Winter Sports Seasons are Underway

Our Soccer and Basketball teams are working hard and fighting through their schedules right now.

Soccer has started their season out undefeated, with two wins so far. The team, under the direction of Coach Jasmine Martinez, has been working well together and getting better. We are still a young team, but we have a lot of heart and never give up.

Our middle school boys' basketball team has seen a lot of court time this season, and they currently have 3 wins to 4 losses so far. They have competed in their first tournament of the season at Family Christian Academy, where they finished in 4th place. We are looking forward to the continued progress of this team. Many of these young players also play up on the varsity team, and the experience is helping them become stronger players.

Our Girls Varsity team has had an impressive start to the season with 9 wins and 1 loss so far. We have competed in our first tournament at Central Christian Academy, where we won 1st place for the fourth year in a row. This team has benefited from strong Senior leadership and an aggressive defense. We have many more games to play, but we are happy with our progress so far.

Our Boys Varsity team is still trying to find their rhythm on the floor. We have a very young team, and we are still trying to find a way to play as a unit. We have a lot of basketball left to play, and we hope to be closer to where we want to be by the tie district play gets underway.

All schedules for these teams are posted on the website, and we look forward to your continued support.

Go Wildcats!
