Congratulations to Nan Kerner on being our December Gator of the Month!
It was no rest for the weary for the Varsity basketball team over the Christmas break, as the squad participated in the RTD Tournament on December 12/20-23, as well as the Gator Christmas Classic on 12/27-12/28. The Gators finished 7th in the RTD tournament and 2nd in the Gator Christmas Classic, but played some excellent competition and challenged themselves. The JV team played at tough CVHAA squad in the Gator Christmas Classic but couldn’t get the win. Both teams earned conference victories on Tuesday, January 7th at Veritas School. On Friday January 10 the Varsity team traveled up to Saint John Paul for a double header with the Cadets from BCP! The Gators came away with a solid win, 77-46.
The Swim headed back into the pool on Friday January 10th in a meet with various other schools at Swim RVA. The Gators were led by Sophomore, Audrey Lewis who finished 2nd in the 100 free, 3rd in the 100 breaststroke and anchored the relays of Molly Sproull, Vivian Upchurch and Emily Czaja to 4th place finishes in the 200 free relay and 200 medley! Other top performances came from Molly Sproull who finished 3rd in the 100 free and Emily Czaja who finished 3rd in the 100 backstroke! The team also finished 7th overall in the State Catholic Meet on Saturday, January 11.
The Indoor track team was back in action, heading to Liberty University for a meet tomorrow, Saturday, January 10. The meet was highlighted by three new school records! Mary Kehoe set a new school record in the 1600m with a time of 5:35.91, which was enough for a 15th place finish in this competitive meet. The 4 x 200 relay team of Lauren Horan, Madeline Tuckley, Rebecca Peppers and Leah Bishop set a new school record with a time of 1:57.18 and a 19th place finish.
