A Sports Update from Athletic Director Bob Leake

The fall season is well underway and the Bishops have been hard at work representing the school across the Commonwealth. Following early camp, the teams jumped right into their respective competitions. Here’s a quick recap:

  • The football team currently sits at 1-2, with a great win over Covenant and loses to North Cross and Nansemond Suffolk Academy.
  • Boys soccer traveled to Christchurch to participate in their early season tournament, falling to St. Christopher’s and defeating Fredericksburg Christian. The soccer team also hosted the annual Seven Hills Soccer Classic on our VES campus this past weekend. The team finished 3rd out of the eight teams participating. Doug Hogan and Ghaven Williams were named to the all-tournament team. The soccer team will add to its 4-3-1 in Tuesday’s game against Covenant.
  • Cross Country is off to an amazing start. Led by Coach Jen Anderson, the Bishop girls are undefeated, knocking off Fuqua in a dual meet and dispatching five other schools in their meet at Westover Christian. The boys team defeated Fuqua at the dual meet and finished 2nd out of six schools at Westover.
  • Volleyball, led by first year coach Summer Jones, competed in the Temple Christian tournament early in the season and finished 2nd overall. With a difficult schedule at the start of the year, the girls are starting to find their rhythm and are putting together some quality matches. They currently have a 2-7 record.
  • Field hockey just returned from their overnight trip where they were victorious against division competitors, Nansemond Suffolk Academy and Christchurch, to improve to 3-2 on the season.
  • The girls varsity tennis has moved from the spring to the fall season and have made quite an impact in the early season. They are led by senior Rachel Naumann, who is currently 3-1 on the season.

There is plenty of action on the VES campus in the coming weeks highlighted by our Homecoming football game on October 3 against Atlantic Shores at 3 p.m. At halftime of the game we will honor our boys and girls 2015 lacrosse teams, both of which made deep runs into the state tournament. We hope to see you at the game!Meet the Coach: Summer Jones

Once again I want to thank all of you have been to a contest either here at VES or at an away game. The support of our families has been tremendous and, if the support our fans have brought to the fall season teams continues, it is going to be a great time to be a Bishop.
