Blazer Ball and More at MQTT


What’s coming up

With the end of winter in sight, this means one thing for MQTT: the state tournament for basketball. The Blazers are focused on success, ready to take on any team.

“As the season moves forward, our goal is to win sectionals and to keep the streak alive,” said team member Jake Tarnow. “I believe that we can do it if we play our style of basketball and as a team. After sectionals we just want to play as well as we can to move on to the next game, one at a time.”

In past years, the ski trip had been a day trip to Bittersweet Ski Area, but Mr. Chad Perney, the organizer of the trip, decided that he wanted to give students a little more time skiing. He decided to extend the trip a day and move the location to Wisconsin.
