MTRS Athletes & Sports Fans!

Welcome to our new weekly newsletter to keep you connected to Mohawk Trail Regional School sports, important news, and updates! In this debut edition, I'll share information about how to register for spring sports; recap the Fall-II season; share photos and clips and MORE!


At Mohawk Trail Regional, our athletes, coaches, and fans are:


Respectful

Responsible

Engaged

Accountable

Role Models


These five key qualities are the pillars of our athletics program and something we're especially proud of at MTRS. In the upcoming weeks, I'll be sharing more ways in which our community can help with planning for the future of MTRS athletics through a community feedback group. The group will consist of student, staff, parent, and community representatives who will help provide valuable feedback, insight, and strategic planning for our programs.


I'm excited to use this platform to share all-things MTRS athletics. If you have any suggestions or submissions for a future update, please don't hesitate to reach out to me!

Fall-II Sports Highlights

Soccer

We last saw our boys soccer team in action during the Fall 2019 season when they made a Western-Mass Tournament playoff run, which included an incredible overtime shootout victory on the road at McCann Tech. Our Fall-II season picked-up right where the team left off, with an exciting 5-0 home shutout against Athol to open the season and a 3-1 win last Tuesday (April 6) vs Greenfield.


The team will celebrate senior day on Tuesday April 13th at MTRS at 4:00 PM

Indoor Track

Congrats to our Indoor Track team for a GREAT start to their season! Due to the COVID-19 safety protocols in place this season, the team has been running their meets outside during the Fall-II season. The team picked up wins for both the boys' and girls' teams at their first Tri-Meet held at Hampshire Regional on March 31.


Looking ahead this week, the team is AWAY this Friday, April 16 versus Hampden Charter and Southwick. This meet will conclude the indoor season; however we'll see a quick turnaround with the spring track season slated to begin at the end of this month.

Football

Our new football co-op between Greenfield High School, Mohawk Trail, and Turners Falls at Greenfield is off to an excellent start! Team practices throughout the fall helped to create a strong sense of community and camaraderie among the players, which has led to season opening shutouts to begin the Fall-II season versus Mahar (12-0) and Frontier (14-0).


This week, the team travels to Athol on Friday, April 16 before concluding the season on Friday, April 23 home (Greenfield) versus Franklin Tech.


A big shout-out and thank you to all who helped to make this co-op possible and to Greenfield for graciously hosting! We're excited to see our students on the field doing what they love!

Volleyball

The MTRS volleyball team is also having an exciting Fall-II season! They kicked-it off with a bang, picking-up consecutive wins agains Pioneer and upending Athol in five sets on March 31.


You can catch the team in action for their final home volleyball game on Wednesday (April 14) at 4 PM on our Vimeo channel as they square off against Franklin Tech in their final home game of the season. Tune-in and cheer them on right from the comfort of your couch!


If you've missed catching any of our live streams of the home games, you can always watch them again at www.vimeo.com/mtrsd. Be sure to check out the Athletics channel there!

Senior Night Celebrations

It's hard to believe we're at that point in the year where we're counting down to the final days for our Class of 2021 athletes. We say this every year about our students, but it's always hard to say farewell to such an incredible group!
