Athletics, Activities and Clubs

MVHS Football Season Wrap Up

The JV unfortunately finished the season on quarantine, but the Varsity had two fantastic wins to complete their season. First, they showed their dominance against Thompson Valley on Monday, November 16th 42-6. What a fun win against a district rival on Senior Night!

Their final game was Saturday, November 21st at Ray Patterson Field. Mountain View held to a close game against Silver Creek, completing a two-point conversion in the 4th quarter to come back from a 14-21 deficit, to beat the Raptors 22-21!! Way to go Lions! These games exemplify the attitude and effort that makes Mountain View Football so special.

Finally, if you haven't heard, Bart Mayes, head coach of 15 years (assistant since the start of the school) announced his retirement from the head coaching position prior to the Silver Creek Game. Check out this Reporter Herald article to hear more about the legacy Bart has left with this program. We are so proud of you and grateful for your investment in young athletes!
