The 8th grade football team ended their season in dramatic fashion by scoring 19 unanswered points in the second half to defeat the Presbyterian Panthers 19-6 in the HJPC Division II 3rd place bowl game. The Vikings defense was dominant after giving up an early score and the offense was unstoppable behind quarterback Channing D, running back Joel C, and wide receiver Andrew D. Coach DeBakey and Coach Brown would like to thank the entire team for their amazing effort at practice and their willingness to be coachable all season. This group of 8th graders have laid a great foundation for next year’s team as the Viking middle school football program continues to grow and improve. We are already looking forward to next season. Go Vikings!
The 8th grade girls’ volleyball team ended their season with a 5-6 record qualifying them for the end of season conference tournament. Our team set this goal on the first day of practice back in early August. It was simply, we would work hard, fight and win a spot in the tournament that has eluded us for a couple of years. Every player on this team, including alternates and managers, was driven and dedicated to each other, The Village School, and our commitment to do our best. It was truly a remarkable season, friendships were forged, goals were obtained and determination drove us all. On to bigger and better….GO VIKINGS!
Our Varsity Coaching Committee meets each week to discuss their programs in an effort to create consistency and excellence throughout our athletic department. One of their recent tasks was to define what “Culture of Champions” means to them.

After finishing 6-3 in the regular season, the Varsity football team advanced to the TAPPS Independent State Playoffs for the first time in school history. As a 3 seed, our Vikings will take on St. Dominic Savio from Austin. The game will be played on Friday, October 28th, at 7:00PM in Giddings, TX. This is an incredible achievement for our football team, and for second year Head Coach, Kevon Bagot, it must be assuring that his program is headed in the right direction. The school is providing a fan bus to the game to help cheer on our Vikings to victory!
The Varsity cross country team will also be competing in the post-season. After a strong district showing last Tuesday, our Viking runners are poised to show what they can do at the TAPPS 6A State Championship this Saturday in Waco, TX. At the district meet, our boys team took 3rd place overall, led by Junior Alex A-E. and Eduardo G, who took 3rd and 5th respectively. The girls team finished 4th, and were led by defending 4A State Champion, Charlotte S, who finished 2nd overall at the district meet. Good luck to our Village Viking cross country team this weekend! Go Vikings!
This past Tuesday, Village cross country competed in the new TAPPS District 3 6A(Large School) Championships. Boys Varsity, having finished 3rd in 4A last year finished 3rd in 6A this year, and beat rival Katy St John 23. St. Thomas won the race, followed by St Pius.
