First of all, we’d like to thank everyone that came out and supported the various Fall Sports Teams throughout the SPC Championships. The tournament games started on Friday and we, as a community, could not be more excited by the results.
The All Saints’ Volleyball and Field Hockey teams got things started with their first- and second-round games on Friday morning and afternoon. Volleyball defeated Houston Christian and Austin St. Stephen’s in their first two matches, setting them up for an opportunity to win the Division I SPC Championship on Saturday afternoon. Field Hockey lost a close game in the morning to Austin St. Stephen’s but rebounded for a resounding 5-0 win in their second game against Houston Christian. They finished their tournament play with a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Episcopal School of Dallas, landing them in 5th place in Division II. The Volleyball team took the court on Saturday afternoon against John Cooper High School from The Woodlands. The environment in the gym for the title match was unlike any the girls had been a part of throughout their season and they fed off that energy. In the end, they delivered All Saints’ very first SPC Division I Volleyball Championship, defeating John Cooper 3-1. A big congratulations goes out to those girls for a great season.
The All Saints’ Football team was looking for similar success in their Small School Championship Game on Friday night. After piling up 21 consecutive victories, the team was looking to end the season on another high note and bring All Saints’ its second straight SPC Championship and back-to-back undefeated seasons. When the final whistle blew, the team had completed its goals, defeating Houston Christian 42-7 in a convincing win. Again, a big congratulations is deserved. The time, effort, commitment, and dedication to representing the All Saints’ Community in the proper fashion is something we should all be proud of, and the humility expressed by those student-athletes throughout the season is a big reason why the team was able to achieve its level of success.
The All Saints’ Cross Country team got on the course on Saturday morning, and with over 140 participants, All Saints’ runners and student-athletes were able to persevere through the cold and windy conditions and place well into the top third of the runners. Their season was composed of early morning workouts and runs, which took place at 6:00 AM or, at times, even earlier. Their hard work and gradual progress throughout their season was evident in their final performance of the season and the Athletic Department could not be more proud.
With all the success shared by all Fall Sports teams, it is now time to turn the page to the Winter Sports. Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Basketball, and Swimming are underway, and Men’s Wrestling has taken to the mat. All schedules and rosters can be found on The Wire and we encourage students, parents, faculty, and staff to come support our student-athletes as they begin their respective seasons and strive to bring more Championships to All Saints’.
