First round of state full of hope for the Cross Country team


The cross country team has been training since the first week of June, regardless of the weather and any other problems that may have occurred.

“This is one of the fastest team the school has ever had, so we should place really good in State,” said Mr. Hansen, biology teacher and coach of the cross country team.

In fact the team managed to end up second in region this year, and now is looking forward to doing the best possible at State.

The first round was on the 10th of October, and the Cowboys cross country team placed third in the division.

Looking forward, Isaac Nordgren, junior and runner for the cross country team, said “we might not win State now, but we are not losing any Varsity player this year and next year we could do great”.

At the moment the cross country team has to face the last trainings before the second round of State on the 24th of October.

A new school year has came, either you are brand new to a high school or you might be returning for another year, or if your this specific student then you might have traveled the world to be able to come to America to try high school in the American view.  Massimo Ciashetti is a foreign exchange student that is from Italy. He has come to Grantsville High School all the way to Utah to try highschool in the American way and see how things are different here than it is in Italy.  He decided that he wanted to try something new and come to school here in America. When he and his family went on a family vacation to America they went to Los Angeles and visited the Grand Canyon.  After they got back Massimo was interested in coming to school here in America to try something different and he thought that it would be an amazing experience.  Him and his family found an agency that is for foreign exchange students and they got all of his information and put him on the website for any family in America to choose him to come live with them and go to school in America.  A Family in Grantsville Utah chose him to come live with them and go to school in Grantsville. I asked him, “Why did you choose to come here? There is seriously nothing here. He said, “ I was put on a website for foreign exchange students and a family here picked me and that's why I came here” He can’t choose where he gets to go. He got picked by a family and then he traveled all the way from Rome, Italy to New York to Chicago then to Salt Lake to meet his new family in America. He still has been trying to get used to everything.
