The Mystic Valley Athletics program has opened its new facility in fine fashion. The volleyball, swim, boys varsity basketball and girls varsity basketball teams all posted wins in their first game at their new home.
The volleyball team started the streak with a thrilling win. The team had not won a match in nearly two years but rose to the occasion to beat Northeast three sets to two. After the win the team went on to win the rest of their games finishing the year with a three game win streak.
Next up was the swim team who were opening their season against a very strong team from Nashua New Hampshire that finished second in the state last year. Not to be deterred the team came through with a razor thin 87-83 victory, the 34th straight for the team.
The boys’ basketball team faced a Lynn Tech team that was 87-13 over their last 100 games heading into the opener. Once again the Mystic Valley team brought their “A” game to the new facility and dispatched the visitors by 16 points.
The girls’ varsity basketball team completed the cycle by beating Fellowship Christian by a convincing margin led by freshman Jessica Phinney who had 26 points. She was also the girl who made the first serve on the new court for the volleyball team that started the opening game win streak.
