Congratulations to the Volleyball Team!
Both our JV and Varsity volleyball teams concluded their seasons recently and had great experiences. The JV Volleyball team concluded a great season of growth and development. We are excited for the girls to keep growing from their 5 wins this season! Our Varsity team concluded a great season with a run to the GISA AAA State Tournament, winning their first 2 matches, advancing to the Final Four! The girls lost to to the eventual state champions but fought hard the entire time! Congratulation to all the girls who played volleyball this year and thank you to Coach Shock and Coach J for leading these girls during the season.
Irish Cross Country Developing a Winning Tradition
What a season for both of our Middle School and Upper School Cross Country teams! The Varsity Cross Country team is preparing for the GISA State Meet on this Saturday. They are led by 10th grader Sydney Whalen who qualified for the State Meet by placing 7th in Regionals! Our Boys Cross Country team also qualified for the State Meet by placing 3rd as a team. They are led by 8th grader Matthew Lemons, among others. Matthew Lemons was also the GISA State Champion in the MS State Cross Country Meet, and Jonathan Waters placed 2nd in that same meet. Great job Sydney, Matthew, and Jonathan!
