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.

October 2022 - The Annual Union College Fall volleyball tournament has finished, with Forest Lake and Hinsdale taking first place in the Thunderdome and Clocktower divisions.
Games began on Thursday morning, October 20, and our girls varsity volleyball team went head to head with other Adventist high schools from around the country. Thursday games were "pool play"; the results of the first three games placed Midland in the Thunderdome tournament for the rest of the tournament, where they finished fifth.
October 2022 - Big congrats to our Middle School volleyball team for an UNDEFEATED season! The girls put a cap on their season with a 2-0 win over Metro in their final game, ending the season with a 13-0 record. During the season, the team went 27-3 in matches played, winning by an average score of 25-17.
A hearty well done to the team and to their coaches!
February 2022 - Basketball teams from high schools around the country gathered at Union College February 16-20 for the annual Union College Spring Tournament.
Pool play games were held on Wednesday and Thursday to determine seeding in either the red or gold tournament—both of which were played during the day Friday and continued on Saturday night.
It was a most excellent tournament for the Mustangs, with the girls team bringing home the third place trophy, and the guys team winning the tournament outright with a 56-44 win over Andrews.
November 2020 - Instead of their normal Volleyball and Soccer fall tournament, Union College presented a virtual tournament this year.
Points could be earned by submitting videos, watching and commenting on specific Union team videos, and by placing 1st/2nd/3rd in any of the various competitions.
Our own Jenna Gibson won first place in the tournament, racking up a nice batch of prizes including a $500 Union scholarship, dinner for the entire Lady Mustangs team, and $500 for our athletics department!
Nice work, Jenna!
