Fall Sports Results
Girls Softball
Silk Hope vs. JS Waters 10-16-2014

In a very close game against JS Waters, the Lady Eagles came away with the win when Baylee Fox bunted in the winning run.


Kelsey Justice also had a great bunt to score the first run for the Eagles scoring Emery Moore who reached on a single earlier in the inning.  Also hitting for the Eagles was Ashlyn Ray with a bunt single to start the game.


The girls remain undefeated as they head into next week's 3 games.

Boys Soccer
Silk Hope vs. Margaret Pollard 10-16-2014
The boys soccer team played away against Pollard Middle School. The Silk Hope boys continued to play incredibly well and are starting to show more teamwork skills: communicating, passing, and shooting as a solid unit. By halftime, we only let 1 lucky shot in, and by the end of the game, only 1 more shot got in goal. 
Our team is getting better with each game they play; and they are true gentlemen, even under pressure. Playing extra hard this game were Camden Fuquay who played the entire game in net helping keep many shots out and both Hunter Cole & Daniel Soto who were all over the field saving the day as they swooped in to steal the ball and return it to their team to move back up the field.
