Mirman Mustangs celebrate winter season, kick off spring sports
Our spring sports season got off to a strong start last week with our first track and field meet! But before we get too far into the spring season, we wanted to take our caps off to all the athletes who competed in a wonderful winter season this year.
We had a record-breaking number of teams this winter, with students in Room 4 through Upper School 4 participating in a variety of sports. Great job everyone! Athletics Director Angela Brown sat down to give us the highlights:
Room 4 Blue Boys Basketball
"The boys had a strong finish to their season, improving on their skills all season long. The effort they played on defense was fun to see and will help them for next year."
Room 4 Gray Boys Basketball
"This team played the most exciting game of the basketball season against CHIME. The game came down to the very last seconds and they lost by only two points. This game was against a team that went undefeated all season."
Room 5 Navy Boys Basketball
"The Room 5 Navy team showed a lot of improvement from their first game to the last, particularly offensively!"
Room 5 Royal Boys Basketball
"The team was undefeated with 7 wins under their belts! They've learned that teamwork is imperative. With hard work and attention to detail, they became the only undefeated team in basketball at Mirman this season."
Room 5 Silver Boys Basketball
"The Room 5 Silver team improved throughout the season, building on their defensive and offensive skill set. Despite facing some tough competition in their division, the boys persisted and played each game with grit."

However, in the short amount of time they had, they came out looking like true soccer players.They worked hard every practice to learn the rules of the game, ball control skills and how to effectively communicate."
