What does it take t be a Mountain League All-Star?

Determination. Hard work. Dedication to your sport. Leadership.

A total of eight Tyrone athletes from girls basketball, boys basketball, and swimming demonstrated those qualities and earned their invite to the 2014-2015 Mountain League All-Star Banquet on Monday March 16, 2015 here at the high school.

“It was nice to have three girls and three boys recognized as Mountain League All-Stars.  I also believe this is the first year in awhile that we have had swimmers attend the banquet. It was just overall a really nice banquet and it was very well represented for Tyrone for the winter sports,” explained Tyrone girls basketball coach and athletic director Luke Rhoades.

In addition to being named to the All-Star team, Tyrone sophomore Kasey Engle also was named as the Mountain League MVP for girls basketball.
