IT'S TIME FOR FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS!!
We are looking forward to a wonderful football and sideline spirit season this fall! MVHS will host the first home varsity football game at Ray Patterson Stadium against Fort Morgan on Friday, October 9th at 7:00pm.

Due to spectator limitations and contact tracing, no passes, golden passes, TSD badges, etc. will be allowed as a form of admittance to these games. Limited tickets will be made available for purchase the week of home games and you must have a ticket to attend.

For any guest not able to attend the event, a live stream of the game will be available through the NFHS website and the link is located on the Mountain View Athletics website in the Live Stream section. A membership is required to view the live stream, but this membership gives you access to view any event streamed to the NFHS Network. We will continue to use this streaming service for basketball, volleyball, and wrestling at MVHS.
