Last week it was announced that our local Morgan AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) was the winner of the national ‘HerbaLife Wellness Challenge’. This means that one lucky AYSO team gets to pack their bags, shine up their shin-guards, and get ready for the soccer adventure of a lifetime in Honolulu, HI for seven days and six nights.
Ni How, Hola, and Bonjour! These greetings are becoming a regular part of life for many Utah children, as Morgan County residents found out last Thursday night when Gregg Roberts from the Utah State Office of Education visited Mountain Green Elementary. Mr. Roberts was asked to present the state’s dual immersion program to a gathering of interested residents.
A man who can wear many hats (or in this case many uniforms), Zane Gray is finally hanging up one of them. Over the last three years Zane has served as the Regional Commissioner for Morgan County American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO), but in June he will be retiring. AYSO serves approximately 550 of Morgan County’s finest youth soccer players, ranging from four to nineteen years of age. These players can be seen each weekend in the spring and fall on the fields of the Morgan North Stake Bowery and Kent Smith Park in Mountain Green. It is probably the largest athletic organization in the county, yet little has been said about the man who has lead these efforts with no remuneration for his work.
