The Postseason Begins
As the school year comes to an end, so do the spring sports seasons. Christ School baseball, lacrosse, golf, and track and field look to complete career years with deep postseason runs.
The varsity baseball team earned the #5 seed on Sunday and will enter the playoffs with a 18-3 record, going undefeated in the CAA Conference. They will host North Raleigh Christian Academy (11-10) on Tuesday, May 9 at 4:00 p.m. This game, against a team that has gone undefeated 8-0 in their conference, will determine whether the Greenies play against Providence Day School on either Friday or Saturday. The state semi-finals would be on May 16, with the state championship held the following weekend in Raleigh.
The Greenies had six of the thirteen All Conference players, as well as the Conference Player of the Year. McKinley Bell '18, Jackson Hipp '18, Hunter Macomber '19, Mike Reynolds '17, and Max LeCroy '18 were five of those CAA All-Conference performers. William Fleming '17, who hit .575 on the season and had a .77 ERA on the mound, was named Conference Player of the Year. All-State award recipients will be named next week.
The Christ School lacrosse team has faced its toughest schedule in school history. The Greenies have rolled through 3A opponents on their way to a perfect 7-0 record in state play. For their last regular season contest, lacrosse heads to Charlotte on Tuesday, May 9 to face Charlotte Country Day. With a win, the Greenies would earn the right to play all three playoff games at home, including the State Championship game on May 20. Their most likely opponent would be Providence Day, who the Greenies narrowly defeated 13-12 nearly a month ago in a back-and-forth battle. The Greenies have had the #1 state ranking for the entirety of the spring season, and are not looking to give it up with just two weeks remaining in the season. Eight teams from across the state will go head-to-head in the playoffs, with the first playoff games being held on Saturday, May 13. The second game will be Tuesday, May 16, and the final game will be Saturday, May 20.
Seniors Riley Smith '17, Joey Cinque '17, Will Iorio '17, Jonah Roberts '17 and junior Hunter Vines '18 were named to the All-Conference lacrosse team. All-State performers will be decided next week.
Varsity golf graduated five All-Conference performers last season, but even with the turnover they have remained at the top of the CAA leaderboard. Greenies are heading into the State Championship this year as CAA Conference Champions. Carson Ownbey '18 was named Conference Co-Player of the Year and Kellen Graham '18, Cameron Akers '20, Davis Oliver '17, and Hank Pritchard '19 were all named to the All-Conference team. Christ School finished second to Cannon School at the State Championship last year, and will match up with them again in a 36-Hole event at the Country Club of Whispering Pines in Pinehurst, NC on May 15 and 16.
The Varsity track and field team has experienced one of its most successful seasons in school history and heads into the championship season with high hopes. Not only have the Greenies won every CAA meet so far this season, but in April they won the Buncombe County Meet for the first time in school history. The Greenies track team has set school records this season in the 400m, 4x100m, and 4x200m, and we expect a record or two to fall in the next two weeks. The Greenies will compete in the CAA Championships this Wednesday, May 10 at Asheville School before heading to Winthrop University for the 3A State Championship Friday, May 19 and Saturday, May 20.
As many as twenty of our athletes have automatically qualified for the state meet next week, with our 4x100 and 4x200 teams ranked 1st heading into the meet. Our 4x400 and 4x800 are ranked among the top in the state as well. Sophomore Kevin Snyder '19 looks to repeat as State Long Jump Champion, though he is currently battling some foot injuries. Four Christ School discus throwers are ranked among the top 20 in the state as well.
Finally, despite their 9-1 record this year and Co-Conference CAA championship, the varsity tennis team did not qualify for the 3A NCISAA Playoffs. They did, however, have three players named All Conference: Stephen Saye '18, Will Rasco '18, and Brian Li '18.
