A pair of high school basketball squads from Mount View High School hit the hardwood on Saturday, Nov. 24 for the Bulldog Classic — a preseason event — at Lawrence high and junior high schools for exhibition contests against Class A and B opponents.

Teams from Medomak Valley of Waldoboro, Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield, Lawrence, Mount View of Thorndike, Messalonskee of Oakland, Waterville, Bangor and Skowhegan participated.

The Mustang varsity lost 60-26 to Skowhegan and 47-24 to Messalonskee, while the Mount View junior varsity lost against Skowhegan and MCI, scores unavailable.

The Mustangs sent two teams, but only 13 total players, so a few student-athletes swung between the teams to give each more substitutes.

Mount View players included Shala Davis, Sophia King, Hannah Coolen, Sage Cassidy, Lydia Bryant, Kaylan Anderson, Alex Fountain, Leah Bradstreet, Francesca Rocca, Carli Finn, Hailey Croteau, Callee Anderson, Jessica Webber and Kiera Munro (injured).
