While the smell of autumn is not quite in the air yet here in Houston, the Wolves are off and running! This fall, we are fielding 13 total teams in Middle and Upper School. Our sixth- through eighth-grade athletes are competing in boys’ and girls’ cross country, field hockey, football, and girls’ volleyball. Our coaches and athletes have been working hard to prepare for the season, and we are excited to see each team in action.
Meanwhile, our ninth-grade students are making history as they compete for the school for the first time in the high school ranks! Upper School Wolves are competing in boys’ and girls’ cross country and girls’ volleyball this season. Some highlights:
· Coach Cydryce McMillian and her team won their first high school match in school history on August 28, 2018, when they defeated Briarwood School in three sets, 14-25, 25-19, 17-15.
· Coach Platt and our cross country team have already competed and have begun to lay the ground work for the future of the program by establishing a boys’ and girls’ school record—Katelyn B. recorded a 17:41.0 in her first race, and John K. ran a 15:36.8 at Burroughs Park in Tomball in the 2-mile race.
We are looking forward to a great year in Middle and Upper School athletics and hope to see you at a game soon. Go Wolves!
