Winter Sports Recap

Look back at our 2021-2022 SBS winter sports season!
Second Baptist School teams finalized their winter season with district and area championships, state playoff games and strong team spirit. 
 
Director of Athletics Mike Walker comments, "We had high expectations for the winter season, and I’m proud of our programs for fulfilling those expectations. We knew early on that all of our teams had a legitimate chance of getting to state this year, and looking back, I think we did a great job striving to reach that level.” He added, “So much of this season’s success is a result of coaches pouring into our student-athletes both athletically and spiritually. I’m grateful for their hard work, both on the field and as mentors to our athletes."
