Spring sports are only three weeks away, however with this weather you wouldn’t know it. While some students continue their off-season regimens and prepare for Baseball, Softball, Golf, Track & Field, and Lacrosse, those that are engaged in Winter sports are pushing strong towards the SPC Championships in Houston, Texas.
The Men’s Varsity Basketball team looks for continued success in SPC Conference-play tonight, Friday, January 24, as they take on rival St. Mark’s of Dallas at 7:30pm. All Saints’ received a #9 ranking in the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches for all Private Schools. The team is playing well and will look to make a push for an SPC Championship in February.
The Women’s Varsity Basketball team is very young, yet very competitive. They suffered a close loss to Arlington Oakridge this past week and will look to bounce back next Tuesday, January 28, and improve their overall seeding for the SPC Tournament.
The Men’s and Women’s Varsity Soccer teams both won their conference games against Arlington Oakridge this week, and the Men’s team will take on St. Mark’s in another SPC Conference game tonight at 7:00pm. Both teams are in the mix to play themselves into the SPC Division I Tournament and will need strong team play to do so.
The Men’s and Women’s Swimming teams will compete in the Greenhill Invitational Swim Meet tomorrow, Saturday, January 25, among five other private schools from the DFW area. It is their final meet before heading to Houston for the SPC Championships on February 15.
Finally, the Varsity Wrestling team has done well in SPC matches and will travel to Houston next weekend, January 31 and February 1, to compete in the Prep State Wrestling Tournament. The first- and second-place winners from each weight class will be invited to the Prep National Wrestling Tournament to take on the nation’s best private school wrestlers. In addition, they will be competing in the SPC Wrestling Tournament on February 15 in Houston, Texas, at St. John’s High School.
The athletes feed off the support from the All Saints’ community and we encourage everyone, friends, family, students, and faculty, to show their support for these final three weeks. These student-athletes have done a tremendous job of managing their rigorous academic demands along with their responsibilities to teammates and coaches for their respective sports, and the Athletic Department could not be more proud of their effort.
