Spring Sports Recap 2022

Second Baptist School concludes a successful year of athletics with a solid spring sports season.
The best way to end a year of sports is with another state championship! SBS baseball provided the ultimate culmination by securing our thirty-second state title. Moreover, there were momentous accomplishments on the field, diamond, track, court and course throughout the spring.
 
“Thank you to our SBS community for supporting another successful season of athletics,” said Director of Athletics Mike Walker. "What a year it was - one state championship, three state-runner up teams, six trips to the final four and almost every varsity team advanced to at least the regional round of playoffs.” 
 
Looking back on a year of athletic achievement, Mike Walker continued, “Our team of coaches believes that victory on the field is a byproduct of the small victories happening within our culture on a daily basis. We will continue to execute the mission of Second Baptist School with greater and greater intent each year. Congratulations to all our Eagles!" 

Softball
Senior Emma Garcia said, “I am so proud of our softball team. Our new coach, Coach Oz, kept us confident following last year’s winning season, led our team well and established a new and unified softball culture at SBS. With her guidance, we were able to finish in the playoffs as one of the top eight teams.”
