It’s hard to believe that there are only two more weeks in the seasons of All Saints’ Fall Sports. Not too long ago, students were waking up early for pre-season practices in August, unknowing of what the upcoming season held in store for them, but determined to progress as a student-athlete and reach goals set by their respective teams. Fast forward to the present and, now, only one week of regular season match-ups remain before the SPC Championships take center stage next Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 6th-8th. The following is a recap of last week’s games and a look ahead to what is coming up this week:
The All Saints’ Varsity Volleyball team took a big step last week and secured the #1 seed from the North Zone with wins over SPC Volleyball rival Greenhill on Tuesday, October 21, and then defeating The Dutch from Holland Hall during their trip to Tulsa, Oklahoma, last Friday. The team has its final game of the season tonight, Tuesday, October 28, at 6:00pm in All Saints’ Varsity Gymnasium. The Volleyball Seniors will be recognized prior to their final home match against rival Fort Worth Country Day.
All Saints’ Varsity Field Hockey team had two big contests last week with games against Greenhill and Holland Hall. The team narrowly lost to Greenhill, 1-0, in a game that saw the Saints with multiple chances to put Greenhill away but they were unable to capitalize on their opportunities. On Friday, along with the Volleyball and Football teams, the Field Hockey team traveled to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to take on Holland Hall. Unfortunately, the team lost 1-5, but still has a chance at advancing into post-season play with a win this Thursday, October 30, against rival Fort Worth Country Day. Game time is set for 6:30pm.
The All Saints’ Varsity Football team wrapped up another undefeated regular-season with its 49-34 win over Holland Hall on Friday, October 24. The victory of (Oklahoma City) Casady High School the previous week locked the Saints in to the #1 seed from the North Zone. As such, the team will host (Houston) Kinkaid High School on Saturday, November 1, at 12:00pm at All Saints’ McNair Stadium in the SPC Large School Semi-Final Playoff game. The winner will advance to play in the SPC Large School Championship on Friday, November 7, at Jesuit Preparatory School in Dallas, Texas.
The All Saints’ Varsity Cross Country team is well underway in preparation for the SPC Championships being held at Dallas’ Norbuck Park pn Saturday, November 8.They will not have a meet this week, but their practices remain intense and focused on personal improvement as they near the end of their season, hopeful of making a splash at SPC and performing their best as a team.
We look forward to seeing everyone at this week’s games. Be Early. Be Loud. Stay Late. Go Saints! PTF
