Once again, the spring sports teams for St. Pius completed a great week of performances by good, consistent play.
The boys’ soccer team dominated Towers and the boys’ and girls’ tennis teams played Athens Academy, where the boys lost a close match and the girls came away with a solid victory. The boys’ golf team was also in action, playing in the champion’s tournament at Settindown Creek Golf club.
The week began very well for the soccer program, as the boys team blew out Towers 10-0. The team was led by great play from senior Elon commit Alex Kowalski and seniors Tyler Alexander and Ryan Heard as well.
The boys have played outstandingly in the 2013 season, and have lived up to the standard of championship teams in the past.
The team has not suffered a loss thus far, and looks to maintain that success through upcoming games against Blessed Trinity and Carrollton.
For the St. Pius tennis programs, the boys suffered a minor bump in the road while the girls’ team took care of business against an extremely talented Athens Academy squad.
On Tuesday, the team travelled to Athens, where the boys lost three of their five matches, and the girls took control, winning four of their five.
Up next for both teams will be a match against Wesleyan School on April 10.
One of the most prestigious tournaments of the year for the boys golf team, is the “Champion’s” tournament hosted by St. Pius at Settindown Creek. The tournament involved five teams: Marist, St. Pius, Gainesville, Cambridge, and Westminster.
A talent-filled field awaited the Golden Lions. Among the golfers on Wednesday were Westminster senior Trip H’Doubler, who has committed to play college golf at Missouri, Jack Larkin, a junior at Marist who will play his college golf for the Georgia Bulldogs, and Jackson Heazel, who will play at Baylor in the fall.
Gainesville won Wednesday’s event, with Westminster following shortly behind. The St. Pius team came in fourth despite a very good showing from the team.
Due to many great athletes and college commits from the 2013 spring sports teams, St. Pius is expecting to complete a banner year. With the soccer teams at the top of the state, and the tennis and golf teams performing very well, St. Pius looks to be in contention for another Director’s Cup.
