Her favorite sport to play is volleyball because she thinks it is fun. Since Chelsea loves sports; in her free time she enjoys playing basketball outside with her siblings. In facto her favorite sibling is Dakota because he doesn’t bother her as much. Chelsea also enjoys reading class at Mormon Trail and getting to be in Mrs. Porterfield’s class. Her favorite food is pizza. It’s Chelsea’s first year at the High School building and we are excited to welcome her here and see what the future has in store for her.

Saint Pride

Mormon Trail football team had an historic season. They made it to the playoffs for the first time in Mormon Trail history, and ended with a winning record of 6 & 4. All four teams that they lost to were ranked in the top ten in the state, and had a total of 5 losses between them. The team had a lot of community support throughout the season. Mormon Trail brought a bigger crowd to the playoff game than the home team. Coach Johnson said, “I’d like to say how proud I am of the team for all the hard work they put in and sacrifices they’ve made to make this season the success it was. The seniors had a goal of making the state playoffs from day one of freshman year, and even though they came up short a few times, they never stopped believing that they would reach that goal. It’s a testament to them and their work ethic. What a great group of young men!” Congratulations Saints!IMG_8128

IMG_7310Payton Gwinn is a sophomore here at Mormon Trail and is described by one of her friends as hyper/energetic. Payton loves watching movies, hanging out with her friends, and eating. Her favorite food is tacos. If she could be anything in the world she would choose to be a celebrity, because they get paid a lot of money. Payton’s favorite sport is track because she loves running. Her goals for the year are to go to state for the 100 and 400 meter dash. When she gets older she plans to attend Iowa Central or Iowa State and become a teacher or a closed captionist. Payton’s favorite memory from high school was going TPing with Gracie and Angela in 7th grade and she tried to climb in the tree. She got stuck and the peed her pants. Payton is excited for the years to come and hopes to make more memories with her friends as she goes along.
