The MHS Varsity Cheer Team kicked off their season with a great week at the National Cheerleaders Association camp in Honesdale, PA! The team worked hard learning new material, stunts and pyramids, all while bonding with their new teammates. The culmination of camp happened on the final day, where the team placed 2nd in the Varsity Jam competition. They were given Technical Excellence Awards in stunting and tumbling, as well as spirit sticks each night of camp. 9 athletes were nominated to try out for All American (Seniors Rachel Bower, Noelle Emerson, Gianna Kavash, Jorja Rembert, Aubrie Wells, Sophomores Carmela Peta, Marin Wells and Freshmen Sarah Miller and Kayla Watson) and three were chosen for the NCA All American Team (Rachel B, Gianna K, Jorja R). Three seniors, Gianna Kavash, Jorja Rembert and Aubrie Wells, were "apped" to join the NCA staff as graduates, a testament to their skills and leadership. Lastly, the team was NFHS Credentialed and earned a bid to NCA HS Nationals in Dallas, TX. What an amazing start to the season!

Girls Cross Country

The Girls X-C Team completed a very busy but successful first week. There was a timed 20-minute run on the track to establish fitness, two timed miles on the track, a recovery run, and learning the skills needed to be prepared for a race or meet.

The Team competed at the Ivyland 5K on Saturday 8/19 and did very well. The Team won the Team competition and the award was a pie. Sr Molly Thomas was first in her age category, and the award was a pie. She was also the overall first women finisher, and that award was a bottle of maple syrup because there was an all you can eat pancake breakfast with the race. An added positive to this event was Fr Ashley Hermus finished second in her age category, and that award was an engraved spatula. The Team finished the week on Sunday with its biggest fundraiser, a car wash on Ridge Pike. Now, we are off to week two...

Upcoming Events:

-Friday 8/25 - Scrimmage Meet, 2 Miler @ SpringFord HS (AWAY)

Field Hockey

Field hockey has successfully completed the first week of the season. The team spent time brushing up on skills and working on improving their speed, agility and conditioning with our strength and conditioning coach, Da'Rel Scott. On Saturday, the team hosted their third annual Warriors Play Day where five other teams from around the area came to kick off the season. The varsity team went 3-1-1 on the day and JV went 2-1-2.

Both teams also took some time to select their team captains for the season. Congratulations to varsity captains Lily DeWan, Renee Blake, and Carmela Maro, and JV captains Alyssa Sardo and Nicole Walsh.

This week, the team has another week of practice planned. The week finishes up with the second scrimmage of the season against Notre Dame on Friday at home; JV plays at 2:00 pm and varsity plays at 3:30 pm.

Our scrimmage on Saturday 8/19 vs. Lower Merion was as we expected. We had a chance to see what “Live” contact is. We had a few players show us that they can play varsity football after being on our JV team last year.

We learned a lot at the scrimmage. Offensively we have to control the ball and limit our mistakes. We have to focus on what we do - and do it well. Defensively we can not allow the big plays and get the ball back to our Offense. WE need to excel at Special Teams - we have to create plays and be explosive

This week we will face Pottsgrove. They are well coached and are a very physical team. We have to match the physical play in all phases.

We had a few standout players this past week. Kolby Howarth, Nick Remish, Dylan Pahick, DJ Balinger and Collin O’Neill have emerged as our leaders. They continue to work hard in practice and never make excuses.

Upcoming Events:

-Friday 8/25 - Game vs. Pottsgrove (HOME)
