Bingham High
Bingham High's First School Year 1908-1909

September 9, 2020 marks the 112th birthday for Bingham High School. Bingham High first opened its doors on September 9, 1908. As Bingham Miner Alumni, we can all celebrate the beginning of our alma mater in the narrow confines of Bingham Canyon in the upstairs room of the town's community center known as Canyon Hall. Since that first year in the City of Bingham's Canyon Hall, Bingham High has had five different locations: three in Bingham Canyon (1908-1931), one in Copperton (1931-1975) and the current location in South Jordan (1975-2020). Although it may be difficult for some to believe, as of 2020, Bingham High School's South Jordan campus surpassed the 44 years Bingham High was located in Copperton.   The following is a summary of the first school year of 1908-1909 at Bingham High. We have certainly come a long way since then. For more information on Bingham High's history see Bingham High School--The First Hundred Years (1908-2008) by Scott Crump.     ...

Lady Miners' Basketball Team Claims Repeat 6A State Title

High school girls basketball: Bingham rallies past No. 1 Fremont to claim repeat 6A state title Bingham made 9 of 14 3-pointers to overcome a 10-point first half deficit on its way to state championship By James [email protected]  Feb 29, 2020, 9:20pm SALT LAKE CITY — Fremont has gotten the better of Bingham in the regular season each of the past two years, but when it has mattered most in the playoffs, the Miners have proven superior in the clutch. A year after bouncing tournament-favorites Fremont in the semifinals, Bingham got the better of No. 1 seed Fremont again on Saturday night in the 6A championship, pulling away late for the 59-51 victory and a repeat state title. On Saturday morning, Bingham watched film of its 27-point loss to Fremont back in December, and coach Charron Mason said her players’ reactions to a simple question reassured her that they were ready for the tough challenge. “I asked the girls, what have we improved since then,...

Minerettes Win 2020 State Title
Minerettes Win 2020 State Title

Deseret News February 2, 2020 OREM — Bingham captured its first drill team state title since 2012 at the 6A state championships at UVU on Saturday, and in the process halted Copper Hills’ seven-year reign atop the state’s largest classification. Bingham finished first in the military and dance categories, and fourth in character to secure the eighth state title in school history. Herriman finished second in the team standings, followed by Layton in third. “Competition at this level comes with a lot of pressure and intensity. These girls fought through challenges, injuries, sickness, and always kept going no matter what. So much blood, sweat and tears goes into every single day of practice when you’re striving to win. As their coach, I couldn’t be more proud of them for pushing to be better every day and never giving up. Watching them be unified as a team, overcome struggles and become stronger dancers and people was indescribable. Winning a state title was the cherry...
