Back and better than ever, the #SBSFamily gathered to celebrate spring sports at Spring Swing!
Friday, April 9, the SBS community came together to celebrate its spring athletes and enjoy beautiful weather-- all while watching America’s favorite pastime! Families with students of all ages found something to enjoy in the parking lot adjacent to the baseball field
. From inflatables, to food trucks, to great ball games, it was an evening to remember.
The day’s energy was sparked at lower school carpool as senior athletes greeted younger students to school on this exciting Friday. Followed by a visit to lunch, the excitement continued with an upper school pep rally. For the evening events, our JV baseball, varsity softball and varsity baseball teams all played incredible games. Both of the varsity teams won in two close and exciting match ups. The women won 8 to 7 against St. John’s and the men won 3 to 2 against Lutheran South Academy.
According to head softball coach Brandy Mardis, this year’s team is unified and determined, “Our team is playing well and really clicking on all cylinders. We have great leadership from our seniors and upperclassmen. In addition, the girls are having fun, working hard and seeing it pay off.”
