Alcuin Basketball Teams Wrap Up Stellar Season

Middle School Boys’ and Girls’ Teams Win Championship Titles         

Alcuin School, a leader in Montessori and International Baccalaureate® education, recently capped off its successful basketball season with two team championship wins and an expanding athletics program.

Since launching Alcuin Upper School in 2015, its athletics program has grown to include athletes performing at the varsity level. 

The school also rallied behind the sportsmanship of its elementary students with the Alcuin Hawks 5th and 6th grade teams finishing a competitive season.  They were led by Coach Kim Malone who encouraged each athlete to develop teamwork and helped the players hone basketball fundamentals.  

This spring Alcuin marked a special milestone as the Hawks hosted their first 1A TAPPS playoff game against Waxahachie Prep.  Although this basketball season was fierce, Coach Andy Silverman and Alcuin’s Middle School Boys’ team stayed one step ahead of the competition with an undefeated season. 

Coach Jordan Pierson’s Middle School Girls’ team also defeated the number one ranked Prince of Peace Christian School in the playoffs.

The athletes wrapped up the season with both the Middle School Boys’ and Girls’ teams successfully securing the TAPS D2 Championship and earning Alcuin an unprecedented double victory.   

“I’m always impressed with our students’ willingness to take on new challenges,” says Alcuin Athletic Director Kay Herndon. “Without their fearlessness, our athletic program would not have grown to what it is today.”
