What is MIST?

Every year our MSA participates in an event known as MIST. MIST is an acronym for Muslim Inter-Scholastic Tournament (MIST). Both Muslims and non-Muslim are allowed to participate. Non-Muslims are a proud part of our team. The tournament is a combination of secular and non-secular competitions. For example, tournaments include but are not limited to basketball, knowledge tests, tajweed, essay writing, photography, web design, and short film amongst others. During the tournament when not competing, one attends workshops of their choice with fascinating lectures that are known to leave them inspired and awe-struck. Everything at the tournament revolves around the central theme chosen and released by MIST National a couple of months prior to the tournament. The New York tournament takes place over a course of three days during spring break, usually at Hofstra University. Townsend Harris High School has won Fourth and Third place at the regional competition in the last two years losing to our long-time rivals, Bronx High School of Science, Stuyvesant High School, and Brooklyn Technical High School. With an exponentially growing team, Insha’Allah we will take the Gold this up-coming year. We look forward to competing next week (April 5-April 7)!

MIST NY Team

Our History with MIST

Our MSA has participated in the MIST tournament ever since its introduction to New York City in 2009. Lead then by president captain Sadia Humayra, the 'Townsend Titans' as they were called were only a group of 3 MSA members. At the time, the MSA was not even known as MSA, but rather Salam club. The 3 members at MIST reflected the entire population of our MSA at the time. Although they 3 'founding mothers' (as they were all sisters) were not able to participate or place in competitions but they laid the foundation for our what is our MSA family today.
