St. John’s is proud to announce that it has for the second time in the last three years won the Southwest Preparatory School (SPC) Athletic Director’s Cup as the top coed program in the conference. In addition, the girls program finished first in the overall rankings, while the St. John's boys team was runner-up to first place winner St. Mark's School of Texas.  The SPC is comprised of 18 highly selective independent schools in Texas and Oklahoma. It is the nation's largest geographical private school athletic conference.  According to Headmaster Mark Desjardins, "Winning the Athletic Director's Cup for the second time in three years is a tremendous accomplishment for our students, coaches and athletic support staff.  This achievement clearly demonstrates that athletic and academic excellence can coexist at St. John's.  We set high standards and expectations for everything we do and are especially pleased when the hard work and dedication of our students and coaches is recognized and rewarded."

The Mavericks were SPC Champions in Field Hockey, Boy’s Basketball, and Girl’s Lacrosse, and Girl's Track and Field.  They were runner’s up in Football, Girl’s Basketball and Boy’s Lacrosse. 

St. John’s would like to extend congratulations to our peer schools in the Houston area who also finished high in the standings of the Athletic Director’s Cup.

The SPC Director’s Cup was introduced in 2006 and is awarded to the school with the best SPC program record from conference tournaments in three categories: Overall, Boys, and Girls.
