Athletic Department:

  • Congratulations to Monica Furness and Brett Birt-Lundrigan for being named PEISAA Basketball All Stars. Also congratulations to Jagger Acorn who was named as an alternate to the All-Star team.
  • The MRHS Female Athlete of the week for the week of the PEISAA Basketball Playoff is Monica Furness of Vernon Bridge. Monica is a Grade Twelve student. Her steady defense along with her offense threat makes her a valuable two way player. Also her dedication to sacrifice her body for the good of her team is one of the reasons the team did so well this year.
