We all slip away by plane, car, trailer or motorcycle…we were suitably subdued, packed and waiting for our trip back to the ordinary.

Adopt a Mustang returns

November 19, 2011

Mustang Moms are reviving their "Adopt-A-Mustang" program for the varsity basketball boys and girls. The program is designed to let students from kindergarten through sixth grade "adopt" a high school athlete. Students have the chance to adopt a Mustang varsity basketball player (girl or boy) on Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2011 at the home game for both teams. Registration is still $25, and students will get a t-shirt and button with their adoptees name and picture. And because the varsity players are in such high demand, students can adopt the same Mustang if they want.
