The St. Joseph’s Catholic School track and field team completed the first round of its “postseason playoffs” in the Region 1-2A meet Wednesday at Southside Christian School.

The girls earned a very close second-place finish. A season’s worth of hard work and dedication was evident in the 15 personal records that were set during the meet. Twenty of the girls will be advancing to the next round, the state qualifier meet. Out of 17 events, St. Joseph’s will have female runners, throwers, vaulters and jumpers in 14 separate events.

The boys recorded a respectable third-place finish, gaining 13 personal records in the process. Fourteen will advance to the state qualifier in nine different events.

The 34 Knights advancing will compete with the top 2A athletes in South Carolina at the state qualifier in Columbia May 4. At this meet, the top eight finishers in each of the 17 events will advance to the state championship meet May 11 at Spring Valley High School in Columbia. Cheer them all on if you see them!

SJCS Softball Second in Region After Senior Night Win

Tuesday night’s game against Brashier Middle College delivered the ideal night for SJCS softball – bottom of the 7th action, an 8-7 Knight’s victory, and a great evening to celebrate the senior class team members!

The high scoring game was back and forth with early excitement as senior Maggie Barr capitalized on an error to turn her solo bunt into an in the park home run. Barr pulled out all the stops to round the bases after the throw to first overshot into the outfield.

The Knights were down 6-7 going into the bottom of the 7th inning (the final inning of the game, for those more accustomed to baseball). With two outs, Julia Slaughter dropped a long fly ball at the base of the center field wall, crossing home plate with the Knight’s second in the park home run of the game to tie it up. Slaughter was followed by Alice Norton and senior Abby Salerno both keeping the game alive with base hits, Norton making it to third as Kendall Harvey stepped up to the plate. With Harvey providing pressure at bat, Brashier’s catcher failed to stop a pitch, allowing Alice Norton to make a break from third base and slide into home to win the game for the Knights!

Congratulations to our softball ladies on such an exciting win and to our seniors and their families!

#7 – Maegan White
#11 – Maggie Barr
#16 – Abbie Salerno

Wizard of Oz Spring Musical Delights

This year’s spring musical production, The Wizard of Oz, was a tremendous success, drawing praise across the board for performance and technical presentation. The show involved a particularly large cast as many sixth grade students were casted as munchkins along side their high school friends.

« 1 of 20 »

“I am incredibly proud of and humbled by the immense student talent that was displayed throughout the production process in design, construction, and performance and am grateful for all who came out to support the show,” said director and Fine Arts Department Chair Teresa McGrath. “The students were overwhelmed by the support and encouragement they received from the school community.”

“It was one of the more enjoyable shows I’ve seen in all my years here,” said Headmaster Kiser. “Perfectly cast, with great singing, music, and dancing. All the parent involvement with sets and costumes was impressive too! All in all, a weekend to be justly proud of the SJCS arts program, not to mention a fitting final show for all the seniors.”

Special thanks to Marjorie Malphrus (orchestra), Tami Kiser (dance choreography), and Angela Hayes (chorus) for their excellent work!
