Good Morning SV Community,

We hope everyone enjoyed the 3 day weekend. We are back and ready for another busy and…. wet week. For the third straight week of the athletic season we are looking at a major rain event hitting us during and especially the end of the week. The athletic department is working tirelessly to ensure that all changes and rescheduling of games and practices are communicated in a timely and effective manner. Please make sure to use Twitter for the most immediate updates.

It is Northwest week for our Varsity Football team. This is the biggest game of the year in Germantown and we are hoping that everyone will make it out Friday (with rain gear 🙂 ) to support our team. More information will sent out later in the week, but please note that we will play our game AT NORTHWEST, however it will be a home game for Seneca Valley HS. Tickets will be on sale at lunch on Thursday and Friday in the Cafeteria and at the gate, which will open at 5 pm for a 7 pm kickoff.

Please keep reading for important updates and recaps from our athletic events.

We are still in desperate need of student athletes. As of September 10th, we are unable to field a JV Cheerleading squad due to lack of interest. We also have Field Hockey and a Girls Soccer team who are playing without any substitutes.

It is not to late to join. Please visit the mymcps parental portal and register your student athlete for a fall sport. Please note that in order to participate you MUST register online and you MUST have a valid and updated physical.

There will be a JV Cheer tryout on Wednesday, August 12th at 5 pm in the main gym.


Please stop in and see Athletic Director Jesse Irvin if you need assistance.
