Despite the challenges presented by 2020, Episcopal athletes and coaches are putting together incredible seasons. The teams are giving it their all even during times of uncertainty. Congratulations to our fall athletes for accomplishing so much! Go Knights!
The boys and girls both brought home the Class 2A state championship titles again this year! The boys team for the 25th year in a row! For our girls team, Callie Hardy earned the 2020 Individual LHSAA Cross Country State Champion title and Scarlett Spender was the State Runner Up!
The Episcopal swimmers had a great state meet with the girls team finishing as the Division III State Runner Up and the boys splashing in at fifth. Both teams celebrated impressive results and even some record-setting finishes, courtesy of Eugene Jiang in the Division III 50 and 100 meter freestyle events.
