Well, it's been a long long time since I've seen the Mountain Time Blog but I thought I would reconnect and let everyone in on what's been happening sports wise here at MTA. The alpine and Nordic teams had an extremely strong showing at the MVC races this week. The teams took a combined first place. An excellent job by all of our athletes. The two teams will compete next week for the state title at Black Mountain.
Our boys basketball team played a preliminary round against Old Orchard Beach. It was a hard fought battle but the boys were defeated in the end. However, this was one of the best boys basketball seasons in recent history. I've watched a number of games and have been pumped to see them do well.
The ladies are off to the tournament in Augusta on Tuesday at 4pm against Madison. They defeated Traip Academy at home to move ahead. It's been a bittersweet season for the ladies as Tuesday night was the last home game of Coach Lisherness' career. There is a great article in today's Sun Journal in regards to Coach Lisherness' legacy here at MTA.
I wish all of teams competing next week the best of luck, represent us well!
