Middle School Girls Soccer
For the first time in school history, SMS had a Middle School Girls soccer team. The team participated in the ETIS with other schools such as Norfolk Christian, Norfolk Collegiate, St. Patrick’s, Cape Henry Collegiate and The Williams School. Our girls captured the #2 seed in the postseason tournament where they fell in the Semi-Finals. The girls were coached by Jonathan Anderson. What a huge accomplishment and a big step moving forward with our soccer program!
This season there were three volleyball teams. Blue, White and Gold. The teams competed in the ETIS against Williams School, St. Patrick’s, St. Pius X, Norfolk Collegiate, Norfolk Christian, Beach Breakers, St. John’s, St. Gregory’s and Christ the King. The Blue and White teams played in the Challenger division while the Gold team competed in the Championship division. All the teams did extremely well this year. Every team made it to the playoffs where the Blue team fell in the opening round to St. Gregory’s in three tough sets. The White team won their first round match against Christ the King. They won their quarterfinal match against The Beach Breakers. They won their semi-final match against an undefeated St. John’s team before losing in the finals to St. Gregory’s in three of the toughest sets you will ever see! Great Season Ladies! The Gold team competed in the Championship division and won against St. Gregory’s in three sets in the quarterfinal round. In the semi-finals, they played St. John’s and lost in three tough sets. Overall, the teams did an outstanding job this year and the athletes learned a lot and had a lot of fun.
Our recreational teams play soccer through Beach FC.
