Computer Science at MHS

Thanks to MHS Sophomore Kyla Miller for sharing the paragraph below about a field trip to MIT this week.

Students in the MHS computer science program took a field trip to MIT to attend the UAT High School Conference on Tuesday, April 5. MHS students watched MIT students perform short 10 minute Ted-Talk like presentations on computer and electrical engineering. A fan favorite among students was the “How Bees Can Teach Us About Optimization” presentation which taught students how to optimize resource distribution problems using honeybees. Another favorite was the “Cake Cutting for Selfish People” presentation with the basic principles of “I cut, You choose” which talked about game theory and how to be the ultimate peacemaker within society. Overall the students had a great time visiting MIT and engaging with over 60 presentations.

MHS Athletics

Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak in March 2020, we awarded two students a Student-Athlete of the Month Award. I am happy to announce we are bringing that back. We have two very worthy sophomore winners for February/March!

Lila Chamoun, Sophomore, Girls’ Hockey

  • The girls varsity hockey team won four games in the month of February, with Lila Chamoun leading the way in goal. She recorded 3 shutouts (2-0 against Wakefield, 1-0 against Newton, 2-0 against Weymouth) and also had a 2-1 victory over Walpole in overtime. She made 8 total starts during the month of February, facing 257 shots on net with a .930 save percentage. In three of the eight games, she had 40+ saves. Lila was named Bay State Conference All Star as a Sophomore!

Mason Pellegri, Sophomore, Wrestling

  • Mason finished 34-3 in the regular season. Teams would constantly game plan to avoid Mason on the mat. He finished as the D2 Central Sectional Champion and then went on to win the Division II State Championship! He is Milton’s First State Champion since 2000! Mason also finished 3rd at All-States the following weekend and was named the MVP of the Herget Division in the Bay State Conference!. “Mason is a leader, works incredibly hard, a great teammate and ambassador to the sport. A pleasure to coach and to be around and an honor roll student” – Coach Carroll.

More congrats are in order for our Winter Bay State Conference All-Stars!

  • Track: Mia Jilani, Sophomore;
  • Hockey: Lila Chamoun, Sophomore; Ryan Dexter, Senior; Joe Pender, Senior; Jimmy Fallon, Junior
  • Wrestling: Mason Pellegri, Sophomore – MVP; Alex Paxhia, Senior

Cheer and Ski will be announced when they are released.

Our Spring Season is fully underway and we have had a great start! Girls Lacrosse is 2-0 after beating Brookline and Fontbonne on Monday and Tuesday! Boys Lacrosse started their season on the road against Boston Latin School, picking up a 9-5 win! Baseball lost a tight game to Austin Prep 1-0, with some excellent pitching on display from two of the best high school pitchers in the State. Boys Tennis beat Dedham and Weymouth to start their season 2-0 as well. Check out our Twitter (@MHS_Wildcats_) for updates and the Athletics website for any and all information!

Katie's Grace & Grit 5k

On May 14 at 10 am, the Glover PTO invites the entire Milton community to a new road race, Katie’s Grace+Grit 5K. Katie Crowell was a dedicated member of our Milton community who gave 100% of herself in service to others. She was an advocate, a runner, a volunteer, a fundraiser, a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. This amazing woman was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer (MBC) in 2015 while 32 weeks pregnant.

Katie’s impact surrounds us all—in her beautiful children, in her advocacy, in the lives of other patients who have gained strength from her, in the innovative research that is currently happening thanks in part to the money that she raised. Her impact and contributions will continue to inspire an untold number of future runners. Please join us in a very special 5k so we may honor Katie and continue raising funds to support cancer charities. Come show us your Grace + GRIT! All details and registration info can be found at this link.
