Last week we saw our Middle School Boys’ Soccer and our Girls’ Volleyball seasons come to an end with tournament play.
The boys’ soccer team defeated Norfolk Christian in the semi-finals last Monday 5-0 and advanced to the championship game against St. Patrick’s. This is the first time ever our boys were able to host the championship game! They played a great game but, unfortunately, fell 1-0 to St. Patrick’s in the finals. This team finished the regular season as the #1 seed.
The volleyball teams played their end of season tournaments last week as well:
The SMS Blue team fell to St. Gregory’s 3-0 in the play off game.
The SMS White team won their play off game against Christ the King and advanced to the quarterfinals where they defeated the #3 seed Beach Breakers. From there, they went up against the #2 seed, St. John’s, and defeated them to advance to the final match. Unfortunately, they were defeated against another St. Gregory’s team 2-1 in a highly competitive match.
The SMS Gold team won their quarterfinal match against St. Gregory’s last Monday and advanced to the semi-finals last Tuesday against The Williams School. Our girls hung with them the whole way but were defeated in one of the most competitive matches of the year.
Overall, it was a very good season for middle school boys’ soccer and for middle school girls’ volleyball.
