News and Announcements
The 7th grade boys soccer team has been unblemished so far this season, starting 11-0 after recently winning their 2nd consecutive ROB Soccer Tournament. The team played their opening round game on Thursday against St. Johns, winning 6-1. That win put them in the semifinal against Kinkaid. The boys were tested in the semi, but showed great determination and teamwork en route to a 3-1 victory. That win secured a spot in the Championship game against St. Francis. The Championship was a lopsided affair, with our boys coming out on top, 10-1. The boys dominated throughout the tournament, which has been the story all season! Coach Apande praised his team by saying, “The boys work incredibly hard at practice, have fun playing together, and the enjoy each other’s success on the field. It is a fun group to coach.”
Great job and Go Vikings!
Our varsity boys basketball team started district play with a huge win on the road at Beaumont Kelly, 56-52. The team showed a lot of heart and determination throughout the game. Our boys battled adversity early on, falling down by 16 points with a couple of minutes remaining in the 2nd quarter. After going into the half down by 12, our Vikings were confident they were going to make a run. Anchored by their stingy defense and intensity, our Vikings made a big run in the 2nd half, securing a 65-62 road win at State-ranked Beaumont Kelly.
Our Varsity boys basketball team is now 1-0 in district play after that huge road win. Come support our boys at HOME this Friday as they play against Awty at 7:00!
The JV Boys soccer team is off to a great start heading into our winter break. After 4 games, we stand at 2-0-2 having beaten our sister school British School of Houston TWICE. This is becoming a great rivalry already! Leading scorers are Clemente Zapata with 5 and close behind is Darren B with 3. We are right back to work with a game on January 3rd against a strong Houston Christian program.
The Boys Varsity Soccer team currently sits at 6-2, allowing a total of 6 goals in the 8 games so far. The offense has been led my senior Lewis H., who is leading the team in goals. The highlight of the season so far was taking second place in The Viking Cup tournament. After the break, the team will start its district schedule. The boys are excited to compete in a new district and at the 6A level. It should prove to be challenging, but nothing that the team can’t handle.
We have had a very successful portion of our season in 2016! This excellent group of young men are not only great student-athletes, but great people as well. The chemistry displayed between them on and off the field is wonderful as they are absolutely rolling together as a team. I have been exceptionally pleased with the way that this team plays together. The passing alone has been outstanding. There have been numerous instances when one could have taken a shot to score a goal for himself, yet passed to a teammate who had an even better scoring opportunity. That kind of selfless play on the pitch will take us very far throughout the season.
Numerically, we are 3-0-0 on the season thus far with a tournament win as well. As a team, we have scored 32 goals and conceded only 3 goals. We are looking forward to the new year with new challenges and opportunities!
