Fall-II Sports Updates
MTRS soccer concluded their season last Wednesday as we saw five seniors play their last game. The season included many exciting moments and plays on the field, and as the team looks ahead to the Fall of 2021, they will return a solid group of promising young players that hope to continue traditions that this years graduating class worked so hard to establish and maintain during their time at MTRS!
Also last week junior Tyler Dubreuil was nominated for MassLive Athlete of the Week after an INCREDIBLE 4 goal performance against Franklin Tech on April 19! While it can be tough to compete with larger schools in the voting process this is a HUGE honor that other MTRS athletes have earned during this past school year and this winter including senior Taylor Loomis for Alpine Skiing and senior Dennis Simmons for Nordic Skiing!
