Week of October 10

The boys soccer team finished up their season under the lights at the Charlotte Christian School field playing a tough Country Day team. At half the score was 1-0. It was a full team effort and everyone had a good game. Even though the boys lost, the improvement from the first game to the last was tremendous. The goalies played well today. The midfielders worked hard on offense and defense and our strikers had some good chances. Great job Knights!

The MS girls played amazing in the 2nd round of playoffs but sadly came up just short, losing 4-5 to Country Day. No. 1 Kate Champion played one of her best matches as she beat her opponent 8-5. At No. 6, Karalyn King pulled off a big win in a tiebreaker, 9-8 (9-7). The other two wins came from Kate and Tanvi Prabhu at No. 1 doubles and Vaishnavi Divyakola and Karalyn at No. 6 doubles. In exhibition play, Taylor Purcell won her match 8-6. The girls learned a lot, improved so much, and had fun this season. Way to go, Knights! Great job this season!

Leading the way for the men was the trio of Javon Taylor, Stevie Parker & Cooper Wozniak who only spanned 21 seconds. The ladies were equally successful with their win over the rest of the conference. #4-9 runners ran as a very strong pack as they were only separated by 47 seconds.  Our top 3 ladies of Lily Yampolsky, Jenna Peterson & Caroline Peterson continued to look strong. The team also had 13 new personal records & another 3 new season's bests. Great effort team! Go Knights!
