MHS recently celebrated its fall athletes, who saw many successes on and off the courts, trails, and playing fields during the 2017 season.
The all-school event was held in Centennial Hall, with Athletic Association co-Heads Merriam Lrhazi ’19 and Aysha Vadukul ’19 beginning by recognizing participants in dance, afternoon fitness, racquet sports, yoga, recreational golf, and the fall play. Students who participate in off-campus activities such as dance and ballet, were also applauded.
