2018 National Champions!
When Coach Edie was asked by questionnaire why FEAST was attending nationals, she was given several choices from experiencing a great tourney to winning some games to here to win. She checked the box, “Here to win.” And that is just what they did. In fact, this amazing team only dropped one set in this 3-day tournament, and that was in the championship match which FEAST won in 4. On top of a national championship, FEAST won many of the top awards. Gulf Coast all-region team: Kate McCaslin (16u), Addie Force (16u) Laura Johnson, Mahri Hollins, Sidney Miller, Paxton Kidwell, and Elizabeth Au. Each of these girls also had the honor of playing in an all-star game with other regional all-tournament winners from around the country. National All-tournament team: Sydney Bowen, Sidney Miller, Laura Johnson, Paxton Kidwell, and Elizabeth Au. FEAST swept the junior top honors awards as well. Sidney Miller was named the offensive player of the year, Paxton Kidwell was the defensive player of the year, and Liz Au was named Player of the Year. Way to go Patriots! Thanks for such an exciting year!!
Skills classes will begin January 14. Beginners and intermediate will meet 9-11am. Older intermediate and advanced will meet 10am-12pm. The cost will be $40 per month. Skills classes will run through mid-May. Contact Coach Edie Miller for more information. email@example.com
V IS FOR VOLLEYBALL AND VICTORY!
Our newest Patriots volleyball players are off to such an exciting start. Almost every player is in their first year of Volleyball and many are also on their first official team. They have been working hard over the month in building skills and making connections. Their greatest strides occurred in the Shepherd of the Hills tournament at Lutheran High School September 7–8, where our MS B team split into 2 to help fill a space left by a team that dropped. Our girls played in 9 games instead of the guaranteed 4. These girls are improving at an incredible rate but nothing can even quantify the quality of friendships they are developing. “I am so proud to see how wonderfully they support each other on and off the court,” states head coach, Edie Miller.
Our middle school A team has a mix of first-time players to seasoned players. They, too, have been working hard building skills, learning transitions & new positions, and communicating plays. Our pre-season games consisted of 2 wins against San Marcos Panthers and Shepherd of the Hills. The A-team took 5th place overall at the tournament on Sept 7-8. To date, the A team is undefeated in our district play! We’ve had wins over Atonement, St Mary’s Hall, SACS, Geneva, Concordia, & TMI. What an exciting season this has been so far! We are looking forward to finishing out strong!
This year FEAST Volleyball has been blessed to add a JV2 team. Watching God build and grow this team in miraculous leaps and bounds has been a privilege for the coaches! Our girls’ hearts, determination & passion for the game are very big! Our first match against the Lion’s was an exciting nail-biter that ended in a close 3 set loss. This is a “first-time” volleyball team experience for half of our players and we couldn’t be prouder of our beautiful girls!
The JV volleyball team is really off to a strong start! With each game, they are improving their court skills, as well as their team communication skills. They look forward to continuing their growth through the rest of the season!
Varsity continues to play strong. They finished 3rd in the championship bracket at the Devine tournament with Liz Au being named to the all-tournament team! Two weekends later, they stepped up their game in the Lutheran High School Tournament by claiming the championship title! The beginning of October, the Patriots went to the Dallas Homeschool State Tournament where they played 7 matches over two days fighting their way to the gold bracket. Of all 7 matches, they only lost 1! However, since it was the first match of day 2, that immediately meant the best they could place was 5th. And that is what they did! While their record at state is impressive, even more, important was the fact that referees and coaches alike continually came to our coaches and parents and let us know how much they enjoyed watching/ reffing our girls. They were graciously complimenting our girls for their attitudes, joy, and teamwork. And that is one of the most important aspects of our program! These amazing young ladies continue to work hard, face difficult challenges, and grow in the Lord as they strive to become the best they can be.
The FEAST Patriot Pass is NOT required to participate in any skills camps.
