Faith Christian Academy: Fall sports preview 2019

Posted

August 12 signaled the start of the busy fall sports season for Faith Christian High School and the passionate Eagles supporters. Faith Christian had an excellent overall Fall last year (Football - Final 4, Volleyball - Top 8, Boys Soccer - State Playoffs, Men's Golf - 1 individual at State, Cross Country - Boys and Girls Teams finished in Top 12, Girls Softball - Final 4). Lets look ahead now to 2019 and see what lies in store.

Faith Football had an exciting run to the State Semi-Finals before losing to the eventual champion La Junta. Faith is loaded again with talent including one of the top QB's in all of Colorado in Isaiah Kroll. Coach Vince Siravo returns for his second season and looks to build on what was established last year.

Girls Volleyball has established themselves as a perennial power in 3A Volleyball with multiple trips to State and the Denver Coliseum. Coach Chris Powers only lost one Senior last season and returns a very experienced and seasoned roster to the court. Eagles play a tough non conference schedule and play in the Metro Conference, which is considered one of the toughest in the state. Girls will look to return back to the Denver Coliseum and make a deep run this year.

Boys Soccer had a bounce back season last year and made it back to the state playoffs and advanced before losing on a snowy Fall evening. Coach Nick Arter lost some key Seniors but still retained the core of his playoff team for this season. The Eagles have a large number of boys on the squad this year and there is a ton of excitement and optimism the boys will advance past what was accomplished last season.

Boys Golf continues to grow at Faith and add a more committed group of players to the roster. Coach Bob Hicks feels like he has a group that can add more state qualifiers this season. 3A Golf is among the best in Colorado so the challenge is tough but the boys are hopefully up for that challenge.

Boys and Girls Cross Country have become a solid and winning sport at Faith Christian during the last 3 season. Coach Steve Urban has built a committed group of long distance runners that have grown each year. Boys Cross Country took a hit in losing a large Senior group and will look to reload with a younger core. Girls Cross Country returns most of their key runners and have hopes on returning to State and placing for an even better finish.

Girls Softball is another Faith Fall program that has racked up the wins in the last few years. Coach JJ Garmatz used a strong core group of girls to make back to back Final Four appearances at 3A State. Eagles will certainly be going through a transition after losing 10 Seniors last year but it gives the younger group a chance to grow and gain experience. The Girls will certainly look to carry on the winning tradition this season.

The beauty of high school sports will be always be that these are kids and you never quite know what will happen. Faith look to excel not only on the court, track, diamond and field but in the classroom and community as well. We look forward to this Fall season and the memories that are going to be made.

Nathan Mauldin is the Assistant HS Athletic Director for Faith Christian High School.
