News and Announcements
The 6th grade girls basketball team ended their season on a positive note by defeating St. Mark’s 30-4 in the St. Francis tournament on January 28th. Coach DeBakey’s focus for this season was to stress the major fundamentals of the game, including a strong emphasis on dribbling, passing, and shooting. The highlight of the season was an impressive 12-4 win over St. John’s on January 17th to give the Lady Vikings their first win of the season. Coach DeBakey would like to thank all the girls for their positive attitude and competitive spirit all season. These girls have a bright future and the entire coaching staff hopes these girls continue to get better in the off-season. Go Vikings!
The 6th grade basketball team had a great season. We emphasized learning the fundamental skills of the game, footwork, and offensive and defensive concepts. We played in a lot of close games and suffered some tough losses. I hope the majority of them continues with the sport to grow and develop their skills. They will benefit from off-season workouts and hopefully off-season basketball. They are a great group of boys and I enjoyed coaching them and wish them all the best of luck.
On behalf of the MS soccer coaching staff, we would like to thank all of our parents and runners for a fantastic season. Your support was greatly appreciated. We had so many parents attend games this year as well as provide nutritional snacks for pre-game and postgame meals. This not only means a lot to us as coaches, but it means a lot to the kids as well. This season we had a tremendous amount of growth from where we started as a team and individuals to where we finished. I could not have asked for a better group of young ladies. Thank you!
This season has been filled with so many goals and achievements. We started the season with the simple goal in mind of learning the fundamentals of soccer. The girls were fired up after some tough practices in December, they all came back in January ready to make a difference. We end the season with a record of 3-1-5. I am confident that every young lady on this team understands the importance of teamwork and perseverance. I am already looking forward to next year’s season. Thank you all for your support!
Next Wednesday (February 1st) will be our Vikings vs Cancer Day. It is a special event, in which our girls basketball program raises money to “fight for a cure.” We have designed pink long-sleeve dri-fit shirts, which we are selling for $25. For each shirt that we sell, $10 will go towards our cause. In the past two years, we have raised over $11,000. This year, we will donate our money to the “SagerStrong Foundation.” This foundation was started in honor of a famous basketball sideline reporter, who battled Cancer here in the Houston area. We are asking our families to consider purchasing a shirt, or shirts, to help this great cause. We appreciate your support and consideration.
Have a wonderful day and GO VIKINGS!!!
- Shirts will also be available in the school store on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. This will be a very limited number of shirts, so your best option would be to order them.
