Congratulations Fall Athletes!

Congratulations to our fall athletes on an outstanding season, and good luck to our Cross Country team as they pursue the Division 2 State Title!  We are very proud of our student athletes.  They have put in long hours of practice, competed hard and demonstrated sportsmanship in their pursuit of a winning season.

MERSD loves to celebrate a championship season, but more important than wins and losses are the lessons learned on the field of competition:  you have to work hard and practice to be the best you can be; you don’t always win the game, but you do always conduct yourself with dignity; and, even though you are an individual, you work as a team.  No matter what generation, athletics continues to be a major "player" in the development of the whole child.  It is competitive and accessible to all.  It doesn't matter the sport, the level or even the amount of "playing time."  The benefits to the development of the young adult far surpass athletic skill and game strategy.  Athletics fosters character development and leadership training. 

MERSD is very fortunate at to be able to offer 44 interscholastic teams at MERMHS.  From sailing to skiing, our program strives to provide our students with opportunities to compete at a variety of levels in a variety of sports.  These activities are key components of our comprehensive education program and complement the lessons we deliver in the classroom!

Go Hornets!
