Boys Soccer Finishes Up
at T-CAL State Tournament

Boys Soccer had a tough schedule this season against most of the 3A schools in our league under the direction of Coach Jasmine Martinez. In January alone, we played Mount Carmel, Baytown Christian, Allen Academy, and Clear Lake Christian. The team worked very hard, and always had a great attitude no matter the situation.

We traveled to San Antonio for the 3A state soccer tournament as a 2A school. We played our last two games against Cristo Rey and Faith El Paso. Despite many injuries and limited personnel, they held Cristo Rey to zero goals in the second half, and lost a very close game to Faith El Paso.

We have improved dramatically this season and we are looking forward to how this team continues to grow. Our Boys Soccer team finished up their season with a record of 2-7-1.

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!
