This year’s Knights football team is looking forward to a great season with experienced players returning and a lengthy roster of others excited to make a difference on the field. The Knights have fifteen seniors, including All District players Caden Dickinson and Howell Eglin to lead the team, pushing themselves and others to do their best. We are gearing up for some exciting extras to boost fan spirit including First In Night on September 1st, recognizing first responders and members of the military. (Don’t miss the chance to check out the fire truck donated by the state of Louisiana to New York after the events of September 11th - it will be on hand to mark this occasion!) In addition, the other home games will host events like Fall Sports Appreciation Night, Junior Cheer Night featuring our youngest Knights supporters, Homecoming, and Senior Night.
The girls’ volleyball team has already taken to the court under the leadership of our new Head Coach, Madeline Gugich, who joined Episcopal after five years at Zachary High School. Madeline leads a team that has come together with excitement and skill. Look for seniors Femke Maassen-Veeters, Emily Mendoza, and junior Gracie Veillion to make a big impact throughout the year.
The Episcopal swim teams look to make waves this season with their eyes on the city and state meets. Boys’ team seniors Marcus Botos, Elliott Kellam, Jack Melton and Jackson Sides should make a splash this fall along with Marjie Williams and Lindsey Weinstein on the girls’ team, who hope to keep last year’s state runner up momentum going.
As always, the Episcopal cross country crew has high expectations for a great season. The first event of the new season is set for September 2nd at West Feliciana and then all eyes will be on Highland Road Park September 9th for the 39th Annual Episcopal Round Table Run. This fun event even features a public fun run if you’d like to join in! Look for Graham Frazier, Kenny Schafer, Adele Broussard and Mary Kathryn Underwood to set some fast times throughout the season.
A big thank you to all of our committed coaches and staff; these folks spend countless hours and commit 100% to our students and their development. We take great pride in providing our students a range of athletic opportunities to enhance their academic experiences here at Episcopal.
We invite all of you to join us in cheering on our student athletes this year.

Parking for football games.
Lot 18, behind the concession stand is closed due to construction and the lane and parking spaces immediately off the stadium bleachers will be closed to thru traffic. Those spaces will be reserved for handicapped tag parking, our security and medical staff working the game, referees, visiting team buses and equipment trailers, and our coaches’ families. The driving lane nearest the Main Gym will serve as a two way lane to enter and exit our parking lot, with a turn around being achieved by driving through to the baseball lot and making the loop. You are welcome to park along Woodland Ridge, but please be mindful of our neighbors.
