Alta High School is known for their class, integrity, and the crazy school spirit from the student body. Whenever there is a sporting event, you can guarantee that the M.A.S.S. will show up and fire up the crowd. Especially when faced against their rival school
On October 19, 2016 the Alta Hawks faced the Corner Canyon Chargers on Corner Canyon's homefront, and although the game ended in a loss for the Hawks the student section couldn't have been better. The night before the game, the Corner Canyon student section decided to burn the Alta flag and football jerseys in order to try to defeat school spirit. However, it did the opposite. Students showed up as early as 3:00 pm before the football game to show their support for the football team.
Students went crazy with facepaint, white clothes, and trumpets in order to make their voices heard. (Photos above credited to @elle.tracyy and @zmoney_2035 on Instagram) Isaac Johnson even pierced himself before the game started and got the crowd going wild. Although Corner Canyon burned things before the night before the game, the Alta flag was in the student section held by Riley Wooden to unite the crowd.

But the excitement didn't end after the assembly, and continued on to that night for the Homecoming Pageant. Josh Davis, Megan Bain, Hailey Tuttle, Dallan Ashdown, Sadie Mertlich, and Vinny were the runners up for the Homecoming Royalty.

Thursday Students came together to the football field at 6:00 to watch the parade consisting of the clubs available at Alta High School. After that concluded, students engaged in a series of games against the different classes, and ended the night with fireworks and the annual tradition of the burning of the A.
