This Varsity volleyball season was an interesting one. It started out not knowing who the coach was going to be as the position was vacant at the time. That problem soon left when Mason County Central Principal Mr. Brad Jacobs decided to coach for a season. And soon following, his wife Mrs. Jacobs decided to coach the JV team. The season didn’t go exactly as they wanted it to, but they made key improvements as the season went on.  Four seniors are graduating, including Continue reading “Volleyball Team Set for a New Season”

This cross country season had an ending to remember, and many seniors with exciting plans for the future. The boys MCC Cross Country team came in 15th in the state finals. It wasn’t exactly what they wanted, but it is a great honor to have been that good in the entire state. Zac Wright-Fisher is going to pursue his dream of running cross country at the collegiate level. He came in 12th in the state. The girls team also went to regionals and came in fifth. Leta Larsen came in twelfth place, the highest for the girls team. This year was a good year for both teams, but Coach Sanders will take the results and make improvements in the years to come.

The varsity softball team at Mason County Central High School has had a rough season so far. With a mid-season coaching vacancy, Ed Sanders stepped up and took over the position with the team. When interviewed he said that he had always been a team player and knew enough about the sport to be a coach.  “My only regret is having to give up coaching 8th grade girls’ track. I feel like I let them down,” Sanders said.

The team is made up of 15 players, 9 seniors, 5 juniors, and 1 sophomore. Blake Bladzik, Cody Soberalski, Chance Iles, Jake Martin, Austin Tyndall, Jacob Edwards, Evan Robison, Connor Willick, Tyler Liske and Josh Petersen all can be outfielders when needed.

See Our Spirit Is Weakening


Crash right through that line of blue
Watch the points keep growing
Spartans teams are bound to win
They’re fighting with a vim
(Rah , Rah, Rah)
See that line is weakening
We’re going to win this game
Fight! Fight!
Come on, team, fight!
Victory for MCC! 

School Pride, something that every school seems to have. “Once a Spartan, always a Spartan”.  Over the years, the school spirit at MCC has seemed to fizzle out. Year after year, students come and go, and the school slowly loses its spark and its spirit. How has it changed? What can be done? After conducting some interviews with both the seniors and teachers at MCC, here are some answers. Continue reading “See Our Spirit Is Weakening”
