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.

In the midst of the crazy winter weather, La Lumiere students huddled up and hit the road for the annual ski trip. This year about 30 students and four faculty members hit the slopes at Granite Peak Ski Area in Wausau, Wisconsin.

He decided to extend the trip a day and move the location to Wisconsin.
On the morning of February 1, the skiers loaded up the buses and headed out. After a day of driving, the Lakers put on their gear and hit the slopes. Despite the frigid temperatures on Friday night, students skied and snowboarded the night away, making memories with peers. After getting a good night’s rest in a local hotel, they once again hit the...
