Athletics at MSSM
Joining an athletic team at MSSM is a great way to make new friends, get some stress-relieving exercise, and work with your teammates and coaches toward a common goal.
Each sport has a unique schedule within the season and requires a different level of time commitment, sometimes including school breaks.
Balancing athletics and academics at MSSM can be a challenge for students, but it is also very rewarding. It’s always a good idea to consult with your academic advisor and consider your course load before committing to a sport.

Although Sunday, October 25th, was cold with a breeze, there was no rain and MSSM White vs. Blue was able to battle it out. It was a good game with many shots taken and most blocked by keepers Myles Benica & Benji Gilman. Only a few shots made it through and the final score was 3-1 Blue.
MSSM played most of an intramural soccer game on Thursday, Oct 1st, until distant lightning stopped the game near the end.
Today MSSM had a Pumpkin 5K Color Run. It was perfect weather for running, but a bit windy for the color parts. Seven runners participated and ran around the campus.
On Saturday, September 19th, MSSM played their biggest rival in Co-Ed Intramural Soccer. The blue and white teams were evenly matched. The blue team was victorious with a 2-0 final score. Connor and Griffin scored the two goals.
Congratulations Dolcie Tanguay, who earned the honor of State Champion in today's Maine Class C Classical Championships.
On a warm Tuesday at the start of February all the surrounding schools traveled to Caribou High School for a 5k classic race. All the skiers went through the race with all their might and finished. For the ladies, Dolcie Tanguay finished 1st with a time of 17:47.5. Lydian Frost was next in for MSSM in 16th and then Brice Carson in 22nd. Evyn Lally was next in 26th and Maddie McCarthy in 31st.
On a cool Tuesday in Madawaska, Aroostook County schools all traveled to Madawaska for a Skate sprint race. A sprint race is shorter than a normal race being only 1.3k instead of the normal 4 to 5k. There were three rounds of races for both boys and girls.
On an extremely cold Martin Luther King Monday in Fort Kent all the Aroostook county schools traveled Fort Kent for a 4k Nordic classic race followed by a 4k freestyle race. The trails were freshly groomed and in perfect condition to be skied on. The ladies started the classic race later than expected and ended with Dolcie Tanguay finishing second and Shelby Carson finishing 18th. Maddie McCarthy finished 21st with Evyn Lally and Lydian Frost finishing 26th and 27th.
On January 7, 2020 MSSM boys and girls competed in the Ski Meet at the Nordic Heritage Center in Presque Isle. In the girls race, our own Dolcie Tanguay came in first place with Madison McCarthy being the next MSSM finisher coming in 23rd place. Shelby Carson came in 25th place and Evyn Lally was in 30th place. Great effort ladies!
