What's New at JPII?
History is Made, Again...and Again...and Again!
On Friday, the Lady Eagles volleyball team played a thrilling match. After losing the first set, they came from behind to win three sets in a row and clinch the #3 seed for the SeaTac League Tri-District Tournament. Alli Nichols was a serving machine. Lillian Hamilton brought home the final point with a perfectly placed ball on the line. This marks the Eagle Volleyball’s first appearance in Tri-District playoffs in JPII history!
Tri-district opponents have now been set. Our lady Eagles take on Cedar Park Christian at 4:00 pm Tuesday night at Shoreline Christian High School.
Also taking the field Friday night, Tim Sellars--JPII senior and a captain of the Olympia Bears varsity football team. The Bears played a tightly contested football game against Curtis High School. With Olympia down 6-0 a late offensive drive secured a Senior Night victory for Tim and his teammates.
Carrying on a great Eagle tradition, many in the JPII community were there to support Tim who now leads his team into the playoffs.
Saturday morning in Onalaska, the girls cross country team did what no JPII girls team has ever accomplished at JPII, winning the District Championship. The girls scored 26 points, and put together a gutsy team performance. Vivi Kondrat led the way with a 5th place overall finish.
A few hours later, and 140 miles north on Whidbey island, the boys cross country team dominated the Northwest District Championship, earning 1st place as a team as well. Individually, Kobe Deutscher placed first followed by Mattox Marsh in second.
On Saturday, both cross country teams travel to Pasco for Saturday's State Championship meet.
Please pray for all our athletes as they travel throughout the state for post-season competition.
