The MPHS Freshman boy’s basketball team fell to Iowa City West Tuesday night by a score of 55-46.  Panthers led 29-27 at halftime.  Rhett Zeglen scored 13 points and Tucker Johnson added 10 to lead M.P. who will travel to Ft. Madison Friday night.


A schedule change was announced by the Mt. Pleasant High School Athletic Department Tuesday, the Mt. Pleasant vs. Mediapolis JV girls basketball game scheduled for January 11th, will now start at 6:00 instead of 5:30.  They will be playing only one half in the JV game prior to the Varsity game.
