Math & Science Academy basketball: Dragons open new gym with wins
Math and Science Academy held its first-ever home basketball games and opened its new gym on Jan. 3 in Woodbury.
MSA staff, students and supporters filled the new bleachers to watch the Dragons varsity boys basketball team earn a 74-48 win over the Academy For Sciences And Agriculture after the junior varsity team won 34-2 over AFSA.
Previously, all of Math and Science Academy’s home games were held at St. Croix Prep Academy.
“We are very excited about this new opportunity to have our students and faculty attend to cheer on our players while showing our school spirit,” said MSA’s Kirsten Elles.
MSA is a Woodbury-based charter school for students in grades 6-12.
The tuition-free public school “has a tradition of offering intense math and science experiences with the added distinction of providing creative and challenging opportunities in arts and humanities,” according to the MSA website.
MSA athletic teams compete in the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) in Class A. MSA sports teams include: cross country running, boys and girls basketball, volleyball, Nordic skiing, track and field, and baseball.
