At home versus UHigh
The Knights golfers are off to a solid start already this season. Head Coach James McCrary says “the girls' team won their season-opening match with a dominant performance from Sophia Macias and an awesome showing from Suzie Heneghan coming in third individually to give the team a 13 stroke victory.” The boys' team has already celebrated a first place finish, two second place finishes and one third place finish, with junior Beau Box getting his first individual win just last week.
The golfers are preparing for the upcoming Metro Tournament to be held at Beaver Creek Golf Course. The boys play on April 13th and the girls take to the course on April 20th. Before that, the teams will compete in the postponed Mardi Gras Classic over the Easter holiday.
Track & Field
There is much anticipation for this spring’s season among those in the Episcopal track & field program. “We are really excited about this upcoming outdoor season coming off of a very successful indoor season where the boys finished as state champions and the girls finished as runner-up,” says Head Coach Claney Duplechin.
The Knights are led by senior girls Callie Hardy, Tanya Mencer and Bethany Reid, and senior boys Ryan Armwood, Adam Azmeh, Abhay Basireddy, Tucker Harrell, Ethan Hook, Oliver Jack, Evan Jurkovic, Dylan Mehrotra, Ben Naquin, Peyton Pontif, Tristen Rigby, Jack Safer, Allen Stewart, Austin Sybrandt and Grant Treadaway.
After a runner-up finish for the girls and a third place finish for the boys at the Catholic High Tip Off meet, the Knights hosted the Episcopal Relays this week. Our boys dominated the meet in finishing in first place and the girls finished a close second. The team will also host the annual EHS/Josten’s meet on Thursday, April 8th. Make sure to come out and celebrate one of the oldest meets in the city!
Athletic Event Attendance
I encourage all Episcopal students, parents, and fans to come out and support Knights athletics this spring season! Phase 3 and outdoor sports allow much more latitude regarding attendance. This means you can join us for these spring athletic events. The sun is out, the weather is great, and the view of watching our athletes play the sport they love is priceless.
