SHILOH TODAY SPORTS SUMMARIES continued Tennis The 2019-2020 Shiloh Tennis season was a great success. They had more than 15 players who competed at a high level against several 6A teams and against teams in their conference. This year’s team included seven new players. Every student-athlete competed with excellence and represented our school, our team, and most importantly Jesus in a way that glorified God. Three players qualified for the state tournament. Senior, Rachel Thomas, finished 3rd in the singles division at the conference tournament, and juniors, Sophia Rosenfeld and Acie Thrulby (first-time players) finished 3rd in the conference tournament. Track & Field The 2020 Track & Field season had an outstanding start. The coaching staff was encouraged by the response from athletes to join the program. The staff pursued new data-driven philosophies that encouraged high-intensity speed training that developed the athlete’s minds and bodies to learn to run, jump, and throw at the highest levels. The program was highlighted by the participation of over 100 athletes, including grades 7-12 which created a healthy, competitive environment. Unfortunately, the season was cut short by the COVID-19 crisis, but the program will be able to build upon the early successes of the 2020 season in preparation for the future. Cross Country The Saints Cross Country program is growing and improving. The 20192020 team had 17 athletes, including one senior. The XC Saints hosted the Saints Invitational meet for the tenth year, and it was a great success. At the conference meet, two athletes earned all-conference honors including Austin O'Leary who was 7th place in the Junior High Boys Division, and Gideon Sutterfield who was 10th place in the Senior High Division. The junior high boys team placed 4th overall in conference, and the high school boys team placed 7th overall in conference. Baseball The 2020 Saints Baseball season started with high hopes to finish another year at Baum-Walker Stadium as they were ranked in the top 3 in the state in their classification pre-season. Before the season came to a premature end due to COVID-19, they finished with a 7-3 record. During the early season, the team went 4-3 against 6A opponents with an average margin of victory of 9.3 runs. Five senior players signed letters of intent to continue their careers at Arkansas State University, Arkansas Tech University, Henderson State University, Oklahoma State University, and Northwestern University. 26 SPORTS: SEASON SUMMARIES Check out what some of Shiloh's sports teams have achieved!
