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.
