SBS middle school athletics wrapped up a spirit-filled fall sports season with great success!
Director of Middle School Athletics Jeff Schroeder shared, “It was fun to watch the collective efforts of each of our teams and coaches come together over the season.” Come together, they did, setting personal records, playing in competitive semi-final games and winning HJPC championships.
Coach Schroeder continued, “In middle school, we develop athletic fundamentals and enjoy doing that in a team setting. Our coaches are very excited about the foundations we are building and anticipating how these student athletes will contribute to our athletic programs for years to come.”
Highlights of the fall season included football winning the HJPC championship and eighth-grade volleyball securing second place in HJPC. The future is bright for Second Baptist School athletics!

“Middle school cross country was a blast to coach this past season,” Coach Curtis Scipio shared. “We had all our runners set personal records in the district meet! Every week, we improved our times and kept working hard.” In the Woodlands Christian meet, the girls won second overall, another accomplishment for this season’s cross country team.
Seventh grade volleyball had two teams competing this year and both groups had a great experience and improved on their skills, according to Coach Schroeder. Eighth grade volleyball had an excellent year led by Coach Heather Kelley, culminating in a runner-up final game in the HJPC championship.
