The Middle School volleyball teams hosted Newport in Metters Gym on Nov. 27.  Here are photo galleries from the JV Game and the Varsity Game.

Saint George's girls soccer team finished their season in style on Nov. 17 with a 2-0 State 2B Championship victory over Kalama.  The win at Sunset Stadium in Sumner marked their second State 2B Title in the past three years!  A goal by Grace Harrill in the first half was matched by Lydia Bergquist's penalty kick score early in the second half, and the defense held Kalama scoreless for the win.  "I have already told them probably 10 times today how proud I am, this whole weekend actually," said head coach Logan Georgiadis in an article in the Spokesman-Review.  The Dragons finished 11-6-2 and will only graduate two seniors this year -- Abby Jones and Maddy Christiansen.

The Dragons earned a shot at the State Title with a dominating 4-1 win over previously undefeated Liberty Bell in the State Semifinals on Nov. 16.  See photo galleries of the Upper School cheering the team as they Left for State, of the State Championship Game, and the Victory Celebration afterwards.  Congratulations to the State Champions!

Five members of Saint George's State Champion girls soccer team received All-League honors in voting by 2B school coaches from across NE Washington.  Josie Melville was named Honorable Mention, while 1st Team honors went to Maddy Christiansen, Grace Harrill, and Lydia Bergquist.  The NE 2B League MVP honor was given to Cambrie Rickard, who also received the WIAA Athlete of the Week award for her 11 goals during the run-up to the State Semifinals.  Congratulations Dragons!

Saint George's School has won the WIAA Scholastic Cup for the top 2B school in the state for academic and athletic performance!  SGS racked up 1,585 points, including earning four state academic titles (choir, debate, boys soccer, and boys tennis) for highest grade point average.  The school also earned points for top athletic teams, including the boys soccer, girls soccer, girls track, and boys basketball teams that all finished 2nd in State.  See the Rankings of 2B Schools and the List of SGS Programs that earned points toward the title.

The WIAA Scholastic Cup recognizes performance in the classroom as well as on the playing surface.  Schools that finish at the top of their respective classifications in state athletic competition receive points, as do schools that finish at the top in team academic performance.  SGS had finished 2nd to Northwest Christian the past two years, finally passing the Crusader's 1,405 points to claim the title this year.  League rivals Colfax (865 points) and Davenport (830 points) finished 3rd and 4th overall, highlighting the athletic and academic strength of Eastern Washington's small schools.  

This marks the second time that Saint George's has won the Scholastic Cup, while finishing 2nd seven times and in the Top 5 statewide 13 times.  One measure of Saint George's academic strength was that SGS was the only school in 2017-18 to win the Scholastic Cup without winning an athletic State Championship.  Go Dragons!

The Dragons defeated Northwest Christian 5-1 in the State Quarterfinals on Saturday, Nov. 10 at SGS.  Saint George's girls earned a spot in the State Semifinals at 2pm on Friday, Nov. 16 at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner, WA, where they will face undefeated Liberty Bell HS of Winthrop.  The winner of that game advances to the State Championship Game on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 2pm.  The loser in Friday's game will play at 10am on Nov. 17 in Sumner for 3rd place in State.  See the WIAA Girls Soccer State Bracket for details.  Plus read the Nov. 8 Spokesman-Review Article about seniors Abby Jones & Maddy Christiansen in the State Playoffs for the fourth year!  Go Dragons!

Congratulations to SGS senior Xander Werkman, who played on the offensive line for Lewis and Clark's football team.  Xander was named to the 4A All-League First Team (Offense).  Kudos as well to SGS junior Liam Elsensohn, who played offensive line for the Mead HS football team and helped them reach the state playoffs.

Congratulations to sophomore Cambrie Rickard, the WIAA 2B Athlete of the Week for her offensive contributions to the Dragons soccer team reaching the State Semifinals.  Cambrie scored three goals and had an assist in the State quarterfinal win over Northwest Christian on Nov. 10.  She has had an incredible showing for the Dragons in the State qualifier and quarterfinals where she has 11 goals and two assists.  Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA and Wendy's recognize varsity athletes, from each of the six classifications, who exhibited outstanding performances the previous week.  Go Dragons!
