It is with a very heavy heart that The Varsity Volleyball Team share the news of our friend, Kelly Hults Lopez, who passed away after a very tough fight with neuroendocrine cancer. Always positive, with a contagious laugh and smile for everyone, she loved her family fiercely and fought so hard to be around as long as possible for her two young girls. Please continue to keep her family, and especially her husband Hector and 4 and 2 year old daughters, Olivia and Sophia, in your thoughts and prayers.
On Thursday, September 24th the JV and Varsity girls volleyball teams will be honoring Kelly Hultz Lopez at their home game against St. John Paul 23. Please join us as we celebrate her life and raise funds for those left behind. The first game starts at 4:30pm.
“Michael Li gets his ball out of the cup as his Little Linksters playing partners look on. Michael had his hole in one on #7 at Longwood Country Club from 118 yards. Way to go, Michael” (STPGA Newsletter). Michael L, 6th grade student at The Village School, made his first hole in one on Sunday, September 13th, at a Junior Golf tournament at Longwood Country Club. This is an INCREDIBLE achievement. Golfers can go an entire lifetime and never make a hole in one. Congratulations to Michael. I’m sure that ball will go in a nice display case for you to enjoy for the rest of your life. The Village School golf team can’t wait to have this youngster on the team! Congratulations, Michael!

The Varsity girls volleyball team is a couple of days away from their first district game of the year. The Vikings travel to Northland Christian HS on Thursday and are looking to start strong in TAPPS District 5-4A. The Vikings played a competitive non-conference schedule in order to prepare for the challenges that await them in district. The girls tasted success having won the Silver bracket of the Baytown Christian Tournament. They played in one of the state’s premier HS volleyball tournaments when they traveled to the Allen Tournament. That tournament fields a number of Division 1 players from all over the state of Texas. “This is the best way to speed up the growth process of such a young team. The girls have developed so much in such a short time. They know what is ahead of them and they are excited for the opportunity.” This young team is looking to keep building from the experience they have gained and hope that will propel them into district play. Good luck to our Lady Viking volleyball team on Thursday. The team’s first district home game is scheduled for Thursday, September 24th at 5:30pm. Come and support your Lady Vikings! District starts now!
