On Friday, October 2nd, the entire Village School volleyball program will be traveling to watch one of their own, Lauren Fernandez-Miller, play for her new school. Last Spring, Lauren received an athletic scholarship to St. Thomas University to continue playing the sport she loves. Lauren was a student at The Village School her entire life. She has given countless hours back to The Village School by working volleyball camps, and she still shows up to support the program since she has graduated. As a freshman, Lauren is already a key contributor to the St. Thomas University volleyball team. She is top 10 in her conference in multiple statistical categories. St. Thomas University has had a great start to their season, and Lauren’s excellent play has played an important part in her team’s success.
This Friday will be a special moment for Coach Klausmeyer, the coaching staff, and the entire volleyball program. All of our current players have been positively impacted by Lauren. Some have had the pleasure of being her teammate. Some have had the pleasure of watching her play. Some have had the pleasure of being coached by her at camp. This Friday, when St. Thomas University takes on Our Lady of the Lake, the program will have the opportunity to cheer her on, and show our appreciation for who she is as a person, and appreciate her ability on the court.
Game time is set for Friday, October 2nd, at 6:00pm.

The sixth and seventh grade football team tied against Presbyterian on Thursday night, 7-7. After being down 7-0 in the first quarter, the Vikings stormed back with a sixty yard drive to tie up the game before halftime. Kemdi E scored the Vikings only touchdown on a 1-yd touchdown run, and ran in the ensuing one-point conversion. The Vikings defense shut out Presbyterian in the second half with notable performances by Benjamin C, Hugh C, Rodrigo J-M, and fumble recovery by Travis M. With that tie, the Vikings are now 2-1-1 on the season. Come out next Thursday as the middle school takes on the Northside Lions at home at 4:30pm. Go Vikings!
