Article Date: 
4 October, 2013 (All day)


Breanna M. Hurlbut grew up in western Oklahoma and moved to Utah in July 2009, prior to her eighth grade year. It was during that year that she was introduced to volleyball.  In 2011, she and her family moved to Morgan, where she made the high school volleyball team. She now loves the game, her team and her coaches! A three-sport athlete, Brea also loves basketball and track, and will seek to give 100 percent into being an integral part of her teams’ competing for state titles this year.  
Being a positive influence on and off the court is very important to Brea; she loves people, loves her Lord, and seeks to make a positive impact on those around her. Brea enjoys serving her class as senior vice president, singing in the Ovation Choir, and has been selected as a member of the National Honor Society.  She was recently honored by her peers as the 2013 Homecoming princess.
 Brea plans to attend college on a basketball scholarship and is looking at several colleges including Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California Baptist University in Riverside, Calif., and Azusa Pacific University, northeast of LA.
Breazer, we love you and we are so proud of the young woman that you have become!  We feel so blessed to be your parents!

Aubree Nielson is a senior in cross country this year. She loves to see her hard work pay off in the meets and have her times gradually get faster. Her favorite meet was the Murray meet. She picked this meet as her favorite because she liked having so many schools there and running with a mass of other girls with the same goal as her. The Murray meet is also where she achieved her personal best. Aubree loves the atmosphere and excitement that comes with race days. They have so much fun on the long memorable bus rides. She enjoys going on runs to clear her mind and get a breath of fresh air. 
In the off season she has participated in several 5k runs. She has also recently trained and participated in a half marathon. It has been a pleasure for her to train with great coaches and teammates in this lifelong sport of running.  Aubree says that cross country is truly a mental sport. It has helped her to realize how powerful the human mind is. She also says that having a positive attitude really makes the difference for her. One of her favorite quotes about running cross country is “More powerful than the will to win, is the courage to begin.”

Ashlee Earl is a perfect example of hard work and determination.  She started playing tennis the summer before her freshman year in high school and worked her way to a varsity position as a sophomore.   The past two years she has played first singles on the varsity team. Ashlee has a hard-to-return first serve resulting in several “aces” during her games.  She currently has  a winning record with only one loss in region matches. She is able to compete against girls who have years and years of training.  In addition, she has wins against both 4A and 5A schools including Alpine, Northridge, Wasatch, Layton, and Logan.  
Ashlee works hard to maintain good grades, loves doing things with friends, and is a great help with all our projects at home.  She is a friend to all and an example to those she associates with.  We wish her the best in her upcoming region and state matches. 
We are grateful to friends, community members and coaches alike who have helped in Ashlee’s success.  Thanks to those who have come to practice with her when the season was over.  Thanks to Shane Rappleye,  Nicole Grant, Joe Aimo, Coach Byhn, Coach Meyers, Coach Dietch, Coach Jake and Coach Mike.   Good luck next week! Love your family.

Molly Grace Adams is the oldest daughter of Dan and Wanda Adams.  She and her family moved to Morgan six years ago.  
Molly has been on the high school tennis team all four years.  She has learned a lot and enjoyed her teammates and coaches.  She is also on the track team and a member of the National Honor Society.  She enjoys piano and reading, and completed her first marathon this year.  
“Molly we are so proud of all you have accomplished and especially love what a great example you are to your brother and sisters!!! WE ALL LOVE YOU!!”
