The girls volleyball team hosted William Monroe High School last Thursday. The Mason team continues to see support from fans, whom they impressed by their 3-1 win. The win showcases an improved Mason team, as the girls lost 3-0 against William Monroe earlier in the season. Junior Dana Sembera beat the single game record with 30 digs during the game. On Tuesday, Mason traveled to Central High School and defeated the team 3-2 to earn its 11th win of the season. Mason will host Strasburg High School Thursday and then travel to Madison County High School next Tuesday.
The boys and girls cross country teams competed at a meet at Central High School last Wednesday and participated in the Octoberfest Invitational at Great Meadow last Saturday. The girls team placed second at the Central meet. The girls team placed 15th out of 38 schools at Octoberfest, in competition which pitted the single-A team against teams from double- and triple-A schools. The JV girls team came in second place at Octoberfest. The varsity boys cross country team came in first at Central, and 15th at Octoberfest. “Overall, Varsity A and Varsity B boys were very competitive in the race,” junior Truman Custer said. The boys and girls teams competed Wednesday at Madison County High School, but results were not available at press time. The teams will run in the Glory Days Invitational on Saturday.
Last Saturday, Mason competed in the Central Cheer Invitational. The cheer team had a nice turnout of fans, which energized the squad for competition. Of particular pride to the team was beating the squad from Strasburg High School. “I was really excited we beat Strasburg and happy that we set clear goals for what we can improve on for districts,” junior Courtney King said. The Mason team will compete in the District Cheer Championships on Oct. 27.
