Coach Sara Bany: As I look at how long the list is above, I want to extend a huge congratulations to everyone on the team.  It has been such a hard year to come together as a team, but this weekend they did.  Everyone was up cheering for their teammates, supporting each other throughout the meet.  All day long our swimmers were finishing with season-best and career-best times, which is all you can ask at a championship meet.  My seniors – Katia Guerrero, Nicholas Harris, Adelaide Herman, and Zac Winton – have led the team by example all year and continued to do so this weekend as they capped off their Cooper swimming careers by swimming and diving at their best.  Congratulations seniors on the fantastic season!

Coach Amber Clevenger:
This was a successful week for the girls soccer team. Tuesday’s game against Houston Christian was one of the best games we’ve played all season and we ended up with a 0-0 tie against a tough opponent. It was an overall effort, and I was proud of the way the team performed. Brayden Schumann came up huge for us in goal, making some great saves to keep us in the game.  

Last night’s game in Austin against St. Andrews led us to our first SPC win of 3-0! It was great to see my team laughing and enjoying themselves. The first goal came off of a cross from Kaitlin Hinch, and Chloe Smith got onto the end of it with a one-touch finish on goal–one of the best goals of the whole season! Smith’s goal with the assist from Hinch started us off, then Tamsin Prudencio tallied another goal for us unassisted. Finally, Kat Staebel finished the night off for us with a goal off an assist by Smith, who was on fire! It has been a long season, but this week has shown me the true progress that we’ve made and I’m proud of the girls. 

Next up, we take on the top team in the South Zone, St. John’s. It’s not going to be easy, but as long as we step up to the challenge that’s all I can ask!
