Department Philosophy
Competitiveness
MTHS student/athletes have never met a challenge they could not conquer.  They have proved that from our inception in the fall of 2004 and continue to prove it on a daily basis.  The competitive foundation has been set with the mind set that we can always get better each day.  The commitment displayed at practices, team meetings, video, strength & conditioning, and games is the proving ground for our student-athletes.  The “Never say die “attitude has become contagious for our MTHS student-athletes.
Academic Success
MTHS Student-Athletes have consistently performed at high level academically, averaging GPA’s above 3.0 every season since our inception in the fall of 2004.  MTHS student-athletes are held accountable by their peers, coaches and most importantly their own pride.  MTHS student-athletes take advantage of their resources such as school loop and open time in the PE/Athletic classroom.  They develop time management skills that allow them to be successful in the classroom, playing arenas, and other aspects of their lives.

High Character Individuals
MTHS Student-Athletes have established themselves as peer leaders on the MTHS Campus, as well as in the MTHS community, since our inception in fall 2004. They serve as role models to middle and elementary school age children and are respectful young men and women to their elders. The display integrity and dignity in times of adversity, and humility and class in times of success.
Multi-Sport Athletes
The MTHS Athletic Department believes in the multi-sport athlete.  We believe that the high school athlete should be of free will to participate in multiple sports which allows them to compete year round, develop skills that carry over from sport to sport and develop multiple relationships with other student-athletes from other sports. Student-athletes are also exposed to different coaching styles and challenged to learn new concepts.  At the same time, if a student-athlete decides to play only 1 sport, we are committed to provide off season opportunities that keep them focused and working towards goals.
Strength & Conditioning Program
The MTHS Athletic Department believes in strength training for all sports. The MTHS weight room is equipped with state of the art equipment and most importantly a strength coach that is certified and qualified to teach the proper techniques, mental outlook and programs that will benefit each Student-athlete in their unique pursuits.  The foundation is multi-joint exercises such as Olympic lifting that develops explosive power and speed for each student-athlete geared to their particular sport and/or time of season.
Unity
The MTHS Athletic Department staff is a collegiagial unit of coaches, administrators, and others who work on creating a positive environment of support for each other, the sports they represent and, of course, the student-athletes. The genuine camaraderie displayed by the staff sets an example for the student-athletes to follow and create the same bond among each other.
Crest
The MTHS Athletic Department works everyday to live up to the MTHS pillars of: Respect, Integrity, Confidence, and Community.  The MTHS Athletic Department works to help student-athletes refine and develop those qualities as well as display them in their everyday life.  “Building a future, finding a way.”  The MTHS motto comes to life in all of student-athletes everyday.
