What a fall season it has been! The Eagles have soared in the playoffs with both volleyball and football teams making it to the final four and cross country coming away with a top ten medal in the state.
According to Director of Athletics Mike Walker, this has been one of the most exciting and successful seasons in school history. “Our teams accomplished many victories on and off the field. I am proud of our coaches and athletes and the work they put in to represent SBS in athletic competition. God brought us some exceptional coaches who created an environment where student athletes worked hard, played together and demonstrated what it means to be an Eagle.” Walker adds, “Thank you to our SBS community for supporting our teams -- what a great time to be an Eagle.”
After a successful fall season, our SBS football team is moving forward to face Dallas Christian at Waco ISD Stadium in the Division II State Championship game
, the first trip to the finals since winning a state title in 1999. We are ready to cheer the Eagles on to victory!
“I’m excited for the whole team, especially the seniors,” said Head Football Coach Terry Pirtle. “They’ve come so close to a state title, reaching the semifinals four years in a row. This season, they played some tough games, which strengthened them.” He added, “Our defense is amazing. They’re well-coached by our defensive staff, and they play hard.” Read more about the football semi-final game from the Houston Chronicle.

This whole season was a learning experience, and it was so worth it in the end.”
