Mustang Nation,

 

This school year has been exciting for coaches, athletes and fans of Mustang Athletics! Our teams are competing at top levels, and I’m grateful to share this brief, year-to-date recap of the accomplishments we are celebrating. Thank you for your continued support!

 

Our Mustang Tennis team finished as Bi-District Champions and advanced to the area playoffs where they fell just short to a very strong team from The Woodlands. Coach Hogan and her team look forward to building upon the solid start as they get back on the courts this spring.

 

Mustang Cross Country had an impressive showing at District.

  • The JV Boys team placed 2nd, and the JV Girls team placed 3rd, just one point out of 2nd
  • The Varsity Boys team finished in 4th. This was the best finish for a varsity boys’ team in 10 years!
  • The Varsity Girls team finished in 3rd place for the 2nd year in a row advancing all runners to Regionals.

Several runners competed at the Regional Meet to finish up their season.

 

Our Mustang Volleyball team finished the season strong in a tie for second in 9 6A with an 8-4 District record. They advanced to the first round of playoffs where they fell short to a very strong team from Sachse. Your Mustang Volleyball continues to grow and compete at top levels, and I’m already looking forward to seeing them next season!

 

The Mustang Football team wrapped a strong season as Bi-District Champions with an impressive showing in the playoffs. This year’s team became the first in Pearce history to record a play-off win in the highest classification in the state of Texas 6A. It was an honor to represent Mustang Nation!

 

The Mustang Boys Basketball team heads to Garland on Tuesday tonight to take on South Garland in the third round of playoffs. The team has dominated the entire season on both sides of the ball, and we are grateful for the loud and resounding support of the Mustang Community as we continue our playoff run!

 

Lady Mustang Basketball finished the season with all teams showing double digits in the win column! Coach Edge and his coaching staff are excited about the growth, commitment and strength of our teams for years to come. We are already looking forward to seeing them on the courts next season!

 

The Mustang Swim team concluded an amazing season last week as they sent several swimmers to compete at State! Boys, Girls and Divers all walked away as District Champions, sending 24 record-breaking athletes to Regionals. They wrapped the season as a Top 5 Team in DFW and 35th out of 320 teams at State. We are excited to watch this program dominate for many years ahead!

 

The Mustang Wrestling team is celebrating Aaron Goldman and Bella Burnworth this week, as they represent Mustang Nation at State! The team continues to build upon the strong foundation that they have established.

 

After a strong fall the Mustang Golf team is off to a great start to the spring schedule. The varsity boys have competed in 4 tournaments winning one and, finishing no lower than 6th in the others. The Varsity girls finished 5th overall in their last contest which represents their best finish of the year. These ladies are peaking at the right time.

 

The Mustang Boys Soccer team is currently 2nd in District with an impressive 15-0-4 record. They are a Top 10 Team in DFW, and we look forward to watching them compete for the top spots!

 

The Lady Mustang Soccer team has a 9-5 season record and 5-1 District record as they currently sit in 2nd place in the District. These athletes compete at the highest level each week and are a force to be reckon with as they don’t back down.

 

Our Mustang Baseball, Softball and Track seasons have gotten underway – between the raindrops! We have strong teams that we are certain will bring home wins in tournaments, meets and district.
