Before we get too far into the winter sports season, we want to recognize our student athletes’ accomplishments for our fall sports season. St. Patrick High School wrapped up another successful fall sports season with our annual awards banquet on December 3. The biggest highlight of the season was our football team finishing the regular season with an undefeated record and an overall 12-1 record as the 8-man football Division II state runner up. Our football team finished as state runner up two of the last three years. We would like to congratulate all our teams for their efforts throughout this fall sports season! A lot of time and hard work was put forth in the gym, on the field and of course in the classroom by our student athletes.
As previously mentioned, the Shamrock football team had a strong season winning a regional championship trophy and advancing to the state final. Individual honors include:
Ned Smith: All-State Honorable Mention running back/defensive line
Zach Spitzley: Portland Beacon Athlete of the Month for November
Tyler Coyne: Tim Chamberlain Award
John Schneider: Bishop Baraga Award
The varsity volleyball team had another solid season finishing 5th place in the league in a very strong Central Michigan Athletic Conference (CMAC). They finished second in the silver bracket at the Dansville Invitational. Individual awards include:
Samee Teachworth: 1st team CMAC and Aquinas College Volleyball Commitment
Mya Luna: 2nd team CMAC and school record for 233 serving aces in her career
Olivia Fogarty: Honorable Mention CMAC
Ally Florian: Honorable Mention CMAC
Our cross country program was unable to field a girls’ or boys’ team, but we did have a solid group of runners representing our school’s cross country program. Individual honors include:
Cozette (Cozie) Brown: 2nd team CMAC, school record holder and medaled in four invitationals and Portland Beacon Student Athlete of the Month for October. She is the first female runner in school history to qualify for the state meet, finishing 75th in Division IV out of 238 runners.
Our JV volleyball team finished with an overall record of 21-7-5 and brought home a trophy for winning the gold bracket at the Perry Invitational. Our freshman volleyball team had a successful season showing much growth and finishing with an overall record of 10-8-4.
As a Catholic School, we expect our student athletes to represent our school in a positive manner, bringing Christ to everything they do, and making us proud with their sportsmanship. Without a doubt, they have done so in what turned out to be an extremely successful fall sports season. Our high school student athletes did an excellent job representing our school mission statement: We Pray! We Learn! We Achieve!
