MBHS Athletics Year in Review

  • Tuesday, May 21, 2024 - Mountain Brook High School Athletics is pleased to share its 2023-24 year in review.

    “This was a historic year from a records standpoint,” Athletic Director Andy Urban said. “We won more state championships (10) than we have ever won in a single school year but we don’t just focus on results and trophies. This was my first year at Mountain Brook and to have the chance to develop new relationships with students, coaches and parents was a great experience. I can’t wait to grow that next year.”

    On the field of play, varsity MBHS teams won a state championship in volleyball, boys cross country, girls cross country, girls indoor track, wrestling (duals), wrestling (traditional), girls outdoor track, boys tennis, girls tennis and girls soccer. These 10 titles bring Mountain Brook High School to 196 total state championships in school history.

    On top of that, 15 teams won their area/sectional championship and nearly every team competed in their respective state playoffs/tournament and/or state finals. Additionally, a video board was added in Spartan Arena and the gameday experience on campus continues to grow thanks to community support and student involvement.

    The graduating class of seniors features over 20 student-athletes who will compete in 11 different sports at the collegiate level.

    “The success across the board is truly unbelievable,” Urban said. “I had a front row seat to witness these guys and girls work hard to be able to compete at a high level and I know they will cherish these memories for the rest of their lives. I know all of our kids will have the chance to be successful in life because of their experiences here. All that is a credit to their hard work, the high level of commitment from our coaches and the support from the parents that these kids receive.”

    Off the field of play, Mountain Brook Spartans shined as community representatives. Students from nearly every program were recognized for their academic and athletic achievements by organizations such as the Kiwanis Club, Monday Morning Quarterback Club, Greater Birmingham Tip Off Club, AHSAA and plenty of features from local media outlets.

    The Mountain Brook brand grew this year as well as the athletic department experienced an increase of over 100% in its following on social media platforms. All eyes were on Mountain Brook as MBHS sold over 40,000 tickets to events on campus throughout the school year. Those who couldn’t make it never missed a game as the Mountain Brook broadcast channel on the NFHS Network combined for over 16,000 streams this school year.

    “I want to thank everyone who helped make this year a success,” Urban said. “From our kids to our teachers and staff and coaches. Our parents poured their hearts into these kids and we had great community support both in spirit and financially through sponsors. I couldn’t have asked for a better year all around.”
