All-State and All-District are post-season awards presented by TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) in all divisions of every sport.  TAPPS is the state athletic association of private and parochial schools that Savio belongs to. Coaches from every TAPPS school nominate their individual athletes from their teams that they believe deserve recognition.  Recently, TAPPS held All-State and All-District meetings allowing coaches to select certain players to first team, second team, or honorable mention based on their season performances and season-ending statistics. 

Congratulations to the following St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School soccer players who were elected by the opposing coaches for All-District honors.  Five Savio seniors, who helped lead Savio through this record breaking season with an undefeated record in district play for the first time, made first team All-District:

Santiago Sustaeta (Offense)
Cian McGetrick (Midfield)
Preston Noonan (Midfield)
Patrick Miles (Defense)
Cory Cady (Goalie).  Along with the Savio defense, Cory set multiple goal keeping school records this season as well.

Freshman Nathan French, with 17 goals during the season, was also selected as All-District, and voted top offensive player in the District, and was also selected as Honorable Mention All-State.

Junior Kyle Gonsalvez, Freshman Brendan Mazzurana, and Seniors Mitch Romero and Cameron Henry were selected to second team All-District.  Christopher Gonzalez, Joseph Figliozzi and Luc Nguyen were selected as Honorable Mention All-District.

TAPPS also honors junior and senior athletes who have demonstrated both athletic and academic (3.5 grade point or higher) excellence in their sport through the Academic All State award.  Savio had five student athletes selected for this award among the boys soccer team:

Seniors: Cameron Henry, Cian McGetrick, Mitchell Romero, and Patrick Miles

as well as Junior: Kyle Gonsalvez.


Congratulations to the recipients on these well deserved honors, and to the whole Savio Boys Soccer team for a fantastic season, their best ever.

On Wednesday, March 22, the Savio Personal Finance class visited Per Stirling, an investment advisory firm, and spoke with a Certified Financial Planner about investing, risks, and wealth management. 

Students built upon their prior knowledge about investing money, and took away some valuable lessons and resources about managing a portfolio. They were also engaged in discussions about different philosophies on investing, participated in an experiment demonstrating market efficiency, and asked pertinent questions about the CFP profession and wealth management. These lessons are important as we continue to form our students into successful servant leaders in the image of Christ.

Savio Wins 20th Annual HP Codewars Competition

March 07, 2017

Hewlett Packard has been hosting a large computer science tournament in Austin for the last twenty years.  Believed to be one of the top tournaments of the year, the tournament attracts not only all the Austin area high schools, but many top teams from around the state including Dallas, San Antonio, and many surrounding areas. 

Teams of up to three compete in a three hour programming competition in which over twenty problems of various difficulty need to be coded and submitted to be checked against the judges inputs.  Each problem has a different point value, and problems ranged from basic cryptography to complicated maze puzzles. 

Over sixty high school teams competed in the 20th Anniversary of the CodeWars competition. There were two divisions, novice and advanced, and the top five teams in each division were recognized. When the dust settled, the Savio Novice team Giakhanh Hoang, Joel Uong, and Patrick Miles finished fifth. The Savio Advanced team of Emily Shoemaker and Jonathan Shoemaker won 1st place overall, holding off 2nd place LASA and 3rd place Westwood. We earned a nice trophy for our case and bragging rights for the year. 

Congratulations to both of our teams!

Savio Men's Golf Team Captures First Tournament Win; Girls Take Third

February 28, 2017
By Admin

In an historic day for the Savio Eagles, the men's golf team claimed its first-ever tournament victory - or at least a first in a tournament of this magnitude. Savio's Eagles defeated seven other teams at Lakecliff Country Club, while the Lady Eagles held strong for third place among five teams. 

The results were definite improvements over the season's first tournament at River Place Country Club earlier this month. "Their finishes today are definitely a mark of their maturity and ability to bounce back, which is crucial in the game of golf," said Coach Jameson. Added Junior medalist Zach Stewart, "We were focused, determined, pretty calm... and [about winning] I wouldn't say surprised, but excited, and I knew we could pull it off." 

Stewart led the men's team, shooting 80 and earning 6th place medalist honors, while Sophomore Z-Je Marcella followed with 81. For the Lady Eagles, Senior Connor Neill (102) and Junior Shelby Ferraris (103) earned 6th and 7th place medalist honors, respectively. 


The Eagles and Lady Eagles will have plenty of time to sharpen their games prior to their next scheduled tournament - also hosted by Regents - on March 27. 

Savio Beats Fort Worth Christian in Boys Soccer to Advance to Quarterfinals of State Championship

February 26, 2017
By Admin


The Savio boys soccer team continued its record breaking season with a 3-0 win in the second round of the playoffs Saturday against Fort Worth Christian.

Savio opened the scoring 12 minutes into the game. Brendan Mazzurana made a perfect cross from near the corner over the keeper onto an onrushing Santi Sustaeta who headed it in. 

Savio continued to dominate the midfield play all game, but with two goals called back, and a Nathan French shot off a breakaway that hit the crossbar, Savio was still only up 1-0 until midway through the second half, then two more great passes by Brendan led to two more goals by Santi to put the game away.

The shutout, the sixth for Cory Cady and the Savio defense, beat the previous Savio record for most shutouts in a season (5 by Luke Rivas in 2014). Freshman Brendan Mazzurana's three assists also brought his season total within one of the Savio record for most assists. Savio's 3-0 win extended their season record to 15-2, their best year ever, and Savio continues to be ranked #1 in the state among TAPPS Division 2 schools (by Maxpreps).

Savio will play the winner of NE Texas, Bullard Brook Hill, in the Regionals (the quarterfinals of the State Tournament) on Tuesday at 6pm at Robinson High School (south of Waco, TX).  Brook Hill is one of the most successful boys soccer programs in TAPPS history, having reached the state semifinals seven times, and the finals two years ago. It should be a great game!

Go Savio!
