As the weather gets colder and October draws to an end, fall sports come to a close. From conference championship wins to state playoffs, here’s the recap for the fall season.

Cross Country

The girls won the conference championship, and the top eight runners will advance to regionals this weekend.

“The team felt like a big family to me,” freshman Sarah Boals said. “Everyone was so supportive from start to finish!”

The boys placed second in conference, and the top seven runners with two substitutes will also advance to regionals.

Field Hockey             

The varsity field hockey team finished 13-2 in their regular season, and are currently in the second round of state playoffs after defeating Carrboro.

“I have confidence in our team,” senior captain Samantha Gregory said. “I really hope we go far into playoffs this year.”

This season marks the team’s fourth consecutive conference championship win. The team has also been in many overtime games.

“I won’t forget the overtime game against Reagan,” Gregory said. “That was the most intense game I have ever played in.”

Football

The varsity football team is currently 4-6 as they head to play Grimsley next Friday for their last regular season game.

“We have played a really tough schedule so far, and we lost some really close games,” senior defensive end Jacob Scheponik said. “We are definitely better than our record, and I hope we get a chance to prove that.”

When looking back at the season, the overtime win against Southeast was a highlight for Scheponik.

“It was an incredible game,” Scheponik said. “We were definitely the underdogs, but it was really fun to pull off the upset at home.”

Boys Soccer

The varsity soccer team will end their regular season on Oct. 30 against Southwest, and they will continue into state playoffs. Their record is 16-1-1, and they won the conference championship.

“Our season has been great,” sophomore winger Agustin Orozco said. “We have a long winning streak, and we have high hopes for playoffs.”

Girls Tennis

The varsity tennis team finished up their season 10-5 with a win against Davie.

“All the girls on the team improved a lot,” junior first position Elizabeth Weidl said. “We all bonded; I knew it was going to be a fun season.”

Weidl was undefeated this season, won the conference tournament and placed third in regionals. She will advance to states this Friday in Raleigh.

Volleyball

The varsity volleyball team is 16-10. They secured the conference championship and are heading to state playoffs.

“I will never forget the conference championship against Page,” sophomore captain Grace Hammond said. “It was a five-set thriller that we were able to win.”

They will play in the second round of state playoffs Thursday, Oct. 25, at home against Mooresville.
