Second Baptist School basketball teams soar at this year’s Flight Night!
On Friday, January 17, the Second Baptist School community came together to support and celebrate winter sports.
This chilly Friday morning was instantly warmed up by senior athletes welcoming lower school students in carpool. In addition, these athletes re-visited their fans during lunch, signing autographs and taking photos. The entire school gathered for it’s first all-school pep rally of 2020 and it was certainly one for the books! Between possibly the longest game of knock-out the E Gym has seen to date, to lip sync battles between teachers of every grade level, this pep rally was entertaining and memorable for all. Basketball, soccer and swim teams were celebrated and our varsity and JV cheerleaders and Golden Girls performed. School spirit permeated the air!
The seventh grade girls basketball team defeated Awty International School 23-8. The JV men played a competitive and tight game against the Westbury Christian and ended up losing in a close one, 68-78. Eighth grade girls defeated Awty as well, 66-7.
In between games and during halftimes, families made their way out to the E Gym parking lot to enjoy delicious food trucks, while students were sure to make a pit stop at the face painting station to show their Eagle spirit.
The varsity men played an intense and hard-fought game against Westbury Christian. The final score was 47-88.
In between the two varsity games, the EABC Junior Eagles made their way across the court with light up pom poms. In addition, 60+ future Golden Girls showed off their dancing talent for the annual Lower School Golden Girls Clinic performance.
The varsity women played an impressive game against Westbury Christian as well. Our Eagles defeated them 71-31.
