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!

Winter Sports seasons are underway!

Our winter sports teams have been working very hard and have already experienced some tough competition.

Our Boys Soccer team played three games in November. The first match was a 3-3 tie at Briarwood. The second game was a tough 8-1 loss at Cristo Rey. The third game was the squad's first victory at 5-2. This team has learned a lot with each game, and has continued to improve.

Our Varsity Girls Basketball team played four games in November. We won our first two games of the season versus Briarwood and Yes East End. We lost our next two games on the road at Southwest Christian and Family Christian. We are still trying to adjust to new personnel on the squad and a new offense, but we look strong so far. I am eager to see how we do at out first tournament of the year this weekend at Central Christian.

Our JV Boys Basketball team has done very well so far. They have won some very exciting games versus Briarwood, Yes East End, and Southwest Christian. Their only losses have been versus RCHA and Family Christian.

Our Varsity Boys Basketball team has had a very busy year so far. They have earned wins versus Briarwood, Southwest Christian, Family Christian, and Faith Academy. Their losses have been versus RCHA, Yes East End, Brenham Christian, Northeast Christian, and Legacy Prep. They've competed in the Faith Academy tournament in Bellville, where they got valuable court time and learned a lot about themselves and what they need to work on.

We look forward to what the month of December will bring for all of our sports. We have young and eager players that give it their all each day, and the coaches couldn't be happier with their efforts. We welcome our entire Woods community to come out and cheer for each team this season. All schedules are posted on this website, and we thank you all for your support.

Go Wildcats!
