Recently the high school girls team won their first meet title in decades and now they just won their second in a row at the Eddyville cross country meet. What was the emotional rollercoaster all about you may ask? Well, Albia was announced the meet champions. Upon further review/ investigation/ known fact, it turned out that they had omitted one of the scoring runners from the Bravettes line up. After a little delay, the team was able to celebrate with another well-earned tr
Coming into the big homecoming game, it was already known that this would be a battle. Two tough teams. The score was close throughout the first half, then Montezuma took a big lead and tried new strategy than used to, the score got close again and the Braves were able to still get the “W”. Towards the end of the game, Montezuma coaches tried to run the clock and have the boys make some longer passes work. This isn’t how they were used to playing, but it was a learning experi
At the English Valleys cross country meet, the MXC high school girls team definitely turned back time for homecoming week. They won their first meet as a team in the first time in 30 years!

“If I could turn back ti-ime“...I’d record the whole Montezuma Lip Sync so that I could rewatch it over and over again. The students (and parents) of MHS entertained all that came to the north gym on Tuesday with their talent. Run by the student council, there were jokes told, snacks eaten, dancing, and lots of crazy costumes. Participants included a performance by the senior moms (and a couple dads), the homecoming court, yearbook staff, athletic groups, class groups, and...
