On the morning of August 14, 2023, the doors of Malad High School were opened for the first time after summer break. The members of the Malad High Student Council were at the school bright and early, with big smiles and welcoming faces, ready to start off the new school year. New students could be seen receiving tours from Katie Coatney, and from the registration table, Drake Morrison made sure that all the students knew what they needed to accomplish that day. Music played from the speakers, creating a fun and welcoming environment for students to register in. Students both new and old picked up their new schedules, took their school pictures, and even paid for clubs and sports that they would be joining this year. In the words of our Senior Class President and Journalism Editor, Karlee Palmer, “Registration went smoothly, we saw the faces of new students and are excited to welcome them into our school this year. We are so excited for the 2023 to 2024 school year!” In agreement with Karlee, we, here in the Journalism Department of Malad High School, are also enthusiastic about the exciting new school year!

Malad High School is welcoming a new up-and-coming sports club, Pickleball! Pickleball is slowly making its way toward popularity, and it has now reached the attention of Malad High School students. This club is a senior project for Curtis Huckaby. It is currently being held during lunches in the high school gym. Curtis Huckaby says, “Eventually we want to be having practices after school and maybe Friday morning at the new pickleball courts.” He hopes that this club will last as long as people are interested. He encourages students at Malad High to join. Equipment is provided but bringing personal equipment is strongly encouraged.

Hello Dragon Fans, we are very excited to give an inside scoop on our Lady Dragon Volleyball players! They recently played their first games against the Declo Hornets. Varsity was able to grab the win after putting up a good fight. Adley Kimberling, a senior on Varsity said that Declo was “pretty good” and that “ we had to play toward the last set we were down 20-24 and came back and won 26-24.” Junior Varsity also triumphed, the final score being 19-25. Within those last few points were the valuable serves of Mikell Keetch. The volleyball teams also had the opportunity to take their team pictures. Even though the wind was blowing they all looked amazing! Special thanks to Crystal Kimberling! We are also excited to announce two games this week! The first will be on Tuesday the 29th against Marsh Valley and a home game against Mountain Crest on Thursday the 31st. Come support our Dragons!
