After a year with no sports, SGS students were eager to get back out onto the field and course this fall. We spoke with Hannah and Cody, who just finished coaching the cross-country and soccer seasons, respectively.
Cross-Country “The season went great!,” said Hannah. “We transformed from a group of individual runners to a team.” Each kid set progressive goals for themselves over the season as they improved. During one particular hard practice, Hannah challenged them to ramp up the positivity. “They leaned into it so hard, and it shifted the mood of the team into something more fun.” With over 25 runners, this was one of the largest cross-country teams in SGS history.
by Cody The 2021 Fall soccer season was a historic one. For the first time ever, over 30 students laced up their soccer boots, built cross-grade relationships, and hollered team cheers on game days. There were innumerable individual and team achievements this season. For the first time in Lynx recorded history, our team averaged a 2+ goals a game average. Players shared playing time, shin guards, and laughs; even when the chilly Fall eventually caught up with us. It should also be noted that our fans were truly wonderful this season. The support, encouragement, and treats were a welcome bonus to this truly momentous season. Inset: Huddling up during a sunny soccer practice at Jimi Hendrix Park.
