Mark Hunter, the Utah Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (UIAAA) president, announced Wednesday, November 28, 2017, to a packed Maple Mountain High School student body crowd, that Maple Mountain earned the prestigious Utah Director’s Cup for the 2017-2018 school year. Mark said the Utah Director’s Cup is based on three components: 40 percent on varsity state finish standings, 40 percent on the combined GPA for each program that competes at state competitions; and 20 percent on the Utah High School Activities Association’s (UHSAA) sportsmanship initiative.

When asked about this award, Principal DeAnn Nielsen said, “The award is significant because it demonstrates a high competency of academics along with performing well at the state playoffs. We have high expectations in sportsmanship as well as excelling in fine arts and sports. We are pleased with the hard work of all our students and coaches.”

“The Director’s Cup is a well-rounded state award. It encompasses the entire athletic program at MMHS as well as academics. We received this award four out of the last five years. This means so much to receive this prestigious award because it is based on the overall performance of our athletes, said Athletic Director, Dave Boyack, “Our girls’ soccer team took state and our girls’ cross country team took second at state; even our marching band took state this year.”

Congratulations to our coaches, student-athletes, and athletic director. The UHSAA started this program seven years ago and Maple Mountain has won this award four years out of the last five.
