Thank you to our parents, and all who participated, for the support of our Village Swim Team. We could not have been so successful without your help and dedication.
It has been a pleasure getting to help these student-athletes improve both in their swim skills and sportsmanship. From 6th to 8th grade, boys and girls all worked together supporting and pushing each other to be successful. We had a great season, and as a team we improved so much from last season when we came in 6th at HJPC. Also, The Village School still holds 3 HJPC swim records; Boys 200 Medley Relay at 1:58.03, Mac B. 100 IM at 1:00.04, and Olivia G. 50 Free at 25.82.
This season, The Village School finished 3rd and our Boys Team won 1st as the HJPC Champion! For our relays, we scored Girls Medley 7th place, Boys Medley 1st place, & Boys Free 1st place. The top 8 times for individual races were Alex C. 1st 100 Free & 1st 50 Breast, Daniel I. 2nd 50 Free & 1st 50 Back, Matthew W. 3rd 100 IM & 3rd 50 Fly, Cole B. 5th 100 IM & 3rd 50 Breast, Arsyad G. 8th 50 Free & 3rd 100 Free, Shay B. 6th 50 Back, and Gabby B. 50 Fly 8th. Every single student-athlete on the team earned at least two person best times in the season. That was the goal and I am so proud of everyone accomplishing and/or surpassing it! All of the hard work and late night practices have paid off. I loved how excited everyone was for the meet shaking the competition’s hands, saying good luck and good job, cheering on deck, and watching each other’s races. Way to end the season with so many victories and positive attitudes! We represented Village very well.
I look forward to another great season next year, and hopefully in our own Village School pool!

The 7th grade girls basketball team ended their season on a positive note by winning the last 3 games. Coach Purnell’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 37-16 win over ROB on January 23rd. Coach Purnell 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!
On behalf of the 6th Grade Boys Soccer Team, I would like to thank all of our parents and supporters for a fantastic season. Your support was greatly appreciated. This not only means a lot to us as coaches, but it means a lot to the kids as well. We also want to thank you for the support in the method of develop we took in preparing the 6th grade boys for next years season. They loved it and it’s great to know that that they will better prepared for the coming challenges that lie ahead of them in their school careers. Thank you!
Our team experienced a good amount of success this season. While we did not play as many games as we had hoped to participate in, when we did play official matches, we remained undefeated. But, what we are most proud of the fact that every kid on the roster improved. They had a great attitude all year long and worked so hard at each practice. Soccer can be easily one of the most competitive sports here at The Village School and even though there were tough practices, challenges that pushed their limits, and minor injuries, all the boys pushed through it and showed the dedication and loyalty that makes a true Viking athlete.
I will really miss this group of kids. With this being my first year as a soccer coach here at The Village, I had the privilege to coach this talented group of athletes, and couldn’t have asked for a better first team. We made a commitment to get better at the beginning of the season, and upon looking back, I was blown away by how far each athlete has come. It was fun to see the growth in their physical development, their mental strength and acuity, but most of all their passion for their teammates and sport.
Good luck to everyone in their future seasons and sports.

The 7th Grade Boy’s Soccer Team had a impressive 2016-17 season. With our overall record being 9-0 and winning 1st place in the St. Johns and ROBS tournament, there were so many great highlights that we all shared and enjoyed. Going undefeated and dominating the competition was definitely not an easy thing to do. This team showed quite a bit of skill, fitness and camaraderie on the field. Each player had his teammate’s back which showed a true brotherly bond. I’m so proud of how far they have come in their development. These guys were truly Champions. Congratulations on a great season!
