THE WINTER SPORTS TEAMS AT SECOND BAPTIST SCHOOL HAD THEIR FAIR SHARE OF SUCCESS FOR THE 2019-2020 SEASONS
The top performances came from the women's basketball team which reached the TAPPS 5A state title game; the women's soccer team reaching the second round of the TAPPS Division II playoffs and the men's swim team taking third at the TAPPS Division II State Meet.
The 2019-2020 version of the Second Baptist School women's basketball team won't soon be forgotten. The group made it all the way to the TAPPS 5A State Championship game and finished as the second best team in Texas. With a season like that, there would be no surprise when the postseason awards would roll in. Starting with the all district picks. Leyla Ertan '21, Kaitlyn Kollmorgen '20 and Victoria Ryan '20 were first-team picks, while Emily Blackmon '20 was named second team. Alyssa Elias '20 and Caroline Torn '20 earned honorable mention nods. Blackmon signed with Colorado Christian University in May. TAPPS all-state picks rolled out with Kollmorgen and Ryan being named first team.
