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.

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!
