Bear Lake teen plays for three schools

Spalding plays for Onekama, Bear Lake, Brethren

BEAR LAKE (AP) — Patrick Spalding doesn’t wear his varsity jacket much.

It’s not that he doesn’t have reason to — the Bear Lake junior plays four different sports.

However, it would likely raise a few eyebrows and force Spalding into answering a number of reasonable questions about the different letters on his colorful coat.

The red and white “BL” is for Bear Lake.

The dark blue and yellow “O” is for Onekama.

The light blue and white “B” is for Brethren.

How many schools has Spalding attended, anyway?

Actually, the same one since kindergarten.

It seems confusing, but is actually quite simple.

He runs cross country for Bear Lake in the fall and plays basketball for the Lakers in the winter. In the spring, Spalding does double duty, playing golf for Brethren while competing in track and field for Onekama, both of which co-op with Bear Lake.
