Mayville State Homecoming Week 2020 kicked off with some great tradition … the Lip Sync Battle. This lively event has become a much-loved ritual for our students. Of course, precautionary measures related to COVID-19 were a top consideration for organizers, the members of the Student Athlete Advisory Council. Large indoor gatherings aren’t recommended, but thankfully, we were able to hold the event outside under the lights at Jerome Berg Field on an absolutely gorgeous Monday night, a much safer environment.
