Saint Gregory was second with 171 and Star of the Sea was 3rd with 173.
Track and Field
This season there were three volleyball teams. Blue, White and Gold. The Blue and White teams consisted of a mix of sixth and seventh graders while the Gold team consisted of all eighth graders with one sixth grader on the team. 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. In the ETIS, there are two divisions. Challenger division is for lower experienced players and Championship division is for more advanced players. 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 quarterfinals to the Beach Breakers in three tough sets. The White team won their quarterfinal matchup against St. Pius X but fell just short in three grueling sets to Williams School in the semi-finals. The Gold team competed in the Championship division and fell to St. Gregory’s in three tough sets in the quarterfinal round. Overall, the teams did an outstanding job this year and the students learned a lot and had a lot of fun.
Middle School Boys Soccer
This year, St. Matthew’s had a middle school boys’ soccer team coached by Mr. Robert Avis. The team consisted of any sixth, seventh or eighth grade boy that wanted to play soccer. There were 23 students on the team. The team played in the ETIS which consisted of St. Patrick’s, Norfolk Collegiate, Norfolk Christian, Beach Breakers and Williams School. The SMS team finished around .500 for the regular season and made the playoffs but fell in a hard fought game to Williams School in the opening round. The team made great success this season and improved a lot throughout the season. The biggest win of the season was against a Norfolk Collegiate team that fell in the Championship game. The team also had a great partnership with the Bishop Sullivan Varsity boys team to work on skills for improvement. It’s a blessing to have a varsity team that is willing to help our team. SMS also had three players make the ALL-ETIS team. We are really looking forward to next season already.
The boys cross country team competed very well this year and finished every race in first place. In the final race of the season, they fell two points short of winning the championship. In particular, Riley D. finished every race this past season in first place and set a personal record. The girls cross country team finished in the top three in every race this season and finished the season off with the first championship since 2011. The girls team is very young and has a good chance to repeat next year.
