Penny Drive Raises Funds for Joya

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the SGS Penny Drive for Joya earlier this month. The 3rd grade was the top class, donating $8.15 per student! The 6th graders were tops in the Middle School, while the faculty gave the most in the Upper School. Between individual donations and money raised at the MS Carnival, the school contributed $1,113.55 to Joya, which serves local preschoolers with developmental challenges.

Girls Win Third State Track & Field Title in a Row!

The Dragons made it three State 2B Track and Field championships in a row with a dominant victory at the State Finals in Yakima on May 23-25. Their 95 team points easily outdistanced second place Davenport with 67.5 points.

Both Saint George’s track teams brought home State titles, with the boys returning to the victory stand for the second straight year. “The Dragons are only the third team in state history to win back-to-back team titles in both boys and girls track, and become the first team in the state of Washington to ever win 5 state championships in a 3-year stretch!” says head coach TJ Moulton.

Individual State Champions include Josie McLaughlin in the 1600 and 800-meter races, Regan Thomas in the 3200-meter race (and 2nd in the 1600), and Kaylee Clark in the Triple Jump (as well as 4th in the Long Jump). Rachel Sudlow was 2nd in the Triple Jump and 6th in the Long Jump. Savvy Briceno took 3rd in the 400-meter race, while Julianne Garcia was 7th in the 300 Hurdles and Henri Osborne threw for 8th in Shot Put. The Girls 4×100 relay (Rachel, Kaylee, Savvy, and Julianne) and 4×200 relay (Evie Wolff, Josie, Kaylee, and Savvy) each earned 3rd place.

But the crowning glory of the meet was the victory of the girls 4×400 meter relay team — for the 8th consecutive State Meet! Congratulations to Savvy Briceno, Sarah Harbaugh, Regan Thomas, and Josie McLaughlin for carrying on the Dragons’ unprecedented dominance in this event. Go Dragons!

Boys Repeat as State Track & Field Champions!

The Dragons earned another Track & Field State 2B Title on May 25th after three days of competition in Yakima. They finished with 95 points, well ahead of 2nd place Goldendale with 44 points.

Both Saint George’s track teams brought home State titles — the boys going back-to-back while the girls completed the quest for a “3-peat”. “The Dragons are only the third team in state history to win back to back team titles in both boys and girls track, and become the first team in the state of Washington to ever win 5 state championships in a 3-year stretch!” says head coach TJ Moulton.

Leading the individual scorers, Shawn Jones won both the 400-meter and 800-meter races, the later in a state-meet record of 1:53.37. Braydon Bayless won the 200 and was 4th in the 100 and 5th in the Long Jump. Ben Morales took 2nd in the 1600 and 3200-meter races, losing the 1600 race by less than 1 hundredth of a second! The boys also earned gold in the 4×100 race (Elliot Hill, Braydon Bayless, Robby Witmer, Shawn Jones) and the 4×400 race (Elliot Hill, Per Sande, Ben Morales, Shawn Jones). Go Dragons!

Boys Team 3rd, Girls 5th at State Tennis Tournament

The Saint George’s Dragons travelled down to Yakima for Memorial Day weekend and came home with multiple pieces of hardware! Robert DeForest and Isaac Kos competed in the 1B/2B/1A State Boys Singles Tournament and placed 4th and 8th respectively. “This is the best that both athletes have done at the State Tournament, and they earned enough points for our Boys team to take home 3rd place!” says head coach Matt Melka.

The girls doubles team of Kalea Schlenker and Reagan Heller were looking to defend our school’s doubles championship from last season. “They came up short in the semifinals against the eventual state champions from Goldendale in a thrilling three-set match on Friday,” says coach Melka. The girls continued to battle on Saturday to secure a 4th-place finish as a doubles team, and finish tied for 5th place as a team with the points they earned over the weekend.

Longstreth Places 2nd at State Golf Championships

Sophomore Matt Longstreth played two great rounds at the WIAA State Golf Tournament at Tumwater Valley Golf Club on May 21-22. He finished the season with a 2nd place in State medal, missing the win by only 3 strokes. See a Photo Gallery of images from the State Tournament.

Although the Saint George’s golf team was small this year, the future looks bright! Nolan Rich, also a 10th grader, improved his scores by about 30 strokes from last year, and 8th grade newcomer Keagan Willson was consistently in the top 15 throughout the season. “If everyone continues improving at this rate, look for the Dragons’ golf team to be major contenders for the next several years for the State Title!” says golf coach Jason Reeder.
