MMS wrestlers help make holiday spirits bright

Consider it the equivalent of saving the best for last.

Some select members of Mooresville Middle School’s wrestling team came through with sparkling performances to help make the Red Imps’ spirits bright.

A total of six members of the Imps roster all filling different weight classes emerged with their respective title belts securely in tow, combining their respective efforts in the process to also enable Mooresville Middle to merit a half-share of the Rowan Iredell Middle School Conference’s postseason tournament championship crown.

The Red Imps fashioned an outright runner-up finish during the course of regular season play after being dealt their lone two defeats by the fellow foe West Rowan Middle, which emerged unbeate on its path towards the outright title. The Red Imps hit their individual peak during the one-day tournament attraction to score a two-way tie for the team postseason trophy.

Buoyed by the presence of the six weight class winners that also allowed MMS to share top team honors in that particular regard as well, the Imps tallied a total of 209 points to match the regular-season champion’s tally and bring back home half of the tournament’s championship hardware.

The cast comprised of mat cohorts Austin Emmert, Cody Roudesbush, Noah Laws, Johnny Merriman, Omar Raza and Brady Raab all overcame all fellow foes within their respective and various weight class ranks to receive the right to capture weight division bragging rights.

Their efforts coupled with the placements of additional teammates during the course of the competition conducted on North Rowan Middle School’s mats allowed Mooresville Middle to also draw the wrestling phase of its RIMSC schedule.

The best thing I saw this week featured the Mooresville Middle School Red Imps!

The undefeated Mooresville Middle School Red Imps football team poses for a photo at Tuesday’s Mooresville Graded Schools Board of Education meeting.


Scott Van Pelt often leads off SportsCenter with a feature dubbed the “Best Thing I Saw Today.”

The segments are often related to a pivotal moment in the day’s biggest sports event — a late-inning homerun that helps win a World Series, a long putt that drops in the cup on the 18th hole to win a major championship in golf, or a miracle three-pointer that sends an NCAA tournament game to overtime.

Borrowing from SVP, I’d like to weigh in on the best thing I saw this week. It happened at a Mooresville Graded School District School Board meeting and had nothing — and everything — to do with sports.

Superintendent Stephen Mauney and the MGSD board regularly set aside time to honor students for their academic, artistic and athletic achievements. District employees are also recognized in public for their efforts.

Tuesday’s meeting was no different.

Among the honorees was the Mooresville Middle School seventh-grade football team. Under the leadership of beloved head coach Jason Chambers, the Red Imps had an undefeated season this fall, scoring more than 100 points while allowing their opponents a meager 14 all year.

Throughout my career as a community journalist, I’ve been to countless school board and local government meetings in which science fair winners, all-state band members and championship winning teams were herded through the meetings, quickly arranged for a picture and sent on their way. Rarely do these photo ops seem worth the time and effort required of parents and students.

Tuesday’s MGSD Board meeting could have been one of those occasions, but Superintendent Mauney had other plans for the Red Imps. Inspired by seeing the NFL players on Monday Night Football introduce themselves and plug their colleges or high schools, he thought it would be special to have each player step up to the mic, introduce themselves, and state the position they play and where they wanted to go to college.

It may have added a few minutes to the meeting, but it was a moment in time that the boys — and one girl — on the team and their parents will probably remember for a long time.

It was definitely the best thing I saw this week.
