Athletics

St. Anne's interscholastic sports program is a huge part of after school life for students in grades 6 – 8. We participate in the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association and field nine seasonal teams including boys and girls soccer, lacrosse, basketball, baseball, and co-ed cross country. Girls can also play field hockey in the fall. (Forms for DIAA participation are required for all students.)

Beyond the DIAA, each winter St. Anne’s conducts a lively four-week indoor soccer tournament that is open to all middle school students. Our school has also offered various recreational sports such as a basketball team for grades 5 and 6 with the help of parents.

The fall sports season has come to an end and here is a recap from our coaches.

Cross Country - Coach Cristina Bromley & Coach Ryan Brown

The 2017 cross country season welcomed many returning runners in addition to eight new runners. Eleven students who had first run cross country in 6th grade continued to hone their racing skills, and many beat their personal records from the previous 2016 season. We especially appreciate the leadership of three eighth grade students: Caroline Bennett, Rachel Fonder, and Jaylen Douglas who participated all three years. This season we particularly worked on hill training, endurance, and dropping time in the second mile of the race. Amusing highlights from the season include entertaining student-led warm-ups, the much dreaded arm and ab exercises completed in unison post-practice, plank competitions involving students holding a plank for over a minute, and the annual Friendly's Fun Run. We ended the season with one win and five losses.

Field Hockey - Coach Pam Kern

This year's Field Hockey team had a solid core with 11 returning eighth graders and 5 strong sixth and seventh graders.  The team worked hard at practice to improve their fitness levels, fundamental skills, and game strategies.  

Highlights for the season included scoring a season high of 6 goals against Tome, outscoring our opponents 19 to 7 overall,  recording 5 shutouts, and christening our newly refurbished field. Most importantly, the team learned how to work together to have a very successful season.

The team finished with a record of 5 wins, 1 loss, and 3 ties.

Boys' Soccer - Head Coach Cal Hurtt, Asst. Coach Tara Liguori, Asst. Coach Peter Thayer

The 2017 soccer season was definitely one to remember. With about half the team graduating from the 2016 squad it was sure to be a young team. This was illustrated by having just three 8th graders returning from last year's team, plus two more who jumped in and helped fill out the team. There was a number of experienced players throughout the roster and the large number of 7th and 6th graders who contributed as starters bodes well for next year's campaign.  Ultimately the team had a 4-5-0 record along with a 1-0-1 record for the two "B" team games. Practices raised the level of play as the season went along and the team played their best games as the season came to a close.

Check out the latest news about our Heron athletes!

Cross Country update from Coach Cristina Bromley:  

We had a hard fight for the boys at the finish line against Newark Charter on Tuesday, October 11, 2017. They had 31 male runners to our 9 boys.  The final score was 26 (Newark Charter) to 29 (SAES) - the lower score is better in cross country. The boys really fought hard and were quite competitive!  We had first and third place for boys. Our top female runners both struggled in yesterday's meet.  Final score was 17 (Newark Charter) to 73 (SAES).However, they also outnumbered us with  22 girls to our 7, and some of our girls had their best races yet of the season, which is an accomplishment.

Field Hockey update from Coach Pam Kern:

Field Hockey christened the “new” lower field with a 1-1 tie against Independence School on Thursday, October 5.  The team worked together to come from behind and force the tie.  

On Tuesday, October 10, the Field Hockey team traveled to Caravel.  The grudge match of evenly talented teams resulted in a 0-0 tie. On Thursday we dedicated our new field and defeated Red LIon 2-1.

Soccer update from Coach Cal Hurtt:

The boys' soccer team had a difficult rematch at Caravel on Thursday.  Having fallen behind 2-0 at the half, the Herons fought hard to come back in the second half to tie the score 2-2, and then Caravel tucked in the winning goal in the final seconds of the game.
