School may only be starting up this month, but Mason athletes have been training and practicing all through August to prepare for this season’s games and meets. To make cheering on the mustangs easier, we’ve found the top most competitive and exciting games and meets to come watch over the next few months.

First home football game and tailgate party
On September 9, the Mason varsity football team is hosting their first home game of the season at 7:30, and the cheer team will also be there. At 5:30 before the game, Mason is holding the first ever tailgate party, so come out early to get some food and relax after the first week of school!

Cross Country Braddock Relays
On September 17 Mason’s cross country team will be competing at Lake Braddock High School, with races starting at 3:00 on the track. Cross country may not have any home meets, but this one is a short drive away, and each athlete will run 1.5 miles as part of a relay race around the school track and campus. Take advantage of this close meet to come cheer on Mason’s runners.
