April 6, 2017 – As we head into Spring Break, Seattle Academy athletics is well into another fantastic spring. The Cardinals held their annual Spring Mania last weekend at the Starfire Sports Complex with nine other schools joining SAAS for competitions in lacrosse, soccer, and Ultimate.
The games began at 3:30 with the SAAS girls’ varsity Ultimate team taking on Eastside Prep on the main stadium field. The Cardinals came out on top, defeating the Eagles, 12-4. This was the first of fourteen contests that took place on four fields in both the Upper and Middle school throughout the afternoon and into the night. Following the girls’ Ultimate squad, the SAAS boys’ varsity lacrosse team took the field and defeated Nathan Hale, 13-2.
Making their debut at Spring Mania was the girls’ lacrosse team. Fielding a junior varsity team this season, the girls’ lacrosse program has twenty-seven girls participating in the Upper School and twenty-two playing in the Middle School. The SAAS lacrosse program, both boys and girls, is just over three years old now and has an amazing one hundred and ten kids playing lacrosse!
To conclude Spring Mania in Starfire’s main stadium, the SAAS boys’ varsity soccer team took on University Prep, losing a hard fought game, 3-2. Overall it was an extraordinary day at the Starfire Sports Complex. We’d like to thank all of our parent volunteers and congratulations to all the participants. PHOTO GALLERY
After spring break we look forward to all the state competitions in golf, lacrosse, tennis, track and field, and Ultimate. Go Cardinals!
