Bingham Wins 11th State Football Title

Bingham defeats East again to win inaugural 6A title, repeat as state champs By Trent Wood Published: Nov. 17, 2017 4:55 p.m.Updated: 9 hours ago   SALT LAKE CITY — When Bingham defensive back Dax Milne intercepted East quarterback Nick Harris with just under a minute remaining in Friday afternoon’s 6A title game between the Miners and the Leopards he collapsed on the turf at Rice-Eccles field out of sheer joy. The reason? He had ensured Bingham the state championship. A few seconds later and a kneel by Bingham quarterback Ryan Wood it was official, the Miners had defeated the Leopards 27-14 for their second straight title and the first ever 6A football title. The Miners were led by their power rushing attack, per the usual for the powerhouse program. Braedon Wissler and Amoni Kaili combined to rush for 77 yards and two touchdowns, while Wood chipped nine yards and a score. Wood also completed 4-of-5 passes for 99 yards. ...

2017 Cleaning and Whitewashing of the B

2017 Cleaning and Whitewashing of the B

2017 Cleaning and Whitewashing 0f the B On September 30, 2017 the annual cleaning and whitewashing of the B took place. Around 50 specially selected students were privileged to take part in this 90 year old Bingham tradition. After being briefed on the history of this Bingham landmark at the new Bingham High, the students rode a bus to Copperton where they visited the site of the Bingham High building located there from 1931 to 2002. They then were given a tour of the Copperton Concentrator by officials at Rio Tinto/Kennecott before riding to the B. A new feature of this year's whitewashing was the road that Kennecott constructed to the bottom of the block B. This new pathway zigzagged its way from the old Bingham and Garfield railroad bed (located several hundred feet below the base of the B) right up to the B itself. This made hiking a lot safer and whitewashing more convenient. After a truck carrying the cleaning materials parked right next to the B the students unloaded the ...

LET’S LIGHT THE B FOR ALL TO SEE

LET’S LIGHT THE B FOR ALL TO SEE

LET’S LIGHT THE B FOR ALL TO SEE The Bingham High School "B" has been a part of Salt Lake Valley's Oquirrh Mountains since 1927. It is located near the birthplace of Bingham High School in Bingham Canyon, Utah.  BHS students, alumni and friends of Bingham High have started a project to raise funds to purchase lights and wiring to light this important part of Utah history. It would be a part of future celebrations at Bingham High as all eyes could turn to the Jumbotron in the football stadium and watch as the proud B high on the Oquirrh Mountains lights up beaming yet another Bingham victory across the Salt Lake Valley. The owners of the land on which the "B" was built, Kennecott Rio Tinto, have agreed to continue to allow students to annually maintain the 100' by 80' monument. An access road was built for maintenance purposes. Kennecott/Rio Tinto has even agreed to install the conduit and lights and to provide power from the nearby concentrator facility. Over 40,000 students...

James Margetts (Class of 1985) and Robin Pilcher (Class of 1970) Hit Pay Dirt

Bingham High Pay Dirt Club 2017           A miner in the early days of Bingham Canyon, who struck it rich was said to have struck pay dirt.  Those miners would take a mule, shovel, pick and dynamite along with a drill bit and double jack and work hundreds of hours drilling, blasting and shoveling.  With a combination of hard work and little bit of luck a miner might find a rich vein of gold silver of copper ore.  This was “dirt” that paid him money or pay dirt.  Striking pay dirt symbolizes a successful miner.  Because of this, Bingham High School’s Hall of Fame is called the Pay Dirt Club.   Two successful Bingham Miners, James Margetts (Class of 1985) and Robin Pilcher (Class of 1970) were formally inducted into the Bingham High School Pay Dirt Club at the homecoming assembly on September 12, 2017.

Bingham’s Stetler, Westlake’s Christensen share pole vault state record

Bingham’s Stetler, Westlake’s Christensen share pole vault state record

Beky Beaton Special to The Tribune

Girls’ state track and field • Bingham’s Stetler, Westlake’s Christensen both clear record 12 feet; Stetler gets the win. Provo • Bingham freshman Hannah Stetler already traded state records in the pole vault with Westlake junior Adara Christensen earlier this year. The pair of friendly competitors train together on a club team run in the offseason by Miners coach Kody Pierce and cheered each other on throughout Friday’s competition at the state track and field meet. It was fitting then, and not a bit distressing to either of them, when they both cleared 12 feet on their third attempts, eclipsing the previous state record by a full 5 inches set just a couple of weeks ago by Christensen at the BYU Invitational. Stetler earned the gold medal because she had nailed every jump cleanly on her first attempt in the earlier rounds, while Christensen needed a few more tries, but she collected a hard-earned silver. Stetler just turned 15 and has been vaulting for only three years,...

Bingham’s Stetler builds on family’s legacy of greatness

Bingham’s Stetler builds on family’s legacy of greatness

Jon Clifford Special to The Tribune

Track and field a family passion for Hannah Stetler, whose siblings competed at Utah, BYU. South Jordan • It was at least part family obligation that led Bingham freshman Hannah Stetler to take up pole vaulting three years ago. Hannah’s sister Alyssa did the running — the 2-mile and 3,000 meters for the University of Utah — and brother Zach did the throwing — shot put, discus, hammer and javelin for BYU. “We have a track family,” Hannah said. “We had a runner and a thrower, and we needed a jumper.” She sort of completed the Stetler family track and field triple crown. Crown is an appropriate symbol, given her success for the Miners this season. Stetler, just a freshman, will be among the favorites this week at the Class 5A state track and field championships at BYU. She already set the girls state record with a jump of 11 feet, 6 inches, and she routinely clears 12 feet in practice. It’s more than genetics that has Stetler in position to dominate the sport that...
