    Woodfolk Endures Rocky Waterfall Start for Record

    Drew Woodfolk ’18 entered the 800-meter finals at the Victor Lopez Classic seeded 6th after posting a PR in the prelims with a time of 1:58.53, just shy of the school record set by Rudy Reynolds '04 (1:58.20). In order to break it, he would have to use more than his legs to have a chance. The twelve man final pitted runners in two groups for a waterfall start which allows runners to leave their start lanes after the first turn and break to the inside lanes, squeezing stride space in seconds.

    “It was super physical,” said Woodfolk. “From the gun, everybody was using their arms and it was a fight the whole 800 meters. Once both groups converged near the start there was more confusion.”

    As the field lined up for the second lap Woodfolk held his own down the stretch and ended up in 6th place with a time of 1:57.64, well ahead of the school record. Teammate Douglas Parsley ’20 ran a PR of 1:58.60 for 9th. The girls 4x100 ran well in the exhibition final, posting season bests the last two days, and the boys won the exhibition 4x100 final in the third fastest time in school history. Genson Hooper Price '19 finished the evening by holding on to 3rd place in the 400 meter final in his second-best time ever - 48.25.  The boys' team ended up the meet in 12th place overall with 23 points. Complete Rice VLC Results are HERE and on athletic.net.

  • Feets Don't Fail Me Now

    The fall tradition of the St. John’s – Kinkaid football dates back to 1951.  Kinkaid leads the series 39 to 25.  St. John’s gained its most recent victory in 2012, the last time the Mavericks were in the playoff hunt.  For over two decades, under Head Coach Steve Gleaves, St. John’s has used the veer offense to put points on the board, methodically grinding down defenses one step at a time. In the steady synchronization of quarterback, fullback, and sometimes tailback in triple option offense, passing plays are few and far between.  The kicking game typically has found its place with PAT’s (point after touchdown), kickoffs, and punts.  A field goal is a rarity.  According to Gleaves, on his watch, St. John’s has never made two field goals in one game--until last Friday night when the Mavericks faced the Houston Christian Mustangs on Skip Lee Field.

  • Texas Two-Step: Boys' and Girls' Cross Country SPC Preview

    What better way to race the season’s first 5k than on the 2015 SPC Championship course.  That’s what the MAVS Boys’ and Girls” Cross-Country did this Saturday morning at St. Andrew’s School in Austin.  All but three SPC schools were in the race.  For the Girls, big opponents this year were St. Andrew’s, Kinkaid, and Hockaday.  For the Boys, St. Stephen’s and St. Marks were running right on the MAV’s heels. The MAVS knew that SPC would look a lot like this race: same course, same runners, same conditions. How the Boys’ and Girls’ XC runners finished today relative to other teams would be a good indicator of things to come at the SPC Championship meet to be held on the same course on November 7.

  • Justise Winslow '14 talks about St. John's, NBA draft

    The New York Post published a piece on Justise Winslow '14. Read the entire story here.

    How a lifetime of competitive fire molded Justise Winslow into Knicks option

    Ask anyone who has followed the basketball career of Justise Winslow for the moment they thought he had the chance to be something special, and each points to the same moment: the state title game in his freshman year at St. John’s School, a small, private school in Houston.

    Trying to lift the school to its first basketball title in more than 30 years, Winslow — playing alongside his older brother Josh — had been spectacular, putting up 43 points and 16 rebounds. With 12 seconds left and the score tied, coach Harold Baber knew there was no one else he would rather have with the ball in his hands.
    “We drew up a play, and he worked it to perfection,” Baber said. “He crosses a guy over and gets into the lane, and no one would have been bothered if he took a shot. But his brother’s guy steps up, and he finds him and Josh lays it in as the buzzer sounded.

    “It was worked to perfection by a freshman. It was one of those moments … you always knew he was special, but in the biggest game of his career at that point, he goes for 43 and 16 and finishes the game exactly the way you drew it up.
    “That’s when I was like, ‘Wow, this is something extraordinary.’ ”

  • Justise Winslow '14, Duke Blue Devils win NCAA Championship

    The St. John’s community was obsessed with March Madness, just as the rest of the country was this season. Mavericks from across the United States were watching and cheering on SJS alumnus Justise Winslow ’14, who led the Duke Blue Devils to the NCAA Championship game against the Wisconsin Badgers on Monday, April 6. It was an impossibly close game, but the Blue Devils ultimately defeated Wisconsin 68-63.

    After the Blue Devils beat No. 5 Utah 63-57, and No. 2 Gonzaga 66-52 to reach the Final Four in Indianapolis, they knocked out Michigan State 81-61. In a major upset, the Badgers bested the previously undefeated Wildcats to pit Duke against Wisconsin for the championship title.

