Weekend Roundup
It was a great weekend for San Marcos Academy. Here are some highlights if you missed them:
  • Our Lady Bears basketball team emerged from the state tournament as TCAL 3A Champions. Great job, Lady Bears!
  • Our awesome cheerleaders took second place in the TCAL state competition (large division) and then cheered on the Lady Bearsin the championship game. Proud of these spirited and talented young ladies!
  • The Bears basketball team won their quarterfinal game in the state tournament, but lost in the semifinals; still a great effort by our team.
  • The cast and crew of “Honk!” capped off weeks of practice and preparation with three great performances. Thanks to all who assisted with this production.
  • Our baseball team won their first two games in the SMA Baseball Tournament on Thursday, but the finals rounds on Saturday were cancelled due to weather. Pat the boys on the back for playing tough in such cold, messy weather!
  • Thanks to all the parents who braved the weather and came to our Parent Day Saturday. If you were not able to come and have any questions for a teacher, please feel free to contact them directly. The presentation by our guidance counselor on college readiness is available on our bulletin board page for those who would like to review it.
