It's a Thursday afternoon. School is long over, and a soccer match is underway on the field behind The John Cooper School.
On this night, I'm not here for the soccer match as I walk behind the stadium to Erik DeHaven's office.
From the outside I hear a noise followed by laughter. When the door opens, standing there with a big smile is Erik holding a wiffle ball bat and his wife Alex, both laughing as they had been playing a little game inside to pass the time.
It is a busy time over at One John Cooper Drive.
With the winter sports in full swing, girls and boys soccer and basketball can sometimes play all on the same night and all at home. Friday, January 10 saw that happen all against St. Andrew's Episcopal from Austin.
It was a big night for the Dragons. The girls basketball team got a 68-19 win, the boys fell 65-54, the girls soccer team ended their match in a 0-0 draw, the boys soccer team won 2-0.
Antonio Evans has been playing well for the Dragons' boys basketball team, averaging 17 points, five rebounds and four assists per game, He earned All-SPC honors a year ago.
These teams will be ones to keep an eye on the rest of the spring. Check out a photo gallery from the busy Friday at John Cooper School from last week. Photos by Lily Cox/VYPE
