SGHS Weekly Athletic News


The field hockey team was all smiles after a great win at Summit Academy early this week. 


We are so excited for another great year of Gator Athletics! 

Thank you to all who attended the Athletics Parents’ Meeting on August 23. The presentation and handbook will be available on the resource board soon. 


The fall teams have jumped into regular season games this week and the coaches are so excited for the promise of what’s to come from the Gators! Field hockey opened up with a loss at Saint Anne’s Belfield but rebounded with a great win at Summit Academy. Varsity volleyball traveled to Walsingham Academy and came home with a convincing 3-0 victory to start the season. The JV and Varsity tennis teams faced Walsingham Academy on Tuesday, August 27 and St. Catherine’s on Thursday, August 29. JV tennis defeated WA on Tuesday, 5-4, while the varsity team dropped a close match to the home team. Both squads fell short against St. Catherine’s. JV volleyball will open it’s season of games next week and Cross Country, who has joined up with the Cadets at Benedictine, will have another week of training before their first race on Saturday, September 7. 

Join our team! We are looking for volunteers for our Revamped Gator Shop and Concessions Stands at Saint Gertrude and at the SGHS Outdoor Athletic Center. Please sign up to volunteer at home volleyball games or home tennis and field hockey games. Links to the signup genius are here:
