Spring Athletics Season Recap
Ron Robinson

What a year it has been in athletics! Once again, the students of AOS took to the field, course, diamond, court, and track and demonstrated the grit and determination of a winner. While no team wins every game in athletics, our teams can be proud of the effort they put into their preparation and performance this spring season.

This season, like most, was full of exciting last minute wins, heartbreaking close losses, and a team championship. Regardless of the outcomes, each and every student athlete represented AOS in such a way that makes me proud to be called a Dolphin. On Monday, May 2, we held an awards ceremony to honor our athletes. Click here to see all of our award recipients!

Spring Season Team Recaps

Baseball

Again this year, our baseball team was able to play a 7th and 8th grade schedule. Our boys stayed busy, as players from each grade had to help each other at their games to have enough players. Throughout the season, our boys consistently played well and improved each game as they were led by our three coaches, Willy Amador, Melvin James, and Christian Begg. Our 7th-grade group finished the season with a 2-4 record. One highlight of their season was the 15-0 victory in the team’s Spirit Game. The 8th-grade boys played great all year. The team had big wins over St. John’s, St. Francis, and ended the game against Second Baptist with a tie. The team closed out the season with a dramatic walk off win against John Cooper in the quarterfinals of the HJPC Tournament.  They finished the season with a 6-5 record, after losing a close game to Kinkaid in the semifinals.


Softball

The softball teams were coached by Dan Muschalik, Jacke Carr, and Gracie Clawson. Despite being a young squad, with only two 8th-grade athletes on the Varsity team, our softball teams worked well together and made great strides this year. The Varsity team opened the season with back-to-back wins over Emery and Second Baptist. They took the runner-up title at the St. Francis Tournament. The team had an exciting 13-0 win at their Spirit Game. They finished the season with a 6-10 overall record after losing their HJPC quarter final round game to a very good St. John’s team. The JV team showed tremendous potential and growth this season. Their great play at times is not accurately reflected in their 3-6-2 record. The team finished runner-up at the St. Francis Tournament and truly shined during their 11-4 Spirit Game victory over St. Francis.


Boys Lacrosse

The boys lacrosse team, coached by George Turley and Pouria Sarvi, played above and beyond expectations. The team was small in numbers, but came together and consistently performed like giants. The boys finished the regular season with a 5-4 record and the number 3 seed in the conference tournament. Although they lost a close game to Kinkaid in the semifinals, the team left it all on the field and made AOS proud with a great season.


Girls Lacrosse

All any coach or team can strive for is to continually get better. No team did that more than girls lacrosse, coached by Amit Shah and Allayne Austin. Although the final record was 2-9, the team competed in each game. Nothing proves the growth of this team more than the final game of the season against Kinkaid. Kinkaid won the regular season matchup by 7 goals. However, in the conference tournament game, AOS played amazing. They had the game tied going into the final seconds. The win wasn’t meant to be, as Kinkaid made one last goal at the buzzer to move on in the tournament. Despite the loss, the season was a success due to the improvement of the team and heart with which they played.


Golf

Coached by Eric Condon, the AOS golf team had a fun and successful season. Each member of the team showed improvement in their ball striking, putting, and scoring as the season progressed. The two girls on the team this year, Ella U. and Ava A., played well and were great leaders on and off the course. Some new 8th-grade athletes, Nicholas K., Tommy H., and Lane B. joined our veterans from last season led by Evan T. to give a boost to the boys’ side. Other 8th-grade athletes, Farid D., Aidan P., Luke R., and Alex S., all made tremendous contributions to the team. The future of the golf team is in good hands thanks to solid play from 7th-grade athletes Carlo N., Emerson K., Theron S., Maher D., Alex E., and Jaidan P. 


Tennis

Led by new coaches to the program, Koetting Jackson and Pres. Danae Magoulias, the tennis team continued to grow and find success in only their second full season. A highlight of the season was a team win against St. Francis. Other notable highlights include individual wins during the season by Finch F., Daniel P., Alyssa S., and Jacqueline L.  In doubles, Henry B. and Finch F. also came away with a victory in their match vs. Awty. We are looking forward to next season as our tennis team continues to grow and improve.

Track & Field

The track & field team once again proved why AOS is one of the top teams in the conference. Both the boys and girls in each grade level had tremendous success all season long. Under the direction of head coach Zsuzsanna Reeves, with assistance from Keyon Henderson, Earl Barrett, and Marti Carr, the team competed at each meet with pride and determination. In Coach Carr’s final season at AOS, she helped guide our 8th-grade girls to first place finishes in every single meet except one, in which they got second place by only a small margin. The 8th-grade boys finished in third place at Kinkaid, third at the first Lutheran South meet, and second place at the final Lutheran South meet. The 8th-grade boys capped off the season with a third place team finish in the HJPC championship meet. Our 8th-grade girls took first place and finished as HJPC Team Champions! Individual HJPC Boys Champions were 6th-grade athletes Emmanuel N. in the shot put and Reed Fowler in the high jump. Akash M. won the 8th-grade boys’ high jump. On the girls’ side, individual champions included Caroline B. in the 1oom, 200m, long jump and triple jump; Claire A. in the 400m; Langdon C., Valentina D., Leiah B., and Caroline B. in the 4X100m relay; and Leiah B., Avery D., Claire A., and Gemma H. in the 4X400m relay. Way to close the 2022 athletic season!  AOS Yes!
