Congratulations to both Sherwood teams and their coaches. The new boy's soccer coach seems to be a big plus for the boy's team. Good job.

Excellent Victories against GISA schools that are TWO CLASSIFICATIONS lower than SCA! It's a scheme that is followed by SCA year after year so that they can claim they have a Great Season all the while getting slaughtered in their own rightful GISA AAA classification but oh didn't we have a grea won/loss record against much smaller opponent? Praise God!!

Sister_Riby, whom ever you claim yourself to be, perhaps you need to take some road trips and visit some of these schools and attend some of the sporting events. Apparently you don't know very much at all. First of all, just because a school is classified as A, or AA doesn't mean at all that those schools have less talent or not good worthy opponents. Don't speak about anything that you know nothing about. The sports program in some of the A and AA schools are just as good as AAA, and some of better. As for you information, two of the schools that the boys played, Augusta Prep and Trinity were roll over schools. SCA won because of excellent coaching. As for soccer, a score of 2-1, or 4-1, indicates a good game, and with every game you have to be there to really know the facts. In fact, in my opinion Augusta Prep was the better team as for as seasoned soccer players, and talent. The win for SCA was a matter of good coaching. SCA is only in its 3rd season of having a soccer team, with the first being an inaugural year, and neither year having full time soccer coaches. Plus, soccer to the majority of those young men as for as acutally playing the sport for an extended period of time is few. But, this is the first year for SCA to have a dedicated soccer coach. YES, I am very proud of SCA's soccer team's effort and successes no matter how small or the directions in which they come. I noticed over the course of time that you spend so much of your time blogging negative expressions about SCA, which is so sad on your part. These young men and women are involved in various activies with their school, win or lose. Why? Because they have heart. Get a life and clean out some of the junk I am sure that is in your closet. But, most inportantly, ask for God to give you a clean heart to remove the hate that harbors. To you I offer my Grace Card.

Oh yes, one more comment to sister_Ruby, so that you will be well informed, Augusta Prep, Trinity, Holy Spirit, Bullock, Arlington Christian, Westfield are just a few of the schools that participated in this tournament and they are in AAA, but located in other parts of the Region. So, Sherwood didn't not play the championship game against a lower classification school as YOU put it. Please have you facts before commenting. Go to the GISA site and read for yourself. Again , Congratulations SCA for your championship win in the tournament this week-end against strong and very good teams.
