Coed Varsity Cross Country · Catch Me If You Can by Hailey Miller


Hillcrest cross country team started the season out strong with the varsity girls recieving a team medal for placing 3rd overall at the annual Tiger Grizz Invitational at Freeman Park on Sept. 9, 2016. There were over 40 different schools at this invitational.

The Hillcrest varsity boys also ran very well at this invitational. The boys placed 11th out of the many teams that ran this race. Last year the team lost some very fast senior varsity runners, but there is one particular Senior who is taking on the legacy of great runners.

Senior Justin Graham has ran all 4 years of cross country, and has loved every single minute of it. Throughout the years Graham has had to overcome many difficult injuries creating challenges for himself. Graham says, “I’ve had lots of injuries,but ready for a good injury free season!”

Hillcrest Senior Emma Nelson has also has ran cross country all 4 years and is excited for a new season. Nelson says, “I am very excited for my last season of cross country and all the memories that I will be making with my team. We are traveling to a lot of places this year, so we will be spending quite a bit of time together.”

Nelson is excited for the meet schedule this season, they will be traveling long distances to different meets in Seaside, Oregon, and Boise, Idaho.

Hillcrest cross country is hoping for a very successful season.

Senior Captain Zoe Lee, says “We all didn’t know how this season would go, getting a new coach, but I am very excited how the season has been going. We’ve been playing really well and have been having a ton of fun!”

Multiple Teams · Civil War 2016 by Emily Cates


The stress is finally over. The 2016 Civil War with Hillcrest Knights rivalry with the Bonneville Bees ended on Sept. 9. The Knights dominated Bonneville and won with a score of 28-7. Hillcrest keeps the title and wins once again!

The game was flat out intense. They kicked off the game with a helicopter landing into the stadium with Local News 8’s Jeff Landers delivering the game ball. The Hillcrest student section was loud, and crazy. Everyone was screaming “I believe we will win” and loaded with school colors, red face paint, and a whole lot of excitement.

The whole stadium was packed on both sides! They even had to open the area north of the end zone for extra seating. It became standing room only.

Sophomore Hailey Rich commented, “My favorite part was when the helicopter came, and when we all blew the baby powder.”

Hillcrest Sophomore, Maddie Swenson said, “The game was so much fun! Everyone was tightly packed together screaming and jumping for Hillcrest!”

After a score of 0-0 at halftime, the Knights really came back with a vengeance. The team scored the first touchdown of the game in the third quarter, creating a 6-0 score.

After Bonneville returned with a touchdown and successful extra point kick, the Knights took control of the game scoring three more touchdowns. One touchdown was a follow through of an interception catch by Sophomore Oakley Hussey.  

The game was over for Bonneville at that point, and that could be seen as Bonneville fans began exiting the stadium.

At the end of the fourth quarter with two minutes left, everyone had gathered down at concessions area to run out onto the field.

Once the game ended Hillcrest students run out on the field, climbed on the goal posts, and gave the posts a new red paint job. Sophomore Jordan Peterson, and Varsity football player, ran around the field happy and shirtless with his spraypainted abs.

Hillcrest walked away with a win, and the goal posts remain red.
