Mount Greylock’s Top Sports Moments This Year

As Mount Greylock enters the 2024 spring sports season, this article takes a moment to look back at the top sports moments the Mount Greylock teams have had so far this year.

Among these top moments, the Girls Nordic Ski team won the State Championship for the first time since 2019, the volleyball team won their first State Championship ever and the Boy’s Nordic ski team placed second in the State Championship. 

With the retirement of Nordic Ski head coach Hiram Greene, the 2023-2024 season brought new challenges to the team. However, every cloud comes with a silver lining; the Nordic Ski Team now has Ian Nesbit as a new coach. 

Another top moment occurred when the Boys Basketball team had a stunning victory over Easthampton, gaining them entry into the MIAA state tournament.

The Boys Basketball team had a couple of other great wins in their season. On January 15, our Mounties won a hard-earned victory against McCann Technical School. Senior captain Judge Martin went head to head with McCann’s pivot player, Walter Mazza. 

Martin told iBerkshires, “It was just an awesome battle. I love being able to go back and forth with a big man. He’s a good basketball player, and he’s a strong dude. But tonight, I found my way onto the boards, and, honestly, I got in the scorebook, which I don’t normally do.” 

The Girls Basketball team also had an exciting season, with many ups and downs. During one of their tournaments, they had a streak of bad luck involving a concussion to Jackie Brannan, an ankle injury to Tanley Drake and a torn ACL to Livvy Eakin. Though these injuries were costly, they did allow some of the younger players to get experience they wouldn’t have otherwise. 

The Girls Nordic Ski team had a smashing success at the state tournament, with Lauren Miller leading the way for Mount Greylock, placing 5th overall. Senior Annie Miller, Lauren’s older sister, followed in 7th place

The team was short on racers, meaning the varsity team was an especially young one. 

Lauren Miller said that Greene retiring is “definitely the end of a significant era of Greylock skiing…but Ian is a great coach and did really well in his first year coaching.”

The Mount Greylock volleyball team won their first state title in program history this year. Senior captain Celina Savage said the players were “driven, open to learning, openly competitive and incredibly kind to one another.”

The fall and winter seasons have brought the Mounties huge success, and attention now turns to the spring sports teams.
