Lion Sports Update (March 21)

The varsity lacrosse team traveled to Jesuit on Wednesday, March 8 to take on the 2x defending state champions. The team made a commitment to attacking this game with purpose, instead of letting the game come to them. This helped the Lions jump out to a 4-0 lead in the 1st quarter. It was a back-and-forth affair the rest of the way, with the Lions earning a 11-8 victory! Tenacity and effort carried the day. Over spring break, St. Mark’s traveled to Scottsdale, AZ to take on the top two teams in the state. The Lions brought home two victories vs. Notre dame Prep (13-4) and Brophy Prep (12-8). Aside from the on field play, it was wonderful for the team to spend quality time at the hotel and attend a spring training baseball game. Next up for our 6-1 lacrosse team is a trip to Houston this weekend to take on Houston Christian and Kinkaid.
On Monday, March 6, the St. Mark’s golf team competed in the Dallas Invitational Tournament, hosted by Jesuit at Brookhaven. A sizable number of schools (23) participated, and the Lions finished 3rd in overall team scoring in both the JV and Varsity divisions. Freshman Duff McKay (75), senior James Thomson (76), senior Logan Johnson (78), senior Tommy Zheng (80) and junior Hudson Brown (82) fared admirably on the Masters Course, while junior Charlie Hill (81), senior Aaron Greenberg (83), junior Henry Hoak (83) and sophomore Mateo Ubinas (84) led the way on the Championship Course. This week, the Lions travel to Hawks Creek Golf Club for the All Saints Jim Osborne Invitational
The varsity baseball team squared off against TACA, a competitive DFW home school-based team, on the Tuesday before Spring Break. Using four pitchers (Silas Hosler, Lucas Petrikas, Aaron Augustine and Stice Neuhoff), St. Mark’s tried to contain the potent TACA offense. Unfortunately, the pitching staff was unable to do so, allowing nine runs on nine hits through seven innings. Our offense collected four hits - John Stephen Hohmann (2), Stice Neuhoff (1) and Mitchell Galardi (1) – and one run scored by Alex Barrett. The Thursday game against THESA was canceled due to a thunderstorm, which rolled in about 30 minutes before game time. St. Mark’s opens the counter season with two 5 p.m. home games this week against Oakridge on Tuesday and ESD on Friday.

The St. Mark’s track & field team was unable to host its inaugural Double-Dual Meet with Jesuit, Hockaday and Ursuline on Thursday, March 9 because of inclement weather. The next week was spring break and most of the team traveled out of town. A small group of athletes did stay and practiced during the week. This small group participated in the John Paul II meet on Thursday, March 16. Mateu Parker had a good day, winning the 100m in a personal best of 11.25. He followed that up with a second place in the 300 hurdles. A total of eight runners competed in a few events for the Lions. On Saturday, March 18, Trey Stager, Clark Cooper and Asa McCaleb participated in the Texas Distance Festival in Southlake. Trey ran a very competitive 1600m race and finished with a PR of 4:31.84. He was followed by Clark Cooper in a season best of 4:50.43. Asa competed in the 3200m in finished in 10:07.88. This week the Lions travel to the Parish Episcopal Invitational with field events on Friday and running events on Saturday.
