Athletics

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.

GPAC Champions!

Congrats to our Guys Varsity for their championship win Monday night in the GPAC Tournament. The Mustangs finished up a successful 19-3 season with a hard-fought 59-53 win over Christ Prep to claim the tournament title.

Midland got out to a 13-point lead in the third quarter thanks to several critical three-pointers, then held on to finish the victory in style. More than 100 Midland fans filled "our" half of the gym, and the chants of MAA! MAA! rang throughout the game.

Junior Michael Henry was named the tournament MVP, and took the time to put on his Midland Basketball shirt for pictures - way to wear the Mustang!
