Happenings on the Hill

MHBS 5-12 Communications/February 19, 2016

See You in Hanceville!

In an exciting night of Panther and Lady Panther Basketball Tuesday night, both teams defeated talented Cold Springs teams to advance to the Regional Tournament in Hanceville. The Lady Panthers will face Phil Campbell tonight (Feb. 19) at 6 p.m. at Wallace State followed by the Panthers tipping off against Phil Campbell at 7:30 p.m. Support our teams and show your Panther spirit. We'll see you there!

Congratulations to 2A Area 16 Champs, our Panthers!

With an exciting victory over Tharptown last Friday night, the Panthers became the 2A Area 16 Champions. Congratulations, Coach Mitchell and the Varsity Boys!


Mars Hill Fun Fact: This is the first year since 2012 that both varsity girls and boys brought the area championship title home to Mars Hill. (See last week's "Happenings" for a team picture of the girls' team.)
