News and Announcements
The Middle School Lacrosse team has had a positive start to our season. We have a very large number of girls who came out to play, ranging from every grade level in the middle school. New head coach Eileen Sweeney brings out a positive, energetic, and patience vibe to the girls. Our goal is to improve our skills each time we step onto the turf. The girls have been working very hard to improve their stick work which has improved our passing, shooting, and scooping on the field.

Coach Wolfe and Coach Morgan are very excited about the upcoming season for Village Varsity Boys Lacrosse! We have a solid, dedicated group of young men that have demonstrated not only commitment to us coaches but to their teammates as well. Each member of the team is ready to check his ego at the door which allows us to collectively learn and grow as one unit. We have a ten game schedule ahead of us that promises to be both competitive and challenging and we look forward to improving each day on the field.
At Thursday’s Spring Sports Media Day, Mariana O signed her commitment letter to play golf at The University of St. Thomas. Mariana has been at The Village School for 3 years and has been the MVP of the golf team each year she has played. As a sophomore, Mariana qualified for the State Tournament where she had a top 20 finish. As a Junior, Mariana would also qualify for State and she shot her career low round of 82 that season. As a senior, Mariana hopes to qualify for State for the 3rd consecutive year, although this time it would be at the 6A level.
Please wish Mariana congratulations for her recent commitment to The University of St. Thomas. We wish her luck this golf season and are proud of her amazing accomplishment.
This year’s middle school golf team has a nice blend of experience, and young talent. The team features eight players, with four returners from last year’s squad. Returning for the Vikings are 8th graders, Cole B and George P. The returning 7th graders include Michael L and Liam B. All four of the players have shown a lot of improvement in their games.
“When you have returning golfers, the thing that we are looking for is improved consistency. These four are hard workers, who will set the tone for us throughout the season.”
Four new golfers will help bolster the squad’s talent and depth. The new faces include 8th grader, Aditya A, as well as two 7th graders, Callum L, and Dylan F. Rounding out the team is the lone 6th grader, Kris K.
“The four new players have shown a ton of potential, and will compete to earn one of our team spots at the HJPC Championship. The increased competition will only make our team better.”
The Vikings’ finished in 3rd place in their first tournament. Michael L led the way, shooting a 43 at Hermann Park Golf Course. Cole B opened his season with a 45. George P and Liam B also competed. The next tournament for the team is Wednesday, March 8th, and will feature the four new middle school golfers.
The 8th grade boys’ lacrosse team is looking forward to another great season ahead. The team has been working hard to fortify its fundamental skills thus far. Coach Wolfe is excited to see the amount of commitment that has already been shown from the dedicated young men on the team. Our first game will be held on Wednesday, February 22nd. We hope to see you there, and go Vikings!
