The girls volleyball team completed an outstanding season with a 3-0 win over ESD in the SPC championship game in front of a large and spirited group of fans Saturday afternoon in Alkek Gym. The Knights earned their spot in the championship game with earlier tournament wins over Houston Christian (3-0) and St. John's (3-0). The win marks the Knights second SPC title in three years and gave the team an impressive 35-4 record this season.
The EHS football team captured their first SPC title in five years with a thrilling 42-21 win over Kinkaid at Butler Stadium. The Knights used an overpowering running game, led by Quon Marion's 270 yards rushing and three TD's, to complete the season sweep of the Falcons. Adrian Cormier's 119 yards rushing and two TD's gave the Knights two running backs who eclipsed the century mark on the ground. The Knight defense held the Falcons to 21 points and stifled the Falcon offense in the fourth quarter.
The girls cross country team ran one of their best races of the season Saturday morning at Spring Creek Park in Tomball and took home their second consecutive SPC Runner-Up trophy. The Knights were led by All-SPC runners KitKat Kwiatkowski, Kate Freeman, and Ella Newman. Alena Haney, Lucy Holden, and Elizabeth McLauchlin each ran fantastic races to help the Knights reach the podium. The EHS boys cross country team finished twelfth in a very competitive SPC field.
The field hockey team capped an outstanding weekend with an impressive 3-1 win over Greenhill to take fifth place in the SPC. The finish marks the highest finish for the Knights in more than ten years. The Knights began tournament play with a thrilling 1-0 overtime win over Hockaday and gave North Zone #1 seed Trinity Valley all they could handle before falling 1-0 in overtime in the quarterfinal matchup.
The boys volleyball team overcame a tough 3-2 loss to Greenhill in the quarterfinals and defeated St. Andrews 3-0 and place fifth in the SPC. The Knights finished an outstanding season with a record of 22-12.
