The games may be over, but there is still one last event in the 2016 season. Our annual season ending banquet is this next Wednesday, May 18th at the Four Points by Sheraton. Doors open at 5:15p with dinner at 6:00p and the program starting at 7:00p.
This is a chance for us to celebrate a great season and to recognize those members of the Pride Family who are going to be moving on.
This year's banquet will be extra special. For those who do not already know, Coach Brandon Buck is leaving Mountain Pointe and retiring from coaching to pursue new challenges and opportunities in Idaho. Our banquet program this year will feature a tribute to him and the eleven years he dedicated himself to our program.

Family, alumni and friends are welcome to join us, but tickets need to be purchased by Sunday so please do not delay. Tickets are available from our online store for $35 each (current players are free) through the deadline. We hope you will be able to join us.
