The Eagle boys basketball team pushed its way into a 3-way tie for 1st place as they enter into the 2nd round of district play this Friday.
Savio beat the visiting Regents Knights in a hard-fought battle that wasn't decided until the last few minutes, 54-47. The Eagles' only district loss came against Hyde Park Academy and they visit The Nest this Friday with a district championship on the line.
We are hoping for a loud and intense crowd to dress in their Savio colors and bring their high-level energy to the battle.
Our Freshmen and JV, having a great year, also have much at stake in this key battle so come loud, be proud and help bring the victory!
Go Savio !!

GO SAVIO !!
Though spring weather seems distant, one of Savio’s most exciting spring teams is slated to begin its season in the upcoming week. On January 18, Savio baseball took the field for the first time since last May for the first official practice of the 2016 season.
Head Coach Bryan Edwards and his veteran assistant Clifton Cryer have eagerly awaited the start of practices. In his inaugural season last year, Coach Edwards led the team to its second consecutive bi-district finals playoff appearance, falling only after a hard-fought 7-0 loss to the eventual state champions, Lutheran South Academy. Most of the team’s letter-winners and four of last year’s all-district selectees are returning as upperclassmen, spearheaded by a vibrant senior class boasting Kayne Gonzalez, Eddie Greiner, Patrick Lahey, Tanner Martinez, Simon Scales, and Marty Sedlacek.
2016 will mark the first year that the program features both a varsity and junior varsity team. The addition of a secondary squad reflects the program’s ability to attract and develop new baseball players among the school’s population. Coach Cory Patton will join the coaching staff and work with the team’s hitters and outfielders. Coach Patton played for the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers organizations in his 10-year professional career, accumulating over 3000 at-bats with a lifetime batting average of .279 and 130 homeruns. His hitting expertise is a welcome addition to a program looking to increase its offensive production.
At the first team meeting Coach Edwards expressed his confidence and optimism for the upcoming season and burgeoning program. On the long-term goal of winning a state championship, senior Marty Sedlacek remarked, “It’s only a matter of time. Maybe 4 months at most.”
The Eagles kick their season off with a home-opener against St. John XXIII on Saturday, February 13th at 1:00 PM.
Fighting through a series of injuries last week, the Savio Eagles went 1-1.
Savio lost to San Marcos Home School 70-75 in a fast-paced game then went on the road on Friday to defeat the Smithville Tigers 67-60 in a hard-fought battle. This runs the Eagles season record to 18-7 and they are ranked #15 in the TAPPS large school division.
The Eagles open district play Tuesday night on the road against a tough Hyde Park squad. This will be the first of eight contests in district 3-AAAA to determine who will represent our district in the state playoffs.
Please show your support, come early, stay late, be loud and help the Eagles back to the state playoffs!
The Savio Eagle boys have gone on a strong winning run, with the jump-start initiated by the tough 69-59 victory over the Eagle Alumni (in white), representing the classes of 2012-15. We thank all the alumni and fans for coming out for a fiesty rivalry game!
SAVIO ALUMNI TEAM (2012-2015)
Since that victory, the Eagles have clicked off six more victories including a tournament championship at Fredericksburg. The Eagles have been 8-0 over their past two tournaments. Logan Blow, Jacob Kilburn, Ben Wagner and Mark Lacayo have received special recognition for their tournament play this season.
The victory over Lampasas this past Saturday helped Savio run its record to 17-6 and has them state-ranked in the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches large private school rankings.
The Eagles will be at home Tuesday night against perennial nemesis San Marcos Home School who comes to town sporting a 20-6 record and victories over the last two years against the home-town team. Please, come early and be loud to motivate the Eagles to another victory!
