Eagles News · Athletics Update- Week of March 9th

Good evening SV Community,


It has been a great start to Spring Sports!  The weather has been great, with outside practices and a few early scrimmages. The teams are taking advantage of the nice weather and preparing for the first games, which begin next Friday, March 20th. Please make sure to visit our website www.svhsathletics.org.


We ended up having a nice turnout of student athletes and are looking for field some solid teams. Unfortunately however, we will be unable to field a JV Softball team or a Boys Volleyball team due to lack of participation.  We will continue to strive to push those sports in the future to make sure we have our team rosters filled.


A few important notes and reminders:

  • There will be a Student Athlete meeting tomorrow at lunch and Wednesday at lunch in room 131. This is for any student athlete that did not attend the summer kickoff celebration or one of the make ups for Fall and Winter Sports. They are only required to attend one. Failure to attend will lead to them being ineligible to participate in a spring sport. Please contact the coach of your student athletes sport if you need clarification on whether they need to attend.
