Swimming
The Wyverns’ upstart swim team wrapped up its season at the State Tournament last weekend. Paige Von Feldt finished 27th in the 50 Free with a personal best time to end what has been a great season.  Congrats to Paige and the rest of the Wyverns on a fabulous first season.

Track & Field Update
The first home Middle School track meet is scheduled for Wednesday, March 18th at 4:30 p.m.  Volunteers are needed to ensure we run an efficient meet.  Email Coach Cowherd if interested in helping. Lower School Track for 1st-4th grades will start in early April.  Detailed information such as practice times, meet schedule, and other information will be sent out soon.

The Newest Spring Sport – Baseball!
It is with great pleasure that the Athletic Department announces the formation of the first St. Francis baseball team on the Goshen Campus.  The team is made up of 5th – 7th grade students who have expressed an interest in playing the sport. The team will play eight to 10 games in their inaugural season against other independent school teams.  Practices are twice a week and games will begin later in March.  Be on the lookout for the schedule, which will be released soon.
