In the world of MCHS sports, tennis , track and field, and baseball are in full swing right now and the Mustangs have been performing very well across all bases. Spring sports open up many opportunities to enjoy a nice time outside watching a game in what is hopefully warm weather. It’s great to get out and support the athletes who are working so hard this season to represent our school and bring home those wins.


Mustangs Women’s Track and Field has already broken a few school records this year, with Peyton Newberry’s shot put at 36’ and discus at 122’. Meghan Adams broke another record with a 31’ 11” triple jump, and Claren Lowery’s 4’ 10” high jump also was a record high. In addition to these, Maggie Aydt’s 1600m run in 5:35.10 and Lizzie Levinson’s 100m hurdles in 15.74 seconds are new records to beat.


The baseball and softball teams have been doing great this year, with our varsity baseball team currently at 14-5 and our softball team at 10-6. The baseball and softball games are a great way to get outside and have some fresh air, good food, and support our school. A touching moment after last Friday’s softball game saw Marshall and McCracken releasing blue and orange balloons in solidarity, showing that sports rivalry does not have to be carried off the field.


Our Mustangs Tennis team won the rotary tournament in Chattanooga, and has gone undefeated in the region so far. They’ve been traveling every weekend for the past two months to win and represent our school properly.


Our Mustang athletic department is doing very well this year and we will all look forward to seeing how many trophies are brought home in the next couple of months. Spring is here and with the sun out and the weather finally warming up, there’s no better time to get out and support our very talented and hardworking athletes.
