“We have been preparing by being mentally focused and working hard in practice, and it’s been about enjoying these last moments with our seniors and this specific team,” Zambie said. “Being grateful for every moment we get on and off the court is driving our competitiveness to really go out there and compete for each other at SPC.”

The team is excited to show up and show out to obtain a championship this week.


Boys Soccer: 

The Boys Soccer team when 4-2-1 in counter play. The team is led by senior captains Matias Zac and Cole Ashley alongside star sophomores, Noah Piper and Liam Fagelman. They are going into SPC as the fifth seed with their first game against the fourth seed The St. John’s School.

“Our expectation is to follow the game plan set by Coach Krauss. Specifically, emphasize our defensive structure and effort,” Fagelman said. “If we stick to the plan, the score line should take care of itself.”

The team has been gaining chemistry all year by practicing together, hanging out on weekends and having team dinners. They look to win a hard-fought championship.


Girls Soccer:  

The Girls Soccer team is winless in counter play but are optimistic to do well at SPC. They are the eighth seed going up against The Hockaday School who is the number one seed. The team has dealt with a lot of diversity having their star players junior Devin Davis and the team’s only senior Helen Jackson injured.

“We plan to give them a run for their money. Our ESD [Episcopal School of Dallas] game and Trinity Valley games were close, and we had last minute goals when our opponents got complacent,” said Jackson. “Don’t count us out until the whistle blows.”

They look to upset The Hockaday School in round one and continue to win an SPC championship.



The Greenhill boys and girls swimming teams finished their regular season with a sweep of Oakridge School, Fort Worth Country Day and Cistercian Preparatory School on January 26.
