Game Recap

In the first full game of the season the Sailors faced a perennially tough opponent. The Maroons of Holland Chr. were, as usual, a big strong team. The Maroons scored first, but a goal by Carson Nitz (assited by Reese Bos) had us tie at halftime. The Maroons scored a second goal early in the second half. The JV boys started to battle back when Thom DeVries scored , and then put us ahead with a 2nd goal with less than 10 min. left in the game. Holland Chr. proceed to even the score one minute later. The Sailors kept their heads up and responded just over a minute later with a game winning goal by Carson assisted by Thom. The Sailor defense held off several more attacks in the last 5 minutes. Solid goalkeeping by Freshman Nik Schepers was a key factor in the game. He made close to a dozen saves to help with the win.

Meet Recap

On Thursday, the South Christian boys’ tennis team played in their second consecutive tournament, the SC Quad. This time, the other schools consisted of North Point Christian, Traverse City St. Francis and GR West Catholic. The Sailors did extremely well, although the tournament was dominated by the extremely talented TC St. Francis, who did not lose a match all day.

TC St. Francis finished first with 24 points, followed by the Sailors with 12, narrowly edging West Catholic with 9 points. North Point Christian finished with 3 points.

“We knew it was going to be a challenging tournament,” said Coach P. “TC St. Francis has been an elite D-4 team as long as we’ve been competing with them. They have finished in the top 5 numerous times, and this team is as good or better than any I’ve seen.”

“And then, we’ve battled WC and NPC, both in this tournament, dual matches, regionals and state for as long as we’ve been D-4. These are great teams to compete against and we always seem to bring out the best in each other, win or lose.”

Although TCSF swept all the flight champions, the Sailors took 2nd place in 6 of the 8 flights.

Next up for the boys’ team is the EK invite, this Saturday at both SC’s courts and Caledonia’s courts.

Meet Recap

The South Christian boys’ tennis team opened the 2017 campaign with a convincing 1st place win in today’s Sailor Quad, hosted by South Christian. Losing only 4 of 24 matches all day, South Christian outpaced 2nd place Whitehall (12 pts), North Muskegon (11) and Calvin Christian (5).

Flight champions for the Sailors included:
1S – Devin Veldhouse
2S – Josh DeHaan
3S – Avery Brinkert
1D – Jackson Northouse/Jake Springvloed
2D – Cody Elzinga/Jerad Bos
3D – Ethan Silvernail/Matt Bergsma

Coach Pothoven was obviously pleased with the results. “We are thrilled any time we can win a tournament! I’m thrilled with how the guys competed. When we got out in front, we held the lead. And if we found ourselves behind in the middle of a set, we managed to turn the tables and come out on top.

Coach Pothoven made sure to single out the efforts of the players new to this year’s team. Freshman Nolan Diekevers won his first two matches, getting to the finals before losing a tough match to Whitehall. “Nolan is a tough competitor and it is obvious he’s going to improve as the season goes on. He’s a thinker out there, he’s cat-quick, and his ‘game-management’ keeps improving. It’s exciting to think where he can take his game.”

“And then, we have to highlight the play of Collin Pollatz and Tate Christians,” Pothoven continued. “These two have been members of our team for less than 24 hours and are thrown to the wolves. Shucks, they perhaps have been playing tennis seriously for the same length of time! And when we look at their play and at their scores, it is plain to see that they are getting better…from game to game!”

All said, a great start to the season! Tomorrow, if the rain holds off, the boys team will host TC St. Francis, West Catholic and North Pointe Christian.

Sailors News · Eight Great Fundraising Ideas for Booster Clubs – Presented by VNN


New jerseys, gear, entry fees, retreats – the wish list of opportunities to improve your teams is long, and often, the ways to finance them are short. While there’s no perfect one-size-fits-all fundraiser for every community, good inspiration is the first step.

Whether its your booster club, team, or program looking to raise funds and increase school spirit, here’s a few of our favorite ideas that we’ve seen across the network:

Jail-N-Bail – DeSoto High School (KS)

$10 files a warrant to arrest members of the community with phony allegations like “impersonating a golfer,” “failure to yield at the end of a sentence,” and “wearing pants way too high.” Once served with the warrant for their ‘arrest,’ the jailbirds are placed in a jail cell, a mug shot is taken, and they must call family/friends to raise bail.

Cheerleading Day – Pickens High School (SC)

CheerDay

Blue Flame cheerleaders dedicated their time to teach younger members of the community motion drills, jump technique, stunting fundamentals and sideline spirit in a day camp for a donation to the program. The campers, led by the PHS cheerleaders, performed a showcase at the conclusion of camp.

Lap-a-Thon – Gilmer High School (GA)

Racing

Anyone who has ever ran distance before knows that the hardest part isn’t necessarily the physical aspect, but the mental component of the sport, and in true Cross Country fashion, the Bobcats’ ‘hardest fundraiser,’ forces participants to run for an hour and a half around the track without stopping, with the main goal of seeing who can run the most laps consecutively in that time. Each lap ran accumulates money from sponsors, and all proceeds go towards funding the team.

Lift-A-Thon – Avon Lake (OH)

Earlier this Summer, the Shoremen football team held their 26th annual lift-a-thon, where players perform their max in 4 lifts, including the squat, hang clean, bench press, and deadlift in front of a crowd. Donations could be made in a player’s name, or to the team generally. Whittier Christian (CA) has a similar event coming up, the Push-Up-a-Thon, and Gilmer.

3 v. 3 Soccer Tournament – Roy High School (UT)

In the warm up to the Utah Spring Season, the Roy Royals Boys Soccer team held a 3v3 soccer tournament. At $20 per player, it was billed as a tune up for the year’s games across all levels, with teams starting at age 6 through adult.

Home Run Derby – Desert Ridge High School (AZ)

HRDerby

To help assist a teammate with unforeseen medical costs, the Jaguars held a home run derby. Split into two age groups, “19 and over” and “18 and under,” participants paid $20 to hit baseballs out of the park. The total raised, including raffles, auctions, and concessions, was $2,671!

Top Golf – Lakota West High School (OH)

Instead of practicing their own sport, the Firebirds of Lakota West held a fundraiser at the local West Chester Top Golf branch. At $100 per golfer, the cost included heavy appetizers, soft drinks, and visits from Lakota West NFL alumns Jordan Hicks (Philadelphia Eagles) and Ryan Kelly (Indianapolis Colts).

Local Restaurant EventsErie (CO), Lowell (MI), Westonka (MN)

If there’s one thing everyone loves, it’s food. Several schools connected with local restaurants and held fundraisers there. Whether the deal was for a portion of the day’s earnings donated back to the school (Chipotle and Buffalo Wild Wings are good national candidates for this), an ‘all-you-can-eat’ Belgian Waffles special, or selling coupons, this idea is a simple turn-key way to start earning.
