Savio Track Breezes Past District Competition, 17 Athletes Continue to Regionals

April 23, 2015
By Admin

The Savio Track Team blew through the District competition at St. Michael's like a passing train. Our athletes placed in every event they entered and seventeen of them placed highly enough to continue through to Regional Competition next week in San Antonio. It was history in the making as the Girls Team took home the school's first-ever District Win in Track and Field!!

Months of commitment to training were evident as athletes performed at their highest levels of the year. From seasoned upperclassmen to young "up-and-comers", the strength of our athletes'  heart, drive, work ethic, and positive spirit shone all across the event. 
Parents, coaches, and administrators in attendance were bursting with pride in our team. Fans gathered around every field and running event and throughout the stadium the navy and gold numbers of the Savio Track community generated good vibes and loud cheering! Even the rain didn't dim the festive spirits of our team and its supporters.
Great sportsmanship was displayed as well, as our athletes joyfully greeted competitors from other teams, shared warm visits with St. Michaels students, politely and confidently conversed with coaches and parents from other schools, and invited competing teams to join in their evening prayer. Our students represented themselves and their school with class and character.
And the best news is, there is more to come!!!
