Saturday offered Christ School varsity lacrosse one last chance to fine-tune things for the NCISAA Division I state playoffs. The Greenies did not flinch after a less than ideal start at Durham Academy.
Jamal Hutchison ‘23 was playing as well as anyone on the course Tuesday after making the turn onto the back-nine of Bright’s Creek Golf Club in Mill Spring, N.C.
Grant Haldeman ‘21 has never scored better in his varsity career for Christ School. Together, their rounds and all-conference performances from Andrew Graham ’21 and Charles Howden ‘22 added up to another Carolinas Athletic Association championship for the Greenies.
Conditions were not favorable for tennis Wednesday, which proved to be a brisk afternoon.
Christ School varsity tennis made its own luck, winning for the fifth time in the team’s last six matches. The Greenies swept singles to clinch an 8-1 rout of Rabun Gap (Ga.) across the Betsy Harris McCullough Tennis Courts.
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.