    The Houston Chronicle spoke to Coach Krzyzewski after Duke’s victory against the Zags. "He had a great Tournament," Mike Krzyzewski said. "It doesn't surprise me about Justise. Justise is a very special young man, not just a special basketball player. He went to St. John's. He learned to be a total person, not just a basketball player. And he came to Duke, and he's trying to do that at Duke. So I just think he's one of the really special young men playing college sports right now. He's got this great background."

    Justise's phenomenal play action began with a homecoming in Houston for the NCAA South Regional Tournament. Friends, family, and former coaches waited in anticipation for the arrival of the Duke basketball team at the Royal Sonesta Hotel. The group of fans and close friends were gathered in the lobby holding signs to welcome Winslow back to Houston.

    Winslow’s former coach and mentor, Stephen Trauber, coordinated the secret gathering of Winslow’s family and friends to surprise him upon his arrival to Houston. Coaches, teachers, and former students from St. John’s were all in attendance. Winslow was proudly decked out in his Duke blue as he walked through the crowd, hugging friends and shaking hands with fans. It was a St. John’s reunion of sorts as former teammates gathered around him to congratulate him and show their support.

    Along with four other Blue Devils, Winslow was named to the All-ACC Academic Team at the beginning of March. To be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career. Duke placed the second most number of players on the all-academic team, according to Duke Sports Information.

    SPC Results --Girls Track Wins SPC by 1 point!

    Destination D1:   All Maverick spring teams made the cut, and more!

    Stephanie Guo, Meredith Gamble, Jackie Modesett, and Anne Johnson broke the school 4 * 400 meter record to win the race and the entire SPC meet for girls' track and field.   Prior to the final race, SJ was down by three points to the Knights, whose girls' lacrosse team just beat the Mavericks for their first SPC Championship, a crown dominated by St. John's in the past.

    The dynasty of all St. John's SPC sports however, is Girls' Track and Field which now holds a school record of 19 SPC titles.  St. John's won SPC in consecutive years from 1976-1988, and followed with victories in '94, '96, '97, '2000, '2005, and with 50 meters to go Johnson passed the Knights for the 2010 Championship. 
    The 4 * 400 race was led by the Mavs led most of the way but with 150 meters to go, Episcopal passed Johnson, but there was too much room to recover and A.J. got it done!  For more in the Examiner News click here.

    Congratulations to all of the Maverick athletes, coaches, parents, and fans for an awesome showing in D1 this spring!

  • #19 Sallie Armstrong- Washington and Lee Generals 3X First Team All-ODAC & Field Hockey Captain

    FOUR COULD BE THE CHARM FOR ARMSTRONG

    Sam Chambers
    Sallie Armstrong, SJS class of 2006, is in her 4th year as one of the field hockey standouts for the Washington and Lee Generals.  Coach Wendy Orrison is hoping that Armstrong and her Senior teammates have the will for an ODAC Championship, something they have not seen in the past three seasons.
    Armstrong finished up last year by scoring 4 goals in their last win of the season, and as the 2009 season begins to unwind, Sallie needs just four more to break the school all time scoring record.
    The Generals lost their opener to Johns Hopkins but rebounded against McDaniel last Saturday for a 2-1 win.  Armstrong took four shots on goal and converted to get closer to the mark.
    As the Mavericks catch a glimpse of Sallie and teammate Kate Donnelly (SJS '2008), on their way to the November 7th ODAC Championship, one can only believe that Armstrong will be yelling "fore" when she breaks the record and gets it done for the Generals in her fourth year!

    The Mavericks had a great weekend at the 79th Texas Relays in Austin.  The Girls 4 x 400 team of Courtney Miller, Candace Bailey, Jessica Chen, and Sallie Armstrong broke the school record by almost 3 seconds on Friday with a time of 4:02.16.  On Saturday, the 4 x 400 team placed 4th in the finals and lowered the school record almost 2 more seconds to 4:00.25!  In between, the same four girls qualified for the 4 x 100 final with the second best time in school history and finished 7th in the finals.  To top it off, Sallie Armstrong ran a new school record in the 100m Hurdles, tieing the third place time of 15.19 but placing 4th when the timer went to 1000ths.  Sallie was part of 3 school records in less than 24 hours!  Courtney Miller ran two personal bests to lead of the 4 x 400 team.  Blaine Finley tied his personal best in the Pole Vault with a jump of 14'6", finishing in a tie for 8th place out of 24 vaulters, and taking 3 close attempts at a school record-tieing 15'0"!  For complete results go here:  http://www.texassports.com/doc_lib/relays_2006.htm
