Fall Season Wrap Up


Football wrap-up

Timpview’s 2021 football season ended after the loss to Lehi in the quarter-finals of state. Timpview’s varsity team played 12 games this season and won 9 of them. This was sadly the last high school game for 22 seniors, who will graduate this year. Timpview scored a total of 452 points over the 12 games they played, with their highest-scoring games being against Alta and Highland, where we scored 62 points against the other teams. Our biggest lead in a game this season was against Kearns Highschool where we won with a 54 point lead. 

Taylor, one of the team captains told the Timpview Journalism Staff, “Overall I feel we had it going for us. We had great talent, great coaching and just overall a great program. We all worked together as a team and in doing so we created a bond that would pretty much change the whole season itself.” He continued to explain, “ One game that stood out to me the most was probably the game against Bingham. The whole week preparing for that team was just an amazing experience. We all were working hard and at the same time having fun. We knew Bingham was a tough team but in the end, we pulled through and came home with the win.”

We are proud for the amazing, clean wins our team took home, and look forward to an even better season next year.


Volleyball wrap-up

Last week, Timpview’s Girls’ Volleyball Team took home a hard loss in 4 sets to the Mountain View Bruins. Timpview’s Journalism Staff asked senior middle blocker Brielle Rueckert what a repeat title would mean to the team. She told us, “I think that it would mean a lot. It would show all the hard work that we’ve put in this season, and that we can do it twice in a row because that’s big, to be able to win twice in a row.” 

Although the Lady T-Birds were not able to claim this repeat title, that doesn’t mean the team doesn’t have its own victories from this year. Rueckert is one of only three seniors leaving, and she’s committed to Weber State for volleyball. The girls’ volleyball team will still have five Juniors, ten Sophomores and eleven Freshman. Coach Charmay Lee told our staff about her plans for the upward trajectory of our team: “we’re trying to become a program that wins multiple state championships, not just one.”

When Junior setter Silina Damuni was asked about how the dynamic of the team changed from last year to this year, she said, “This year we’re a family, we play more like a family and you can see on the court, how easy it is for us to play with each other because we love each other and we’re all just sisters to each other.”  We’re hopeful that that sisterhood will only continue to increase and strengthen in the coming years as Timpview looks forward to next year and a shot at redemption. Future championships aside, we are proud of our lady T-Birds for bringing us honor and putting in their best effort for Timpview High.


It’s sad to say that all of Timpview’s fall sports are over. We are proud of both Timpview’s Football team and Volleyball team, who tried their best during the state. With the end of the fall season comes the winter sports which include: Basketball, Wrestling, and Track. A state championship is just around the corner!
