The late Coach John Wooden once said "Sports do not build character, they reveal it." That's one of the reasons that Midland coaches do their best to teach players how to perform both on the field, and off the field. Midland fans and players are proud to be Mustangs, but are equally proud to be Midland.

If you would like to learn more about this year’s AcroFest program, you can view that by clicking here. Be sure to cheer for both our Midland and Union College teams!" says Pastor Anthony.

 Cross Country Team

The cross-country season begins on August 31, and we have 9 meets on the calendar for 2017. Our athletic department at Midland would like to encourage all students who are thinking about playing any sport--be it volleyball, basketball, or soccer--or if you just want to get into shape or build a good, healthy habit, to consider joining the cross country team. We want to have both a boys’ and girls’ team, and have a good strong showing at each event we attend.

Cross country is an excellent sport. It can be as competitive as you want it to be, and it will help you feel great and do better in school. Please see Coach Sickler or Cross-country coach Mr. Karr for more information.
