On Wednesday, February 3, 2021, the MMHS Ellevés competed in the State 5A Semi Finals Drill Team Competition held at UVU.  A total of 18 drill teams from schools in the 5A division competed to be one of the top 8 teams that would advance to the finals. The Ellevés made the top 8 and were going on to compete in the finals.

On Thursday, February 4, 2021, the Ellevés competed in the finals and placed 6th in the military category, 6th in the dance category and 6th in the show category.  Overall, Maple Mountain placed 6th.

Maple Mountain was named the 5A Academic Drill Team Champions for having a team GPA of 3.84.

Ella Conners, daughter of Chris and Amy Conners; Julia Dall, daughter of Colleen Ferrier and Matt Dall; and Cheyenne Ortiz, daughter of Ryan and Amy Ortiz were recognized for being named members of the 5A All State Dance/Drill Team.  Each 5A team sent three girls to learn a routine that they auditioned in front of judges and then 18 girls were selected as the All-State Dance Team. They received a certificate and medal at State.

The Ellevés would like to thank all the parents, administration, and fans who came to State. We really appreciate all of your support this year!
