Without fans, it wouldn’t be much of a game
Machias Memorial High School recognizes that the success of the athletic program partly depends on dedicated families and fans. Without their support, things like concessions, uniforms, jackets and trophies would no longer be part of the game. To this end, MMHS Booster’s faithfully raise funds to support its student athletes and encourages fans to display good sportsmanship.

Phase two was completed this spring in time for the Tournament of Champions event. Phase three will include installing proper drainage and replanting the outfield grass. Phase four will include the installation of lighting.
Backboards for MMHS Gymnasium
The Booster’s Club were able to purchase two new backboards this summer and are in the process of purchasing the final two. These backboards are a welcome update to the gymnasium. Through generous individual donations and fundraising activities the Boosters were able to make their goal a reality. All the gifts and donations are greatly appreciated.
The Bulldog Blitz Basketball Tournament
The Boosters, in partnership with the RMG Literacy Team, hold a basketball tournament each November called The Bulldog Blitz. Junior high teams from the Downeast compete on a Friday and Saturday to claim the title.
This tournament is open to teams at no charge. Local officials donate their effort and time to the tournament. The tournament is a significant fundraiser for the Boosters and the RMG Literacy Team and receives corporate support.
