Upper School spring sports compete in Southwestern Preparatory Conference’s spring tournament

Over the past two weeks, Greenhill attended the Southwestern Preparatory Conference’s spring tournament, with teams playing softball, tennis, lacrosse and running track and field.

At the Lifetime in Plano, for the fifth year in a row, the Greenhill boys’ tennis team won against Houston Christian 4-1. This tournament capped off a season filled with highlights, from a fifth-place finish at a national high school tournament to an undefeated counter game record.

“The atmosphere was incredible, I’m proud of this team for all of the hard work we have done, and I’m excited for the future,” said junior Rishi Vas.

Meanwhile, at the Hockaday School, the Greenhill girls’ tennis team narrowly lost to Episcopal High School (L 2-3), placing twelfth in SPC.

At St. Mark’s School of Texas, SPC teams battled it out on the track and field. The girls’ team got fourth place and the boys’ team got sixth. Juniors Ariana Luterman and Cameron Crates and freshmen Kaiti Ness and Maddie Hatfield finished their 4×800 meter race in a school-record time of 9:42.86.

“It’s extremely rewarding because I know every single one of us worked so hard for it.”, said junior Cameron Crates.

Boys’ lacrosse ended up placing fourth after a close match with The Kinkaid School (L 10-12). From there, they have gone on to represent Greenhill in the ongoing state tournament playoffs. Girls’ lacrosse played at the Episcopal School of Dallas, finishing in fifth place. They are also going to represent Greenhill at the state tournament playoffs this coming weekend in Houston.

At the SPC golf tournament in the Woodlands, the girls’ golf team finished off an eventful season in eighth place and team captain Michelle Lee scored 191 and placed fifteenth overall. The boys’ team placed fourth. In addition, sophomore Sid Kilisetty and junior Brock Bagelman both scored 155 and tied for twelfth place individually.

Over the April 27 to 29 weekend, Greenhill’s softball team placed sixth after a regular season of only one loss.
