Eastmont Middle School’s seventh-grade team and Indian Hills Middle School’s eighth- and ninth-grade teams won first place awards in Canyons School District’s first-ever Middle School Intramurals Soccer Tournament.
Second-place awards went to Midvale Middle School’s ninth-grade team, Butler Middle School’s eighth-grade team, and Mount Jordan Middle School’s seventh-grade team.
About 200 students participated in the districtwide Soccer Tournament, held June 2 at Union Middle School. However, more than twice as many participated on the school level, making Soccer the most popular of the Middle School Intramurals programs to date.
Canyons District kicked off its Intramurals Program in fall 2009 to offer students competitive athletic and academic events in which everyone is welcome to participate. Last year, students participated in Cross Country, 3-on-3 Basketball, and Ultimate Frisbee; this year, the Intramurals Program included Cross Country, Chess, and Soccer.
