Winter at MPS is marked by one constant – the sound of basketballs bouncing in the gym. The boys basketball program has been one of the most respected in the entire area for many years and this year’s team will not disappoint. Led by Coach Sean Baer, an alum and current teacher at MPS, the young men will once again thrill the fans with an intense and fun brand of basketball that helped MPS garner a run into the PIAA playoffs last season. Only the strong survive in this sport and if you have that winning attitude and desire to play hard every minute of every game, this is the place for you.
