Antonian win the Houston Private School Classic
The Antonian Apaches are one of the top private schools in the state of Texas and showed why, winning the Houston Private School Classic last week.
The Houston Private School Classic is a three-day event hosted by Second Baptist School and St. Francis Episcopal.
“We were thrilled to be able to partner with SFE once again to put on the 3rd Annual Houston Private School Classic,” SBS athletic director Mike Walker said. “In 2020, we invited 12 schools and were just happy to have games for our athletes. Now, this event has grown to 24 varsity teams and 12 JV teams. So much thanks to Coach Mouton and his staff, Coach Harold Baber and his staff along with so many parent volunteers and staff members. This field was really competitive this year and we had some great games.”
The Apaches knocked off Second Baptist School in the gold bracket finals to take the trophy. St. Thomas Episcopal won the silver bracket over Fort Bend Christian Academy, while Trinity Christian Academy on Tennessee beat Cypress Christian to win the bronze bracket.

It was a celebration of hard work and sacrifice Wednesday as six Second Baptist School athletes signed their National Letters of Intent.
Three members of the 2022 TAPPS Division II State Championship baseball team made commitments. Luke Pettitte signed with Dallas Baptist University; Ty Baker will head to Texas A&M and Grayson Willey pledged to the University of St. Thomas.
“This has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid, and my father had the same dream when he was my age,” Pettitte said. “My brother played at Dallas Baptist University when they went to a Super Regional and I spent a lot of time there. I just fell in love with the school. It’s a great program, and it feels like family.”
Baker is a national recruit and will head to College Station. “I hope I can make the Aggie fans proud like I think I have done at Second Baptist,” Baker said. “The Aggies are in my home state and in the best conference (SEC) in the nation. We are going back to Omaha.”
Emily Rogers, a gifted student-athlete who is an all-state softball player and happens to own the school record in the 100m track event for SBS, will take her bat and glove to Colorado School of Mines to play softball.
CJ Hobbs, who owns three SBS distance running records, will run long distance for Dallas Baptist's cross country and track and field programs. “To realize my dream of running at the collegiate level is amazing,” Hobbs said. “It’s a great way to wrap up my high school career. The DBU program had a strong sense of camaraderie and I feel like the coaches are going to help me continue to progress in my career."
Zeke Bullington, a veteran guard on the #1 ranked (5A, TAPPS) varsity basketball team at SBS, will play basketball for St. Edward’s University.
