During the Spring SPC Competition this weekend, when the Episcopal Baseball team won its fourth consecutive SPC Championship, EHS made high school sports history by being the first school since the SPC’s founding in 1952 to win school-year championships in Football, Boys Basketball, and Baseball. The Baseball Championship (7-0 vs. Kinkaid) was one of many success stories. Episcopal also won the Boys Track and Field Championship and was runner-up in both Softball and Girls Track and Field. In additional action this weekend, Girls Lacrosse came in 3rd place in Division 1. When asked to comment on the spring sports season’s achievements, Athletic Director Steve Leisz kept it brief: "We’re awesome!" Read his notes regarding the weekend’s championships below: Baseball: Episcopal Baseball and Coach Fox have won four consecutive SPC Baseball Championships! The Knights opened up SPC play on a cold and windy morning vs. Fort Worth Trinity Valley and came away with a 2-1 victory. Creed Coram, Alex McCollam, and Bryce Packard pitched the Knights to victory. Game two paired us against St. John’s. It was a hard-fought battle and we held on for a 7-5 victory. Braxton Wilks and Bryce Packard pitched in game two’s victory. The championship game was set for Episcopal pitcher (Stanford bound) John Henry Styles to start. The Knights pull out the victory over Kinkaid for the third year in a row. Track and Field: Retiring coach Dick Phillips goes out with a bang! Boys Track and Field is the SPC Champion. Coach Phillips’ team dominated all year long. The team made a statement at the Texas Relays (national event), winning the 4 X 4, 4 X 2, and a second in the 4 X 1. The track team also won four meet championships during the season. Last month, the school dedicated the EHS Relays and renamed it the Dick Phillips Relays. Congratulations, Coach Phillips, on your Championship and retirement!
