The boys’ and girls’ swim team competed at the winter SPC games.

Falcons competed in various sports competitions from Feb. 9 to 11 as a part of the winter Southwest Preparatory Conference competitions. 

In the SPC boys’ basketball championships, the Kinkaid boys team lost the first game by 31 and repeated their loss in the second. They ended up with 8th place in the tournament. St. Andrew’s won the 3A championship title and Episcopal won the 4A title. 

“It was a rough season, but next year we’ll be ready to go, and were focusing on the future,” sophomore and starting forward Ethan Williams said.

Kinkaid’s girls’ basketball team put up a brave fight, finishing as runners-up at the SPC. Fort Worth Country Day and Episcopal emerged as the champions in the 3A and 4A divisions. The final score in their matchup against Episcopal was 66-54. 

Their performance, players said, was a testament to their skill, determination, and teamwork of a team backed mainly by first-year students. 

“It was a hard loss at the end, but this season wasn’t just about wins and losses, but about the journey and personal growth,” freshman Tori Walton said.

The boys’ soccer team finished in third. Cistercian and Episcopal claimed the top spots in the boys’ soccer championships in the 3A and 4A divisions. The Falcons demonstrated their prowess in an overtime victory versus John Cooper in the first round. The team had a thrilling 2-1 loss against Awty and a triumph over St. Andrews, which secured them the third place title. 

“It was exciting, and I was proud of how our team fought for each other and the passion we shared,” senior center back Grant Petersen said.

In the girls’ soccer championships, Trinity Valley and Episcopal emerged as the champions in the 3A and 4A divisions. The Kinkaid girls were knocked out of the winning bracket after a close 2-1 loss to St. Johns but fought hard to place 6th in the tournament. 

 “Even though the results of SPC weren’t what we wanted, we’re confident in next year,” freshman and goalie Conlee Hodges said.

Meanwhile, in wrestling, the Kinkaid boys fought bravely, taking third place in the competition. St. John’s took first, followed by St. Mark’s.

In the swimming and diving championships, Kinkaid juniors John Patterson and Olivia Hamilton placed third in diving. . Greenhill took the 3A championship title for the boys, and in the 4A division, St. Mark’s emerged as the champion. On the girls’ side, Awty claimed the 3A championship, and in the 4A division, Greenhill emerged as the champion. 

 “It was a great experience to compete, and I got third in the process,” Patterson said.
