SAAS Fall Sports – A School Record 28 Teams!
The fall sports season started at SAAS this week with, as usual, another tremendous turnout. This fall the Cardinals will set a school record with twenty-eight teams! Seattle Academy has fielded nine soccer teams, nine volleyball teams, three teams in both tennis and Ultimate, and two teams each in golf and cross country for a total of twenty-eight teams. Almost five hundred kids, more than half of the school, are participating in athletics this fall.
“We’re very excited about the upcoming fall season,” said Athletic Director Cathy Schick. “We not only have a record number of athletes, but a top-notch coaching staff. It’s really an exciting time to be a Cardinal athlete and a member of the SAAS community.”
One of the many highlights of the fall athletic season at SAAS is their annual Fall Mania, which this year will take place on Friday, September 20. The annual event will again be held at the Starfire Sports Complex. All twenty-eight SAAS teams will be recognized throughout the evening with the nine soccer teams and the three Ultimate teams playing in games. Fall Mania, on four different fields at Starfire, starts at 3:15 PM and culminates with the girls' varsity soccer team taking on University Prep in the main stadium.
Following Fall Mania, SAAS will host Volleyball Fest on Monday, September 23! All nine SAAS volleyball teams, five Upper School and four Middle School, will be in action. Games start at 3:30 PM culminating with the girls’ varsity squad taking on Forest Ridge at 7:15 PM in the main gym.
We hope to see you all at Fall Mania and Volleyball Fest! Good luck to all of our athletes this fall and GO Cardinals!
