Time for Some reSPeCt

While Varsity Football kept Maverick dreams alive up to the last game of the season in H-Town, volleyball, cross country, and field hockey hope to hoist hardware in Big D at SPC. 

Boys’ Volleyball is up first at 10:00 a.m. at the host school, Greenhill. The Mavs will try to get back to the championship game in which they fought so valiantly a year ago. The task won’t be easy as they start off against Fort Worth Country Day, the team that handed them their first conference loss of the season.


Girls’ Volleyball, hosted by The Episcopal School of Dallas, takes on Hockaday at 10:30 a.m. The Mavs are pulling out all of the stops including the traditional food in Ennis, captains mentoring meeting, and the Coach Fuller preaching hour. “We plan to play one match at a time, and allow our Div-I experience be the rails that will guide the team to the finals,” said James Fuller. “We remain humble and poised for the upcoming challenges.”


Field Hockey, recently recovered from Kinkaid Week, will be playing at host school, Hockaday. The SPC South zone champs start at 11:00 a.m. against Fort Worth Country Day School. Kinkaid and Trinity Valley loom large on both sides of the bracket.   “We have high hopes and when we are focused and ready to play, we will have a chance,” said Craig Chambers. “We need to just play our game, which starts with controlling the tempo in the midfield.”


Cross country starts on Friday at Norbuck Park. “The top two boys’ teams - St. Andrew's and St. Mark's - are pretty much unbeatable and should fight it out for the championship,” said Richie Mercado. “We look to outrun EHS, ESD, and Holland Hall for the third spot, but muddy conditions could turn everything upside down.” The girls’ strategy is fairly straight forward. “However, whatever....Just Win,” said Rachel Skinner.
