School Athletic Department recently added a banner to our gymnasium. The banner will honor athletes beginning in
the 2015-16 school year who have played three seasons for all four years while
a student at Montville Township High School and earned a varsity letter in all
three seasons as a senior athlete. Full
time track athletes must be a scoring athlete in all three seasons as a senior. Students who have competed for three seasons
for three years will receive a “Triple Threat” T-shirt encouraging them to
continue their commitment to three sports in their senior year.
live in a culture of the specialized athlete, research indicates that multiple
sports builds better athletes. College coaches
continue to tell us that they prefer to recruit athletes who were multiple
sport athletes while in high school. We
have also observed that the best high school athletic programs have many
multiple sport athletes.
recognize that being a three season athlete requires tremendous effort,
determination and commitment and want to recognize and honor those athletes
with our new banner.
