Those attending the Mustang March Madness basketball tournament March 25-27 at Mount View Middle School got more than their money’s worth as all 16 teams involved across all four divisions proved more than worth the price of admission to the event.

Teams from Medomak, Newburgh, Stockton Springs, Pittsfield, Winslow, Thomaston, China, St. George and host Mount View took part in the tourney, all looking for a little March Madness of their own in hopes of running the table en route to the championship round.

In the end, it was the Pittsfield third- and fourth-grade girls, the Mount View third- and fourth-grade boys, the St. George fifth- and sixth-grade girls and the Mount View fifth- and sixth-grade boys who emerged victorious, each clinching their respective tournament crowns.

All four championship finals saw the winner of the loser’s bracket force the all-important “if” game, with both the Pittsfield third- and fourth-grade girls and Mount View third- and fourth-grade boys winning three straight games to win the tournament.
