Winter Soccer
School Location Maps

Winter sports are back in action after a busy month of December and winter break.

Soccer played district rivals Mount Carmel, Cristo Rey, and Clear Lake Christian. We played well against each team, and we have learned a lot over the course of this tough stretch of games. The team is currently 1-4-1 on the season and will play it's first match of the year at Mount Carmel Academy on Friday January 9th.

JV Boys Basketball finished up December and the first half of the season with a very exciting win over Lake Houston on December 18th. They are currently 4-2 on the season.

Girls Basketball won the Central Christian Tournament on December 6th. We hosted Texas Christian on December 8th and lost. After the winter break we had a rough start to our first game of the season, but came roaring back in the 4th quarter with 14 points to get the win versus Faith Academy on January 6th. Our Girls Varsity team is currently 6-3 on the season.

Boys Basketball faced a bit of adversity in the month of December with nagging injuries and very tough opponents. We lost at home versus Texas Christian on December 8th. We traveled to the Central Christian tournament where we fought for a big win over Lighthouse Baptist Academy. We came up a bit short versus Humble Christian, Central Christian, and Briarwood for a fourth place finish. After the much needed winter break and practice time, we came out on fire versus Faith Academy. It was a much needed win, and it put us in the right mind frame going into the second half of our season. The Varsity team is currently 6-9 on the season.

All 3 basketball teams will be back in action at home on Tuesday January 13th. Games will start at 4:00pm. The Woods Coaching staff is very proud of the work our athletes continue to put in each day at practice, and we are seeing improvements all the time. We are eager to get into the final stretch of our seasons and onto post season play. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you come out and cheer us on!

Go Wildcats!


Girls Varsity Basketball wins
Central Christian Tournament

Our Varsity Girls Basketball team played their best basketball of the season this past weekend at Central Christian's annual basketball tournament. We played Humble Christian on Friday and won 39-19. On Saturday we played Lighthouse Baptist and won 42-4. This put us in the Championship game versus host Central Christian. We played a very exciting game that went into double overtime. It came down to free throws and turnovers, and we secured first place in the final seconds for a 34-30 win.

We also earned four all tournament players awards and the tournament MVP award. These girls gave it their all and it paid off. They were exhausted when the game was over, but they were ecstatic about the win.

Go Wildcats!
