathon that will take place in our beautiful Morgan Valley this summer!  For those of you who haven’t, it will be an exciting experience, a first for Morgan Valley and I definitely encourage you to participate.  I’ve hoped one day there would be a marathon in this amazing place to run and it’s about to happen for the first time in less than five months!

It was an alumni reunion in the stands last Saturday night. Many Trojan fans made the trip to Salt Lake City to watch our Morgan boys basketball team play for the state 3A title. Everyone expected a close game but I don’t think anyone expected a 44 to 33 final score.

Wow, what a game! Morgan fans got their moneys worth last Friday night as the Trojans took on the Desert Hills Thunder in the state 3A semifinals. There was never a dull moment from tip off to final buzzer.

Round two, Morgan Trojans vs. Richfield Wildcats. Bright and early Thursday morning, February 24, 2011, and the Trojan Boys find themselves playing a big game in a big stadium.
A strong turn out of Morgan fans sat ready as the jump ball was tossed. Tip goes to the wildcats. A quick pass underneath to Richfield’s big man and the Wildcats are on the board. Morgan works for an open shot against a feisty defense.

The Morgan Lady Trojans entered the State playoffs last week riding a 13 game winning streak after winning their initial first round game vs. North Sanpete by a whopping 51 points. All signs pointed to a strong run to the 3A championship, or at least getting to the championship game and letting the chips fall where they may.

With  basketball season  done and the weather getting  warmer it will be spring and will be having baseball  games soon.
So here is a little  history about  Morgan High’s Baseball.
Trojans  started baseball in 1948 !  
This season will be  57 season for Trojan  baseball!
They hold  six  region championships  in baseball: 1951, 1956, 1961, 1966, 1969, 2009!  
Their only state  baseball  championship was sixty years ago! They record was   22 wins 0 losses!  
Remember who they played when  they won  that game?  The answer was South Sevier!  Morgan ranks 43rd in all time wins for baseball, according to the Utah High School Activities Association
Their  first baseball  game will be at Roy High School on March 7  at 3:30 p.m.
What was Roy’s record last season  in baseball ?   The Royals record was 11 wins 12 losses and 1 tie! Doug Johnston, the editor of The Morgan County News went to Roy High but likes Morgan more!
 I think the Trojan  Baseball record will be 22 wins 2  losses this season!

Local mom and fitness enthusiast, Karen Nelson will be starting a running club for kids of all ages.  While helping with the initial planning of Morgan’s first Annual Marathon, Karen was inspired to fulfill her dream of working with kids in the fitness arena.  She has always wanted to do some kind of running type activity that involved children and a running club seems to be the perfect fit.

It’s that time of year for high school hoops players, win or report to your spring sports coach. Last Friday our Trojan Boys showed they would like to keep it indoors for a few more games!
I had a chance to catch up with coach Jim Wiscombe on Thursday before the game. We discussed briefly the Region 11 champs season and how the team is feeling as they move into the state playoffs.

The Morgan Valley Marathon, half marathon and 5k are now less than 6 months away.  It may seem impossible or out of reach for many but if you change your state of mind from “I can’t run a marathon” to  “I will run a marathon” that will be your first step in accomplishing this goal.

The Lady Trojans basketball team played a Region 11 game at Juan Diego on Tuesday Jan. 18th.  Last year, on their last trip to Draper to play the Soaring Eagles, the Morgan squad saw their 19 game winning streak come to a screeching halt, as Juan Diego won 54-51. This year would be different, as the Trojans pretty much  had it their way,  and won by a score of 84-28.

I’ve had the opportunity to interview Morgan High School Volleyball Coach, Liz Wiscombe many times before, so as I sat down on Wednesday to interview her about the volleyball team’s recent win of the 3A state championship, it seemed like old times.

2008-09  MHS 38, Delta 45
2006-07  MHS 51, Delta 52
2004-05  MHS 46, Delta 38
1998-99  MHS 41, Delta 53
Which former Delta head coach is now at Morgan?  The answer is Jim Wiscombe.

The Morgan girls basketball squad traveled to Orem Tuesday Dec. 7th to take on 4A power Mtn. View high school. The Lady Bruins are traditionally a very tough team to beat and are always in the running for a state championship. It would prove to be a great battle between two great teams.
