Girls soccer

Girls soccer lost their bi-district match against Johnson, playing a full game, two 10-minute overtimes and finally losing in penalty kicks. Jasmine Dominguez scored a header on a free kick from Helene Farris in the first half, and Johnson’s Kamryn Simpson tied the game with a left-foot shot from 30-yards out. The girls finished the season with a 18-1-3 record, with their only loss against Johnson.

Boys soccer

Boys soccer beat Churchill in a hard fought game on March 25, with the score 0-0 throughout the game and both overtimes. Senior goalkeeper Micah Jenkins had major saves, including a PK during the second half. The game winning penalty kicks were scored by sophomores JD Worley and Matthew Capetillo, junior Zack Olson and senior Ryan Harley. In last night’s area match against Lake Travis, the boys lost 6-0 to the Cavaliers. 


Baseball won a pair of shutouts, beating New Braunfels 11-0 on Friday and Clemens 9-0 on Tuesday. In the latter game, Brandon Taylor pitched his third complete-game shutout of the year, extending his scoreless-innings streak to 33. If the team can win its Friday rematch with the Buffaloes, they’ll earn the right to walk-up songs.


Softball got back in the win column in come-back fashion against the Steele Knights on Tuesday. The team was down going into the later innings and relied on solid pitching performances from Avery Truss and Lilly Mcnett. The offense exploded for 8 runs, including 3 runs in the bottom of the seventh which pushed the team to the victory. The night was capped by a walk-off single to score the go-ahead run. Their next game will be against the Wagner Thunderbirds this Thursday due to Friday being Good Friday.


Girls golf competed in the district championship on the 29 and the 30, taking home the win and becoming district champions. The boys team will be competing from march 31- april 1, and looks to follow up on the girls performance.


Several tennis players advanced from district this week. On the singles side, Hayden Rios placed first and Rowen Olsen placed second, and Hannah Giordanelli placed first. Additionally, Rocco Percavalle and Luke Cantu placed first in doubles and Katy Mutz and Kyle Sanders placed third in mixed doubles.


Wrestling competed in a quad tournament in the gym against Johnson, Madison and MacArthur on Tuesday. The boys beat both Madison and MacArthur, but lost to Johnson. The girls defeated Johnson and MacArthur, and lost to Madison.
