Christ School golfers worked tirelessly in the preseason and have seen it pay off with three consecutive wins. Time will tell if the Greenies can achieve the goal of playing their best when it matters most.
Baseball has returned to Christ School with a bang.
The JV team had a lot to live up to Tuesday, hosting the first on-campus baseball game in nearly two years. And the Greenies gave the home fans what they wanted and more, with all nine starters scoring at least one run in a 18-3 rout of the Greenville (S.C.) Hurricanes.
Christ School tennis players won’t be taking any game, set, or match for granted this season.
Along with track, tennis was one of two sports which never got started in 2020 due to COVID-19. So naturally, head coach Jameel Brenneman said his Greenies are eager for Wednesday’s first varsity match – home against Carolina Day at 4 p.m.
Christ School cross country runners have turned their attention to track at the moment, but their efforts from 2020 have not gone unnoticed in local media.
The Greenies are tied for the most runners (two) on the Asheville Citizen-Times All-Western North Carolina Team, which was announced Thursday. Dawson Reeves ’24 and Jackson Burch ’22 are first-time honorees, while Rocky Hansen ‘23 received honorable mention.
Face-offs are normally a gimme for Christ School lacrosse, all because of Lehigh University recruit Sean Dow ’21.
While that was not the case Tuesday night, Sean still won more (13) than he lost against Hough junior George Kalos, who has committed to North Carolina. The visiting Greenies were the superior team on the scoreboard as well, winning their season opener, 13-7.
Christ School swimming has been steadily progressing the past four years. The proof was in the pool Monday at the NCISAA Division I state meet.
Buoyed by 10 individual qualifiers and three relay teams, the Greenies placed seventh out of 16 teams in the Greensboro Aquatic Center with 127 points. This marks the best team showing for Christ School at the state level since the 2016-17 season.
