    Strength by Seniors- Girls' Cross Country Wins 40th Ramble

    Girls’ Cross Country spent last season in 2020 without the usual fanfare and competitive schedule. The first four meets were canceled and the season was limited to three competitions: the John Cooper Invitational, a five-team Ramble, and the Houston Private School Championships. The South Zone and SPC championship meets were canceled as well. Also missing were seniors. All the veterans of last year were juniors from the class of 2021. Now they are leading their team as seniors, and the results tell the story as St. John’s convincingly won the 40th Ramble paced by first-time Ramble winner Cici Calhoun ’22. St. John’s finished with 41 points ahead of second-place John Cooper (58).  See Athletic.net for the complete team and individual results.

    Sgouros Paces Boys' Cross Country On and Off the Course

    If you're a St. John’s Cross Country fan, you know that Emmanuel Sgouros ’22, nationally-ranked runner and European champion, is fast, very fast. But what you may not be aware of is his impact on his teammates. This August, the 34th annual Greenhill 6-Mile relay race was won by St. John’s for the first time ever. The field was composed of 6A schools and a handful of SPC teams. Each school separated its runners into teams of four to cover the total distance in 1.5-mile legs. Danny Wasserman '24, William Thames '23, Wilson Bailey '23, and Sgouros represented St. John’s top foursome. When Sgouros was tagged by Bailey for the anchor leg, the Mavericks were about eight places out of the lead. Sgouros went to work and caught St. Mark’s top runner on the last turn for the victory and some new hardware for the Maverick program. Sgouros’ three teammates can also say they finally won a race with him in it.
