Join the MPC Eagles for a special Patriotic Night pre-game tailgate as the football team takes on Irwin County. We will salute our military, 9/11, and first responders. Young Eagle fans can "touch-a-truck" at Dozier Hall Circle. Plus, the National Guard will present the National Anthem, accompanied by a fighter-jet flyover! The fun begins at 6:00 p.m. with family and PTF tailgates and culminates with the 7:30 p.m. kickoff. This is one MPCS family event not to be missed!
Six teams represented Cobb County in the Georgia Sports Writers Association poll released Wednesday, with three others receiving votes.

In the Bible there’s a story centered around Bereans, nobles who lived in the City of Berea. They were deemed noble because they readily searched for scriptures to examine the credibility of preachings.

The varsity girls volleyball team is currently ranked #1 in the GHSA, AJC, and MaxPreps rankings. After winning back-to-back Area championships, the Lady Eagles are now in the Elite 8 of the State playoffs. Their next match will take place at Holy Innocents this Saturday, tentatively 1:00 p.m. start.
