On Tuesday, January 8th, 2019 the Mountain Lakes Alumni Association, along with the MLHS Guidance and Athletic Departments, held an Alumni NCAA Panel to hear from Laker Alumni about their college sports experiences. The panelists talked about their high school sports careers, the college recruiting process, life as a college student athlete, and gave different advice on their sports journeys. Students and parents from the Mountain Lakes community had the opportunity to ask questions and meet with the alumni after the panel presentation.
