SGHS Weekly Athletics Update

The Varsity Basketball Team was all smiles after a great win over Collegiate on December 4.

The winter sports teams will be recognized with a Pep Rally during lunch on Monday, December 9. There will be music, prizes and games in addition to each winter team being announced. 

Congratulations to Junior Nan Kerner for creating and putting on the first ever Big Assist 3 on 3 Basketball tournament last Saturday, November 30. Teams of Saint Gertrude and Benedictine students competed in basketball games, while other enjoyed contests, food and prizes. Proceeds collected will be donated to The Little Sisters of the Poor as well as each class treasury. Thank you to everyone who came out to support this awesome event! 

The basketball teams had their first regular season games this week after two solid scrimmages. The JV team fell to Collegiate but the Varsity team came back from trailing in the first quarter to earn a convincing, 56-37 win! The JV team will have a chance to bounce back today, Friday, December 6th as they travel to Pocahontas Middle School to take on Spirit. The Swim team will open it’s season today with a Trinity meet held at SwimRVA. The Indoor track team will have its first competition next Friday and Saturday at Christopher Newport University.
