Cardinal Newman Athletics Weekly Update

Cardinal Newman Athletics is off to a great start for the school year 2022-2023!  
 
Over the summer Junior Duncan Wilson (Soccer) committed to Clemson University and Senior Anna Logan Gillens (Volleyball) committed to The University of Delaware.  This past Monday Junior Victoria Harris (Volleyball) committed to The University of South Carolina.  Congratulations to these 3 incredible athletes and we can't wait to see them sign to play their sport at the next level! 
 
Varsity Volleyball is off to a hot start as they are currently 12-1 with their only loss coming in the Championship Game of the Nation Ford Invitational.  This past week they defeated Lexington and Byrnes in a tri match on Thursday Night before travelling to Atlanta to compete in the SECIS Volleyball Classic.  They returned home champions defeating Brookstone (GA), Macon East (AL), Lamar School (MS), Spartanburg Christian and Jackson Academy (MS) in the final only dropping one set all week!  Varsity will travel to Aiken HS during the week and the Porter Gaud Invitational this weekend.  Middle School and JV will also officially get their season started this week so want to wish the best of luck to the volleyball program in the week ahead! 
 
Congratulations to the Cross Country Varsity Girls won the Palmetto State Cross Country Classic this past weekend at CIU and Caroline Timmons took first place individually!  Two big meets this week as the team will travel to the Pelicans Invitational Tuesday and the Eye Opener this weekend!

Thank you to all of you that came out and supported Community Night and the Back to School BBQ Tailgate before the football game Friday Night.  It was an incredible atmosphere for all those that attended and we look forward to seeing everyone make the trip to support the Cardinals in Darlington this Friday Night at Trinity Collegiate.  Kick off at 730pm.  Middle School Football gets started this Thursday at 6pm vs Thomas Sumter.
