Fall sports wrap-up


The senior boys on the varsity soccer team pose for a picture.

As the temperature drops and the holiday season begins, fall sports are wrapping up and it’s time to recap what has happened this season.

Cross Country

The varsity girls’ cross country team ended the season with one spot away from qualifying for states. 

“We didn’t start as strong as we have in the past couple of years but in the end we pull through and we train hard throughout the season and we won conference,” senior Alexandra Vlad said.

The varsity boys’ cross country team also did very well this season finishing in the top ten in regionals.

Field Hockey

The varsity girls’ field hockey were overall 4-11 and 2-4 in conference.

“We’ve done better in the past,” junior forward and midfielder Sydney Grigg said.

Looking forward, Grigg was impressed with the unity and cohesiveness of the team.

 “I think we got closer as a team and throughout the (season) we improved,” Grigg said.


The varsity football team won their third game this season with a score of 12-10 last Friday, Nov. 1 against High Point Central. The varsity football team is overall 3-7 and 1-3 in conference. 

“We are a young team,” sophomore Christian White said.

Optimistic for the future, White believes the team will go further and improve much from this year’s losses.

“Next year, we are going to improve a lot, we are going to be stronger and we know what we are doing now,” White said.

They play their last regular season game away against Asheboro this Friday, Nov. 8.

Boys’ Soccer

The boys’ varsity soccer team is overall 18-2-2 and 8-0 in conference. They are ranked third in the state.

“We hope to win the state title or at least make it to (the) quarterfinals,” senior center midfielder Brooks Atwell said. 

They have a playoff game against Porter Ridge on Saturday, Nov. 9.

Girls’ Tennis

The varsity girls’ tennis team is overall 9-5 and 5-3 in conference. 

Senior first position Elizabeth Weidl qualified for states but did not place.

“Our team is half freshman so I think we did really well,” Weidl said. “I am very happy to have ended my last high school tennis season as we did.”


The varsity girls’ volleyball team is 26-3 and 8-0 in conference. They made it to the final four but ended their season on Tuesday, Nov. 7 after a hard loss to Ardrey Kell.

“I think we went pretty far and I think we deserve it,” freshman setter and defensive specialist Natalie Quinlan said.
