Stallions Get Boost from Local Teams
The STMA Stallions program received hundreds of dollars in support over the last couple of weeks from the varsity basketball programs at St. Michael-Albertville High School.
The Stallions were featured at center court of both the boys’ basketball game back on Feb. 3 and the girls’ game on Tuesday, Feb. 17 (vs. Rogers), where checks were presented for more $1,500 to the Stallions.
