THE WINTER SPORTS TEAMS AT SECOND BAPTIST SCHOOL HAD THEIR FAIR SHARE OF SUCCESS FOR THE 2019-2020 SEASONS

The top performances came from the women's basketball team which reached the TAPPS 5A state title game; the women's soccer team reaching the second round of the TAPPS Division II playoffs and the men's swim team taking third at the TAPPS Division II State Meet.

The 2019-2020 version of the Second Baptist School women's basketball team won't soon be forgotten. The group made it all the way to the TAPPS 5A State Championship game and finished as the second best team in Texas. With a season like that, there would be no surprise when the postseason awards would roll in. Starting with the all district picks. Leyla Ertan '21, Kaitlyn Kollmorgen '20 and Victoria Ryan '20 were first-team picks, while Emily Blackmon '20 was named second team. Alyssa Elias '20 and Caroline Torn '20 earned honorable mention nods. Blackmon signed with Colorado Christian University in May. TAPPS all-state picks rolled out with Kollmorgen and Ryan being named first team.


"What a great group of young women we were able to cheer for all year long," Second Baptist School Director of Athletics Mike Walker said. "This group was very talented. The combination of a quick back court and tough-hard working front court, our Eagles came together to get it done all year long. "While individual accomplishments are flattering, we are especially proud of this group of seniors who led by example, loved each other and made it to the TAPPS 5A Final Four three years in a row."
