Fall sports update


The varsity volleyball team coming in for a huddle during warmups before their game against Williams High School.

Fall sports are halfway through the season, and it’s time for a recap of each team’s progress and what their hopes are for the remainder of the season.

Cross Country

The boys’ and girls’ cross country have placed in the top three at every meet so far. Their next meet is tomorrow,  Sept. 19, at Ivey Redmond Park.

“Our coach pushes us to do better,” senior Sidney Tsui said. 

Since winning the county meet, the girls’ team hopes to win their conference and regional meets.

“Our main goal is to win conference,” Tsui said.

Field Hockey

The varsity field hockey team is overall 0-5 and 0-1 in conference. They play a home match against R.J. Reynolds at home on tomorrow, Sept. 19.

“The team has a really good dynamic and equally balanced format of teamwork and communication,” senior defense player Chantal Stalling said. 

Looking forward, Stalling hopes for a successful rest of the season.

“I hope we win conference and continue to go on to states,” Stalling said. “I hope we continue to be a good team together and really bond.”


After a devastating loss to Northern last Friday, 42-10, the varsity football team is currently 2-2. They play a home non-conference game against Southwest this Friday, Sept. 20.

“The football team has had some struggles, but I feel like we are going to do well,” senior defensive back and wide receiver Davon Stewart said. “I hope for us to play together as a team, and really make our coach and school proud.”

Boys’ Soccer

The boys’ varsity soccer team is 8-0-1 overall and are currently ranked first in the state. The boys play away at R.J. Reynolds on Thursday, Sept. 19.

“I hope to go undefeated and make it far in playoffs,” senior captain Max Huber said in reference to their first round state playoff loss last season. “I hope we can exceed that and make it to the semifinals this year.”

Girls’ Tennis

The girls’ varsity tennis team is 3-3 overall and 1-2 in conference. The girls play Southwest today, Sept. 18, in a non-conference match.

“I hope that everyone on the team improves individually even if we don’t necessarily win,” senior first position Elizabeth Weidl said.


The varsity volleyball team is 12-1. They play Hough High School in a non-conference game today, Sept. 18 at home.

“I hope we can make it past the third round at states because that’s where we get stopped at every year,” sophomore middle hitter Grace Austin said. “(We are) keeping up good attitudes, our energy levels up and staying confident.”
