Fall sports are heating up, so here is a look back at our Eagle athletes and the awesome seasons they have had so far.
“There have been many highlights this season, including blowout wins against St. John's, Concordia and Van Vleck,” said Head Coach Terry Pirtle. “Several athletes played really well, including Josh Johnson ‘20, who was voted the Texas Ford Tough Player of the week for private schools in Texas for his effort vs. St. John's in week two. Currently, the Eagles are ranked number one in private schools in the city of Houston by the Houston Chronicle. We look forward to defending the district title for the seventh consecutive season!”

“The Golden Girls fall season has been in full swing since August 1. They have learned dozens of routines, including two competition dances they will compete with at the TAPPS Championships in January,” said Head Coach Madelyn Whitehead. “Not only are they impressing me as dancers, but also with their hearts for others. They are dedicated to serving their school, one another and the Lord. I could not ask for a better group of young women to coach!”
“It has been an exciting time cheering on the Eagles! The cheerleaders have been busy preparing for this fall athletics season since August,” said Head Coach Andrea Spence. “They attended cheer camp this summer at Biron’s where they polished their tumbling and stunting skills as well as learned a new pep rally routine choreographed by Captain Lindsay Bell ‘20 and McKenna Rodriguez ‘20.” She continued, saying, “The cheer team’s fall responsibilities are supporting our varsity volleyball players at home games, planning and executing a pep rally routine for every home football game, home game halftime performances and traveling to all away varsity football games. A highlight from last week’s football game was being featured on the opening of Click 2 Houston, Friday Football Frenzy!”
