Varsity Boys Basketball:
JV Girls Basketball: Abby W. & Christina R.

Abby has shown herself to be a versatile player. No matter what position she plays, she always strives to do her best. Christina has defensively shined. Her hustle matches her determination to protect the basket. She's not one you want to go head to head with.

Landon, competing in the 132lb weight class went 6-0 on the week and won his final match of the Nandua duals to secure a PC victory!
JV Boys Basketball: Jack M.
Jack lead the team in rebounds both games last week. He has been a great example for his teammates on how to get physical around the rim.
Varsity Boys Basketball: Detrez P.
Detrez is the perfect representative of a student athlete at PC. Detrez comes to practice every day with a positive attitude and a can-do work ethic that really shows his maturation as a person and a player. Detrez played a key role in Saturday's game against Indian River by scoring 6 points and grabbing 6 rebounds. Detrez scored the go ahead basket with 7 seconds left to give PC the lead. It's a pleasure to coach Detrez. Congratulations Detrez!
JV Girls Basketball: Izzy B.
The girls have had some obstacles to overcome, but Izzy, though not feeling 100%, gave her all to assist pushing the lady knights for a win over WCA.
PC Knights had three dual meets on Saturday in an invitational with Bishop Sullivan, Greenbrier Christian and Norfolk Collegiate. We were down a few very key swimmers because of the OLMC confirmation retreat but combined, PC squeaked out a win against Greenbriar Christian and Norfolk Collegiate. Individually, our men's team beat Norfolk Collegiate and our women's team beat Greenbrier Christian.
Boys Swimming: Matt D.
for consistently swimming the 500 free to earn points for the team at every dual meet.
Girls Swimming: Paula Ann R.

Wrestling: Galilee K.
Galillee won his 3rd career State Catholic championship. Galilee was also recognized as the tournament’s most outstanding wrestler!

JV Boys Basketball: Matt M.

Varsity Boys Basketball: Joey D.
Joey's attitude and effort in practice and games has been the perfect example of the kind of leadership we are looking for on our team. Joey's hard work was on full display in a conference win at Greenbrier Christian last week. Joey accounted for 3 points and 6 rebounds, but his value was not fully shown in the stat line. Joey continued his trend of working hard inside against bigger, stronger competition. Joey dove for loose balls, boxed out on a regular basis, took a charge, and ended the game with a bloody nose. Joey continues to do everything the coaching staff asks of him on a daily basis. Congratulations Joey!

Boys Swimming: Aaron K.
As Captain, Aaron not only helped lead PC to a third place finish at the Walsingham Meet, he also helped his relay team make a state cut as well as get his bonus 50 free state cut.

Girls Swimming: Beth M.
Beth stepped out of her comfort zone and earned points for the 100 fly at the Walsingham Meet and helped lead the girls team at the Norfolk Academy Meet.

Earning All the Merits of Scouting

Posted On: 1/9/2018 10:22 AM

article by Scott Degnon, Scout Master for Colonial Virginia troop 242


PC freshman and Life Scout William Robertson from Troop 242 in Newport News  recently accomplished a goal which  fewer than eighteen Boy Scouts per year nationwide complete-- earning all 137 merit badges currently available.
During a November Court of Honor, where he was presented with his two final Merit Badges, William talked about goals and devotion in life. He set the goal of earning all merit badges when he was still a Cub Scout. William believes devotion is a key point in all of our lives. "Without devotion and commitment, we would not go anywhere with our goals," he said.
William would love to see each scout in his troop achieve their most important goals in life. "This is only possible with devotion and not giving up. Every scout encounters obstacles in his  family, school, athletics, and time." His message to all scouts is "to not let the fire that you start off with and the devotion that you start off with die out. If that fire dies out it is hard to get back onto the road. Do not let your momentum slow and keep up the hard work. If you make a goal you can achieve it with hard work and never giving up."

Girls Volleyball: Grace H.
Grace help lead the Lady Knights to their 3rd consecutive Conference Championship last week. She ended the week with 20 kills, 31 digs, 3 blocks, 2 aces, and a 98% passing rating with only 5 receiving errors in 3 matches.

Baileigh E.- 1st Team All-Conference and Conference Tournament MVP
Anna D.- 1st Team All-Conference and Conference All-Tournament
Jade A.- 2nd Team All-Conference and Conference All- Tournament

The Lady Knights XC team finished 7th overall with some great performances.
Girls Varsity XC--Lauren T.
Lauren earned All Conference Honors this past Friday at the TCIS Championships. Despite being ranked 24th going into the meet, Lauren finished 12th overall. She ran a confident and competitive race from the beginning and finished strong beating out competition that had beaten her in a previous race.

Girls JV XC--Cassie M.
Running her first race in five weeks, Cassie came back with a vengeance. Despite the long rehab from injury, she tackled the TCIS course to run her best in support of her teammates. Her efforts paid off, finishing as the team’s number 6 runner.

The Knights faced stiff competition from Norfolk Academy at TCIS. In the first mile Norfolk Academy charged ahead of us. But just as they've done all season, the Knights ran smarter, harder races than their competition, passing everyone in the end, and packed four runners into the top fifteen to take first place in the race. Andrew V. took home the individual championship and he, along with Thomas H., Aaron K. and Matthew M., received all-conference honors.






Varsity Boys XC--Patrick Gillian, who anchored the team as the fifth man.
Our top four outpaced our competition, but the way cross country is scored is that the lowest score wins, and there was a big gap after our fourth man. With 2/3rds of the race to go, there were enough runners ahead of our fifth man that we very well might have lost. But Patrick closed that gap, catching two runners from Norfolk Academy and a slew of runners from other schools, saving the day and helping secure the victory.

JV Boys XC--The JV team easily took first place in the JV race, led by JV athlete of the week Rahmin Norwood.
When Rahmin came around the corner in hot pursuit of the race leaders, it electrified the crowd, and coach could hear people chanting his name from all the way across the field. His epic 100 meter sprint to the finish line hints at great things to come for this budding running star. The only thing that tops his excellent performance is the excellent backflip he did after the race was over. If you'd like to see it for yourself, just ask any cross country runner who captured it on a cellphone.
