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.

After sectionals we just want to play as well as we can to move on to the next game, one at a time.”

Skiing, Dancing, and More at La Lumiere


Ski Trip

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.

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...
